Johanna Head

Johanna Head is part of the "Wilhelmina 7" group of LPGA golfers signed by the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. She's the twin sister of "Big Break Kaanapali" golfer Samantha Head. And as I write this, she's in second place in the LET's Scandinavian TPC hosted by Annika.

Johanna turned pro in 1995, and in 1997 joined the predecessor to the LET. She won her first professional title in 1998, the Malaysian Open. She first gained non-exempt status on the LPGA in 2000, but competed mostly on the LET that year and returned to LPGA Q-School, where she again earned non-exempt status. In 2001 and 2002, she played about half the time on the LPGA, then in 2003 got in close to a full season. That was the first year Johanna had exempt status on the LPGA. A sixth place at the 2005 Canadian Women's Open is her best LPGA finish to date, but she has posted several LET wins during this time period.

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
