Blair O'Neal

blair oneal - blair alana
This is Blair O'Neal, who played college golf at Arizona State University and has gone on to play professionally on the Futures Tour and elsewhere. She's also gone on to quite a successful modeling career, where she goes by her first and middle names, Blair Alana.

In fact, her modeling career has likely eclipsed her golf career - on her myspace profile, she lists "model" ahead of "professional golfer" in the "Career" category.

But looking at her Futures Tour bio, her numbers show plenty of on-course potential. In 2005, she made 5 of 9 cuts with scoring average of 74.78; in 2006 she made 4 of 6 cuts with a scoring average of 74.81. Those are actually pretty good numbers for the Futures Tour - much better than you see for many other part-time players. Makes me think if she played full-time and committed fully to golf, she'd have a good shot at improving those numbers.

But, given the money available on the Futures Tour and other developmental, regional and overseas tours in women's golf, it's a good bet she's making more money modeling. She's done print work, runway modeling and even a little acting. And she's been featured twice in the Golf Digest Japan calendar.

Here's a 2005 article about her from the Arizona Republic.

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.
