Kelly Rose Kronen

kelly rose kronenKelly Rose Kronen will be a rookie on the Futures Tour this year. Kelly was introduced to the game by her father, and at age 12 dedicated herself to it fully. She was a top player in high school - at one point ranked the No. 1 golfer in New England - and went on to Barry University in Miami. In her freshman year, her father was diagnosed with cancer, and after her sophomore year Kronen made the decision to leave school and go back home to be with Dad. Her father has undergone treatment and is doing well today, but Kelly decided that returning to school wasn't what she wanted to do. Instead, she turned pro. And 2008 will be her first season as professional. She can play a full schedule on the Futures Tour, but like many young female professionals, whether she actually does depends in large part on finding sponsors to help finance the travel and tournament expenses.

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.
