Australian Golf Calendar: Kristie Newton

This is Kristie Newton as she appears in the "Top Shots" calendar - she's Miss June. Kristie also appears on the calendar cover. Newton models when she's not playing golf; on the course, she has played almost exclusively in Australia to this point.

Newton is the daughter of former professional golfer Jack Newton, who played on the Australian, European and American PGA tours back in the 1970s and '80s. Jack Newton was beaten by Tom Watson in a playoff at the 1975 British Open. His career was ended by a horrific accident: he walked into a spinning airplane propellor and lost his right arm, right eye and suffered terrible abdominal injuries. But he still teaches in Australia, where he has the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation.

The "Top Shots: Women of Professional Golf 2006 Calendar" can be purchased at http://www.womensgolfcalendar.com/. Some of the proceeds benefit breast cancer support and others benefit a scholarship fund for the ALPG.

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.
