Aussie Calendar: Sunny Park

Sunny Park is Miss July, so to speak, in the 2009 Australian Women of Professional Golf Calendar, which features Australian golfers who play on the ALPG.

Sunny was born in Korea but moved with her family to Australia at a very young age. She didn't take up golf until age 14, but quickly became one of Oz's top juniors. Her amateur career culminated in 2007 when she won the Australian Ladies Amateur Championship.

Sunny turned pro later that year and played her first tour events on the ALPG, starting fast: a tie for fifth at the Angostura Castle Hill Pro-Am and again at the St. Michaels ALPG Classic; followed by her first professional victory at the Peugeot Kangaroo Valley ALPG Classic.

Coming up, Sunny will be playing in the Futures Tour Qualifying Tournament Nov. 4-7.

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.
