Jaye Marie Green Wins 2016 LPGA Q-School

Jaye Marie Green claimed medalist honors at the LPGA's 2016 final-stage qualifying tournament, beating runner-up Olafia Kristinsdottir by one stroke.

And guess what: This is the second time Green has won Q-School. She was also medalist at the final stage in 2013, and she is the first golfer in all the years the event has been played in Daytona Beach, Fla. (since 1991) to win it twice.

Jaye, still only 22 years old, turned pro at age 19 and her rookie LPGA season was in 2014. She has three career Top 10 finishes thus far and nearly half a million in career earnings.

In the just-completed 2016 season, Green finished 112th on the money list. She didn't have to play Q-School, but doing so - and especially winning - improves her status for 2017 and guarantees her a full season. Don't be surprised if Jaye makes a leap in 2017.

First LPGA Win for Charley Hull

Charley Hull, one of the bright young stars in women's golf, broke through for her first LPGA Tour victory in the 2016 season-ender. And it was a big one: the CME Group Tour Championship.

Hull was five off the pace following the second round, but a 66 in the third round moved her up to first place. Then Charley fired another 66 in the final round to finish at 19-under 269 and win by two strokes. She even broke the tournament scoring record. Cristie Kerr had the previous mark of 271.

Hull, still only 20 years old, appeared in the Solheim Cup playing for Team Europe before she was an LPGA Tour member and before her first professional win. Charley's first Solheim appearance was in 2013; she made the squad again in 2015. Pro win No. 1 happened on the Ladies European Tour in 2014, and her rookie season on the LPGA was in 2015.

She missed only one cut as a rookie last year, finishing 48th on the money list with two Top 10 finishes. In 2016, she entered the season-ender the Tour Championship with four Top 10s. Now she has five, plus the victory.

And, as you can see, she looks very different off the course than on it.

Minjee Lee Wins in China

A birdie on the final hole gave Australia's Minjee Lee the victory at the 2016 Blue Bay LPGA tournament in China. Lee stumbled on the 71st hole with a bogey, but recovered with that final-hole birdie. Jessica Korda had a change to tie with an eagle putt at the last, but missed. Korda birdied and was runner-up, one behind Lee.

It was the third career LPGA Tour victory for Minjee, who is still (hard to believe!) just 20 years old. It was also her second LPGA win of 2016, following the Lotte Championship in April. Her first LPGA win was at the 2015 Kingsmill Championship.

Watch Liz Elmassian Show Off Her Trick Shot Skills

Elizabeth Elmassian is a 20-year-old amateur golfer from Australia. She is one of the top Australian amateurs, and is ranked No. 152 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings at the time of this writing.

There's no question Liz has a future in professional golf; the only question is, at what level? That remains to be seen, but she's working hard at her game.

She possesses plenty of skill, which is obvious not just by her ranking but by her trick shot abilities. It takes lots of skill to pull these off and, we imagine, lots of patience for multiple takes while you try to get it right.

Check out Elmassian's trick shots below, and follow her on social media (Instagram: @lizelmassian - Twitter: @lizelmassian) for future updates.

Another Win for Madelene Sagstrom in Record-Breaking Symetra Season

Madelene Sagstrom is a winner again on the Symetra Tour with her victory in the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout, completed in Arkansas on Oct. 2.

And it's easy to say now that Sagstrom is having one of the greatest years in the history of the Symetra Tour/Futures Tour. But you don't have to take our word for it: The tour itself, in a headline on its website, called Sagstrom's 2016 the "greatest season in tour history."

The win in Arkansas was Sagstrom's third of the year, and that earns her a "battlefield promotion" to the LPGA Tour. Alas, the LPGA has no more full-field, domestic tournaments in 2016, so that promotion is on paper only. Still, it's a very nice achievement, and Sagstrom is set for her LPGA rookie season in 2017.

Sagstrom turned pro early in the year after finishing her college career at LSU. She made 14 starts on the Symetra Tour and missed the Top 10 in just three of those.

Included in those 11 Top 10 finishes, and in addition to her three victories, Sagstrom posted three runner-up finishes, two third-places, one fourth and one fifth. So 10 of her 14 starts resulted in Top 5 finishes. That's good stuff!

Earlier in the season Sagstrom became the first Symetra Tour golfer to pass $100,000 in winnings in a single season. With her victory at El Dorado, she became the first to win more than $150,000 in a single year on this tour. (She's more than $60,000 ahead of second-place Jackie Stoelting on the money list.)

Sagstrom leads the tour in scoring average, the only player (as of now) below 71.0. She's second in driving distance at 278 yards.

Needless to say, Madelene has already locked up both the Symetra Tour rookie of the year and player of the year awards.

We wouldn't go so far as to say Madelene's year is the best in tour history - there are golfers who've won as many as 9 or 8 tournaments in a single season in the Futures Tour's past - but it's definitely up there.

See you on the LPGA Tour in 2017, Madelene.
