Katie Bakken

The beautiful Katie Bakken will be playing in the final stage of LPGA Qualifying Nov. 29-Dec. 3, chasing her LPGA Tour card. We certainly hope to see her on our television screen often next year.

A Minnesota native, Katie B walked on at the University of Minnesota and then played well enough, including winning the Peggy Kirk Bell Classic, to earn her scholarship. After graduation, Bakken won the 2001 Minnesota State Women's Open, and also played her first LPGA Tour events that year.

Katie played in Asia and Australia, then full-time on the Futures Tour in 2002 and 2003. Then she qualified for the Ladies European Tour and played there in 2004, 2005 and this year. She set a course record at the LET Tenerife Ladies Open in 2005.

Her career has certainly been a steady progression upward through the ranks, and last month she played her way in the Finals of LPGA Q-School. If history holds, we'll see Katie B on the LPGA Tour soon.

Did I mention she's beautiful?

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.
