Bridget Dwyer

You know Bridget Dwyer from "The Big Break VI: Trump National" - the beautiful Hawaii native who finished as runner-up that season in the women's portion of the competition.

Here are a few things you may not know about Bridget:

  • She attended Punahou School, since made famous (on the mainland, anyway; it has always been famous in the islands) by Michelle Wie.

  • She was a three-time All-Scholar selection in college by the National Golf Coaches Association.

  • Which makes sense when you realize that Bridget earned degrees at UCLA in both economics (major) and Japanese (minor).

  • Beginning in high school and continuing today, Bridget works with the Hawaii Teen Leadership Academy, helping often troubled teens find a more positive path in life.

  • Since turning pro after helping UCLA win the national championship in 2004, Bridget has played on the Futures Tour, Women's Canadian Tour, West Coast Tour, and a tour I didn't even know existed, the Chinese Tour.
Bridget is on the Futures Tour this year, with a best finish so far of ninth.

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.
