Say hello to the women of Highway 18 (from left to right): Ashleigh Korzack, Ashley Davis, Keri Murphy, Jameica Duncombe and Charlotte Campbell.

What is Highway 18? It's the newest "reality golf" series from the Golf Channel, and it premieres on July 22. It will air for 10 episodes in the 10 p.m. (ET) time slot on Tuesday nights.

Think of it as "The Amazing Race" for golfers. The Golf Channel explains "the contending teams ... will race down Florida's highways, fairways and byways spanning more than 1,000 miles over 10 weekly episodes. The contestants will compete in challenges both on and off the course that will demand cooperation and ingenuity in order to survive elimination."

As for each episode's format:

Each episode of Highway 18 will feature three sets of golf challenges: a Start Challenge, a Road Challenge and a Clubhouse Challenge. Murphy will kickoff each episode by revealing the Start Challenges to the contestants, ranging from tests of skill or trivia on golf courses, beaches or a swamp.

Road Challenges can comprise either quick stops – such as target practice at a highway driving range – or well-known, but non-traditional settings, including Daytona International Speedway, Florida Field and Donald Trump’s ultra-exclusive Mar-a-Largo Club.

Clubhouse Challenges will take place at various golf destinations, ranging from famous championship venues – including TPC Sawgrass, Innisbrook and Trump International Golf Club – to municipal facilities off the beaten path. Teams will be eliminated if they finish last in two clubhouse challenges (double elimination).

Keri Murphy is familiar to Golf Babes readers as the video host on The other women pictured above are the four female contestants on the series. (There are guy contestants, too, but hey, this ain't Golf Dudes!).

We'll be featuring each of these contestants and telling you more about them as the premiere date draws closer. For now, watch the video trailer.

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.
