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!

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." 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.
