Meet Golf Channel Host Anna Whiteley

golf host and broadcaster Anna Whiteley

Who is the newest face on the Golf Channel? Anna Whiteley. She officially joined the cast of Morning Drive beginning on June 3, 2019.

On that date, Whiteley began her job as a full-time co-host on the network's daily news show.

Whiteley is British, so the move from London to Orlando is a big step not just professionally but also personally. "I look forward to planting new roots in Florida and hitting the ground running with my Morning Drive colleagues," said Whiteley.

Where have Americans seen Whiteley before? Golfing World videos are popular on YouTube. If you've ever stumbled from golf video to golf video on that site, you might have stumbled across Anna. She was the longtime host of the golf magazine television show, which also aired weekly on Golf Channel and Sky Sports. Whiteley has also appeared on Golf Channel before as a correspondent from the European Tour.

And she's not the first British host of Golfing World to make the jump to the Golf Channel. Three years ago, Cara Banks, then the Golfing World host, left to join Golf Channel's Morning Drive. Now, with Banks moving to hosting duties on the early evening Golf Central newscast, Whiteley replaces Banks once again.

Esther Henseleit an LET Rookie Up-and-Comer

golfer Esther Henseleit

Esther Henseleit, a young German golfer who reached 10th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings before turning pro, is now a winner as a pro.

Henseleit, age 20, won the Skafto Open 2019 on the Swedish Golf Tour, an event co-sanctioned by the LET Access Series. Henseleit has been playing on both the Ladies European Tour and the LETAS in 2019. And at the time of this writing, she has a large lead in the rankings for the LET Rookie of the Year Award.

Two weeks after she finished tied for the 30th at the 2019 U.S. Women's Open, Henseleit won by one stroke in Sweden. She opened with a 64 and closed with a 64, with a round of 68 in-between. That's some pretty great scoring! Her final score was 11-under 196 (it was a par-69 golf course).

On the big tour (the LET), Henseleit has eight Top 10 finishes in 10 starts and currently sits third on the money list. She is definitely a strong contender to make the European Solheim Cup team.

Her best LET finishes so far in 2019 include two runner-up showings, first at the Lalla Meryem Cup and then at the La Reserva de Sotogrande. She also has a pair of third-place finishes plus a fourth.

Photos of Jeongeun Lee6, 2019 US Women's Open Champ

Jeongeun Lee6 won the 2019 U.S. Women's Open at the Country Club of Charleston — not just her first major championship win, but her first LPGA Tour win. Lee6 won seven times on the Korean LPGA, however, before joining the U.S. LPGA Tour at the start of the 2019 season.

Right now she has blonde hair, but most of these photos show her natural black hair.

Lee6 really embraces that "six." You often see the numeral, either written as a number (6) or spelled out (Six), on her clothing (where "6IX" is part of her logo), and always see it on her bag. She marks her ball with a 6. Her nickname is "Lucky 6" and that is also the name of her fan club.

You sometimes see her name spelled "Jeong Eun Lee 6." KLPGA scoreboards often noted her as "JE Lee," and her caddie's bib at the USWO read "J.6.Lee." But you can just call her 6 or Lucky 6.
