Does this image of Shayna Miyajima, from her Play Golf Designs portfolio, give away her home state? Any guesses? Posing on a surfboard, with a flower in her hair. Yep, Shayna's from Hawaii.

Shayna went on to play collegiately at San Diego State University. She turned pro in 2005, and has played on the Futures Tour the past three seasons.
