Se Ri Pak

Perhaps the most surprising thing I've seen in the lead-up to the 2008 U.S. Women's Open is that Se Ri Pak is in the second group off on Thursday morning, playing with Jill McGill and Kelli Kuehne. Way to disrespect one of the greats of the game, USGA!

The lovely and talented Se Ri deserves better. And "talented" is a bit of an understatement, isn't it? She's a U.S. Open champion, a five-time major winner, a Hall of Famer, one of the all-time greats. And the fact that Se Ri is one of the nicest people out there, well, that shouldn't be overlooked, either.

And I mean no disrespect to McGill or Kuehne, whom I admire as fine players, fine professionals and fine people. But between them they have only a handful of wins, no majors. Se Ri has been struggling this year, and it's as if, with this grouping, the USGA is saying, "here, let's put her with two other players who have no chance of winning."

Shame on you, USGA. Se Ri Pak deserves better.

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.
