Slovenia Pro Golfer Ana Belac

Slovenia golfer Ana Belac

Ana Belac turned pro in March of 2020. In August, she played in her first LPGA Tour tournament. In October she won her first pro tournament on the Symetra Tour.

Not too shabby a progression into the pro ranks for the Slovenian golfer!

Belac, age 23 at the time of this writing, began her pro career on the Symetra Tour with a July 2020 debut. In her second tournament, she finished 11th. In her third, ninth. In her fifth event on the Symetra Tour, Ana placed fifth at the IOA Golf Classic in September. The next week, she had a 10th-place showing. So, if you're not keeping score at home, that means that her in her first six starts, she had three Top 10 finishes plus an 11th.

Which brings us to the Carolina Golf Classic, a tournament that concluded on October 31. And a tournament that Ana Belac won for her first professional victory. She led after the first round, after the second and after the final — a wire-to-win win. Belac had a 6-stroke edge going into the final round, and finished at 7-under 281 to win by four. She hit 49 of 56 fairways for the week.

Early returns, however, show that putting is the strength of Ana's game. She currently ranks second on the Symetra Tour in putts per GIR. Her win in the Carolina Golf Classic also bumped her up to second on the money list, making her very, very likely to earn her LPGA Tour card for next season.

Before turning pro, Belac played college golf at Duke. She was an all-conference selection after her sophomore and junior seasons, helped lead Duke to the 2019 NCAA Championship, helped lead Slovenia to victory at the 2019 Arnold Palmer Cup, and was named first-team All-America in 2020.

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.

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.
