Instagramming with ... Gina Cellucci

If you follow @golfbabes on Twitter, where we've retweeted her, you might better know Gina Cellucci as "Gina Marie Sophia." That's the name (her middle names) that she uses on social media. Speaking of which, you can follow Gina on:

But just who is Gina Cellucci? You might say she's a hybrid: part fitness babe, part golf babe - all babe.

Gina is a fitness professional who has Titleist Performance Institute certifications and works with a lot of golfers. But more on that in a minute.

A great athlete, Gina grew up playing just about every sport she could find: soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, track and field. She later ventured into more extreme sports like wakeboarding, surfing, snowboarding, dirt biking, trail running - she's even played ice hockey and polo.

She went to college at Southern Illinois University, but now lives in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, where her activities include frequent hikes up Camelback Mountain, and where she embarked on a career as a fitness trainer.

Gina only took up playing golf as she was achieving her Level One certification from the Titleist Performance Institute, a training program that focuses on fitness specific to golfers and the golf swing. And while other sports came naturally to her, Gina says that golf has been her biggest challenge: "Golf has challenged me the most," she told Golf Babes. "I feel that I enjoy golf so much because it is that challenging game that keeps me coming back for more. I am a very naturally competitive person and golf was the perfect game for me to get into and try to master."

And she quickly got her handicap down to 10. A few shoulder injuries have since got in the way of further improvement on the course, but haven't dampened Gina's love of her (relatively) new sport. She plays, she practices, and becoming a golfer herself has certainly helped her help her golf clients.

"I feel that obtaining the knowledge (of golf) and adopting the philosophy of TPI into my personal training has tremendously benefited all the athletes I work with," she said.

Gina has also since moved up to the next level of certification within the TPI program.

"I currently play on the weekends as much as possible, usually with friends like (Arizona Cardinals wide receiver) Michael Floyd and other professional athletes trying to better their golf game in the off season," Gina said. "I also try to get a practice session in here and there during the week. I am not the greatest golfer, but I would consider myself a great golf fitness trainer."

Gina currently trains clients at a private gym in Scottsdale, Ariz., called Premier Fitness Systems. If you're in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and interested in golf fitness training or other training, you can visit the gym website - - to contact Gina.

Skipping Balls with Blair O'Neal and Kelly Rohrbach

Skipping golf balls across water is one of the traditions at The Masters every year, where golfers try to skip their balls across the pond on Augusta National's 16th hole.

But what does it take to pull off the ball-skipping shot? Just how hard is it to accomplish? For the answer, let's turn to the Golf Digest video series called The Sexiest Shots in Golf. Blair O'Neal (above) is one of the regulars in that series, and for the ball-skipping video she is joined by Sports Illustrated swimsuit model (and collegiate golfer) Kelly Rohrbach (photo below). No, neither of them is in a bikini in the video, but they are both beautiful, because, well, they can't not be.

Let's watch:

Shin-ae Ahn Wins 'Best Dressed' At World Ladies Championship

Each year at the World Ladies Champions, an LET co-sanctioned tournament in China, public voting is held to determine the best-dressed among all the players entered.

In 2015, the winner of the best-dressed award was Shin-ae Ahn. This is what she wore to the players' welcome party:

It's a little dark, but here's another look at the same dress, this photo shared by Shin-ae on Instagram:

Ahn is obviously a fan of floral designs, because here's another photo she posted during the week of the World Ladies Championship:

So she won the "Best Dressed" award this week at Mission Hills China, but how did Shin-ae do in the much more important tournament standings? Pretty darn good. This Korean golfer who usually plays on the KLPGA finished seventh in China at 6-under 286.

McKenzie Lyng Branching Out

McKenzie Lyng - you might know her better by her maiden name, McKenzie Jackson - is branching out into acting. The former Big Break cast member can currently be seen on TV appearing in her first commercial for the skincare product Proactiv. McKenzie is featured in the clip below that stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, and first appears at the 33-second mark:

Shorter versions of the commercial, ones focusing on Lyng's story alone, are also currently airing on select channels and in select markets.

"I am trying to get more into the commercials and different acting roles - hopefully some more opportunities come my way," McKenzie told us. To that end, she recently signed with an agency.

But she's still a professional golfer, too. She was known as McKenzie Jackson when she competed on the Golf Channel's Big Break Mexico series. But she became McKenzie Lyng on Oct. 25, 2014.

McKenzie's golf plans this year are to play Cactus Tour and Canadian Tour events, working her way toward LPGA Q-School.

Linda Henriksson

A short video Linda Henriksson posted to one of her social media accounts caught my eye - a coordination drill that she does:

Do you think you could do that? As I told Linda on Facebook, I'd probably fall over (or break my shins) if I tried. But, according to Linda, "You should try! It's not as complicated as it looks!" So if you want to work on your hand-eye coordination, give this drill a try.

Linda is from Finland, and as a little girl her interests were more in football (soccer), track and field, ballet and piano. But she took up golf at age 8, and one year later was playing in under-12 tournaments. She began high school at age 14 - she's one smart golfer - and after graduating high school in 2008 moved to Sweden to go to university.

Linda turned pro in 2011 and played the Nordea Tour in 2011-12. In 2013 she moved up to the LET Access Series, the feeder tour into the Ladies European Tour. Henriksson finished 13th on the LAS money list that year with finishes including third, fourth and eighth. Then, at LET Q-School at the end of 2013, she earned partial status on the LET for the 2014 season.

Henriksson got into five LET events last year and played more on the Access Series (including a fourth-place finish), then went back to Q-School and improved her position for 2015.

Among the other places we've noticed Linda was on's ranking of the Sexiest Women in Golf for 2014.

Want to get to know Linda a little better? Of course you do! So follow her on Twitter, on Instagram, or on Facebook.

Virginia Tech Coach Carol Robertson Makes 2 Aces in 3 Holes

Most golfers go our entire lives without a hole-in-one. But Carol Robertson recently made two - not just in the same round, but in the first five holes of her round!

Robertson is the head coach of the women's golf team at Virginia Tech, a team that Robertson is putting together for its first-ever season, the 2015-16 season. The Hokies decided in 2013 to add the program, and its first tournament begins Sept. 20 at the Lady Paladin Invitational at Furman. Robertson came to Virginia Tech after a couple years as the head coach at Old Dominion. As a competitor, Robertson played collegiately at James Madison and won the Virginia Amateur in 2006.

But with the university on Spring Break, Coach Robertson headed south to the warmer climes of Florida. And playing at Celebration Golf Club in Orlando on Monday, Robertson came up aces.

Ace No. 1 happened on the third hole, a 159-yard par-3. Amazingly, it wasn't long until this happened:

Ace No. 2 came just two holes after the first, on the 161-yard fifth hole. Two holes-in-one in her first five holes, two aces within a 3-hole stretch. That's amazing!

And probably a good way to make sure your freshmen listen when you coach 'em up.
