halle berry golfHalle Berry, who took up the game of golf not too long ago herself, has teamed up with the Callaway Golf Foundation to serve as "ambassador" in the fight against ovarian cancer. The news release states:

Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry has joined forces with the Callaway Golf Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation as the 2008 ambassador for the Callaway Golf Foundation Women’s Cancer Initiative. Berry will be featured in an extensive print public service announcement campaign this summer aimed at raising awareness and funds to help find a cure for ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer afflicts more than 22,000 women in the United States each year and claims the lives of more than 15,000. "As a daughter and a new mother, I was shocked to learn the facts about ovarian cancer," said Berry. "That’s why I’ve teamed with the Callaway Golf Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to educate women about taking care of their health."

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.
