On the Road with Perry Swenson

Gah! Who let Charlie Rymer onto Golf Babes? Hey, sometimes you have to take the bad with the good. And the good in this case is the very good Perry Swenson.

Swenson, along with (left to right) Rymer, Josh Kelley and Mark Bryan, is part of the cast of the Golf Channel series, "Road Trip: Myrtle Beach." The show airs Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. (ET). The first four shows are complete, and eight more will be filmed in April.

Perry got onto the series through an audition for "The Big Break." After meeting Perry, Golf Channel producers felt she'd be a perfect fit for "Road Trip" because of her musical background (castmates Kelley and Bryan are rock musicians). "I have been singing and playing the piano ever since I was little," Perry told me, adding that she's even performed at a few pro-am parties during Futures Tour tournament weeks.

The "Road Trip" quartet will play as a foursome this year in the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Pro-Am, with Swenson one of the few females in the field (two others: Annika Sorenstam and Laura Davies). (And it should be noted that Bryan is a member of Hootie and the Blowfish.)

Here's a fun fact about Perry: She is believed to be the only female golfer ever to make a hole-in-one at Augusta National. Yep, it's true. And it's also true that Perry recently hooked up with our friends at Play Golf Designs. And one final note: Perry's golf plans for 2008 are to play a full season on the Futures Tour.

Now, to make up for Charlie Rymer's appearance here, we'll run another photo of the lovely Perry, complete with some good old-fashioned redeye:

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.
