Random fact about Bernie Luse: Her dad calls her "Monkey."

Bernadette is a cast member on "Big Break X: Michigan," which premiered on the Golf Channel last night (Oct. 7). Despite not picking up the game until age 15, she got good enough fast enough to win the Florida girls high school state championship. She went on to play collegiately at Mississippi, graduating in 2003 after majoring in psychology (which probably helps her deal with the fact that her dad calls her "Monkey").

After turning pro in 2003, Bernie won a tournament on the Next Generation Women's Tour and then played the Futures Tour in 2004. She made it through Q-School later that year and was a rookie on the LPGA Tour in 2005. Luse was the first player ever from Ole Miss to earn LPGA membership.

She had non-exempt status on the LPGA in 2006 and then, the Golf Channel says, her sponsorship money ran dry. Now, competing in "The Big Break," Bernie is looking to jump-start her pro career again.

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.
