Back In the Winner's Circle with Carly Booth

The long wait for another Ladies European Tour victory is over for Scottish golfer Carly Booth: She's a winner again after claiming the trophy at the 2019 Tipsport Czech Ladies Open.

Booth, still just 27 years old, hadn't won any pro tour events since 2012. That year, she won twice on the LET, including her home country's Ladies Scottish Open, and seemed on her way to bigger things.

There were some injury setbacks along the way, and although Booth maintained her status as a golf glamour girl she had trouble finding the winner's circle again.

After seven years, though, Booth is back. Booth finished the Czech tournament, a dual-ranking event for the LET and LET Access Series, at 9-under 207 after rounds of 68, 69 and 70. She beat the quartet of runners-up — Finland’s Sanna Nuutinen, France’s Anais Meysonnier and England's Charlotte Thompson and Hayley Davis — by one stroke.

“I’m a little bit flabbergasted by the whole day. I played good golf and I really had to dig deep in the final round. I’m overwhelmed with happiness,” Booth said to the assembled media afterward.

“It’s been seven years, so it’s a bit of a shock. Not knowing what the winning score was, I didn’t know anything about the leader board and I made a really solid par in the end."

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.

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.
