Brandi Jackson

brandi jackson picturesDid you know that Brandi Jackson once had country music star Vince Gill as her caddie? It's true. That's them together to the right at the 2004 LPGA Franklin American Mortgage Championship, a tournament Gill hosted with his wife Amy Grant.

Here's how it happened: Brandi attended a Gill concert at Clemson University in 1995. She was backstage after the show along with many other fans waiting to get Gill's autograph. Gill, a golf nut, spotted the Ping cap Brandi was wearing and they started talking golf. And Gill wound up telling Brandi that if she ever made it to the professional ranks, he'd caddie for her.

Bet he never thought he'd have to pay up on that promise! But he did. By 2004, Brandi was a member of the LPGA Tour, and when she showed up at Gill's tournament she spotted him at the pro-am party. She reminded Gill of that long-ago chat. Gill remembered, said "I'm a man of my word," and a few days later replaced Brandi's father on the bag for the week.

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.
