Katy Jarochowicz

katy jarochowicz

The lovely Katy J is Australian, a native of Wollongong (don't you love Aussie place names?) in New South Wales. Now 24, she turned pro in 2004 at the age of 21. That followed an amateur career in which she was first the No. 1-ranked junior in NSW, then the No. 1-ranked amateur in the state.

In 2003 Katy won the Australian Ladies Amateur Championship; in 2004 she represented Australia in the Espirito Santo Trophy (World Cup) competition. She also, along the way, won a couple team tournaments with her mates Carlie Butler (1999 NSW Ladies Foursomes Championship) and Sarah Kemp (2004 Tasmanian Ladies Foursomes Championship).

Since turning pro, Jarochowicz has competed on Australia's ALPG Tour, on the Ladies European Tour, on the Futures Tour, and on the Sweden-based Telia Tour. She currently has non-exempt status on the LET and is playing primarily on the Telia Tour this year. She'll be back at the LET Qualifying Tournament later in the year hoping to earn full LET playing privileges for 2008.

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.
