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.

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.
