Minju Kim and the 'Golf Bowling' Video

Have you seen the "golf bowling" video that came out of Korea? A Korean LPGA golfer tees up a ball at the end of a bowling lane and then, using her driver, smacks the ball into the pins at the end of the lane. They all fall down — a strike! If you haven't seen it, here it is:

The golfer in the video is Minju Kim, who is a Class A LPGA teaching professional (with some competitive experience) in South Korea. She has at least some prominence in that country because she has a sponsorship deal with the Korean division of Fila Golf, part of the worldwide Fila Sports brand. In fact, it was Fila Golf for whom Minju Kim pulls off this trick shot. As you see near the end of the video, a Fila Golf message comes onscreen, making this video, essentially, an ad for Fila.

We take no position on the question of whether Minju actually pulled off this shot, or whether it might, instead, have been accomplished with good video editing. (Others have tried to look into that question and the best we can say is that nobody has proved it isn't real.)

But we do take a position on Minju Kim: She's definitely a golf babe!

Sharmila Nicollet Back in the Winner's Circle

She had to wait longer than she wanted (or probably expected), but India's Sharmila Nicollet is a winner again. Sharmila claimed the Hero WPGT 18 tour's second-leg tournament in Mumbai, which concluded on Jan. 25, 2018. And she did it by shooting 68 in the final round, tied for low score of the day.

Nicollet did it despite a late stumble - she bogied her final two holes in regulation. That put her finishing, 54-hole total at 214, tied with Neha Tripathi. But Sharmila then won the playoff to claim the title.

It was the first tournament victory for Nicollet since August 2016 at an event also on the Indian women's circuit. Nicollet also has victories on the Ladies Asian Golf Tour and has played several seasons on the Ladies European Tour.

Sharmila told reporters at the Mumbai tournament that her plans for 2018 include playing the LAGT, the LET, plus several coming events in Australia.

Golf Magazine's 2018 'Most Stylish' Videos

In recent years, Golf.com, the website of Golf Magazine, has done annual "Most Beautiful Women in Golf" photo spreads. In 2018, the publication did something different. It switched to the "Most Stylish People In Golf," included both men and women, and did photo spreads in the actual magazine, not just online.

Of course, we're only interested in the "Most Stylish" female golfers. This is Golf Babes, not Golf Dudes.

The five women Golf Magazine included in solo photoshoots were Michelle Wie (named Most Stylish overall), Paula Creamer, Amanda Balionis (a presented on pgatour.com), Lexi Thompson and Paige Spiranac. (Bailey Mosier Chamblee of the Golf Channel was also included as part of what Golf Magazine named the Most Stylish Couple, with husband Brandel Chamblee.)

Along with the magazine photo spreads, the publication put together behind-the-scenes videos from each of those shoots. And that's what we're presenting here. These are the five such videos for the five women featured by Golf Magazine:
