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.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
