Elena Kurokawa

Elena Kurokawa is a native of Tokyo now living in California. She played college golf for UNLV, where she had 12 Top 10 finishes, was named to the all-conference team twice (2005-06) and was the Mountain West Player of the Year in 2005. And where she also majored in psychology, something that should come in handy for any golfer.

Elena turned pro in 2006 and played the Futures Tour in 2007 and 2008. She's also part of the Play Golf Designs team that we write about from time to time here at Golf Babes. Check 'em out, you might even be able to schedule a match with Elena!

Oh, and an inside source tells me that she's koo-koo for Camilo.

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.
