Erica Blasberg - Q-School Grad

Congratulations to Erica Blasberg on making it through the final stage of LPGA Q-School last week. Blasberg finished in a tie for 12th (the Top 15 earned fully exempt status on the LPGA Tour).

Blasberg left the University of Arizona early to turn pro, and her rookie year on the LPGA Tour was 2005. She made 11 of 16 cuts that year and finished 109th on the money list. This past year, she also made 16 starts and finished 112th on the money list (although she earned a little more money than in 2005).

Maybe 2007 will be breakout year for Erica. She's drawn many comparison to Natalie Gulbis, but so far those comparisons have more to do with modeling and marketing. Hopefully her golf will start eliciting comparison to Gulbis, too.

In an interview with LPGA.com, Blasberg revealed that her nickname is "Skip" because on the first day of workouts in her freshman year the golfers were required to do a skipping drill ... and she couldn't do it. She had forgotten how to skip.

When asked what she absolutely must do each morning to get her day started, Blasberg replied, "Eat a bowl of 'Frosted Flakes' and go on the Internet."

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.
