Mindy Kim

Mindy Kim is playing the Futures Tour this season, but based on her play there she'll be a fully exempt member of the LPGA in 2009. That's because, with four tournaments remaining on the Futures Tour schedule, Mindy is second on the money list, nearly $30,000 ahead of the third-place golfer. She's guaranteed to finish in the Top 5 on the money list, thus earning her LPGA Tour card for next year.

Mindy, who turned 19 a month ago, is a native of Seoul now living in California. She turned pro in 2007, making 10 of 12 cuts on the Futures Tour.

This year has been a breakout season for Mindy, who has three Futures Tour victories - including at the Falls Auto Group Classic, completed Aug. 10 (she's holding the trophy above). She has nine Top 10 finishes in 14 starts, ranks second on the money list and second in scoring average.

In an interview posted on the Futures Tour Web site, this exchange took place:

Q: You must have really missed your parents when you won your first tournament as a pro this year in Kansas.

Kim: Yeah, I called my sister and she asked me if I made a lot of money. I said, "Not a lot, but I can get you a puppy."

Inquiring minds want to know: Mindy, have you ponied up a puppy for your sister yet?

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.
