Ashley Gomes

Ashley Gomes' is a recognizable face after she twice has been a popular cast member of "The Big Break" on the Golf Channel ("Big Break VII: Trump National" and "Big Break: Reunion").

But you might recognize this specific photo, since it appeared in the February issue of Golf Digest. That publication gave a nice plug to Ashley and to Play Golf Designs, the Las Vegas company that can manage your golf outing or pair with you Ashley or many other touring pros for a day on the links.

Ashley is a California girl and played collegiately at San Jose State, where she won twice, including the 2004 WAC conference championship. She was the WAC player of the year that season. Ashley turned pro in 2005 and has played most of three seasons on the Futures Tour.

Ashley's home base in 2008 is Scottsdale, where she's close to her swing coach Doug Brooke, who teaches out of Talking Stick. "My goals are to improve my shots from 100 yards and in," Gomes told me, "and work really hard on my short game."

And to win, of course. Ashley will remain in Scottsdale through March and play in some of the Cactus Tour events during that period. Then the Futures Tour gets back into gear in April.

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.

Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st.
