Another Calendar Too Hot to Handle

Remember a couple years ago when the USGA banned sales of Natalie Gulbis' calendar at the U.S. Women's Open because they deemed it too hot?

There's a calendar due out any day now featuring golfers from the ALPG (Australian Ladies Professional Golfers) tour. The calendar was shot to raise money for breast cancer research, with funds pegged to go to Australia's National Breast Cancer Foundation.

We've been getting updates on this calendar from one of the golfers featured in it, who implied that it was pretty hot. Well, it turns out it's too hot for the NBCF. A print run of 20,000 was taking place last week in hopes of getting the calendar out in time for this past weekend's Australian Open.

But midway through the run, the NBCF called a halt to it, saying they didn't want their logo used with the calendar.

The calendar is still going to be printed, but now its release has been delayed a bit. Proceeds will still benefit breast cancer research, but now the McGrath Foundation.

Among the golfers featured in the calendar are Nikki Garrett, Sarah-Jane Kenyon and Kristie Newton.

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.
