Stacy Lewis

Here's a golfer we'll be seeing a lot of in years to come. Stacy Lewis will be part of a stellar 2009 class of rookies on the LPGA Tour after winning the tour's Final Qualifying Tournament by three strokes.

Stacy completed her collegiate career at the University of Arkansas earlier in 2008, a career capped off by her inclusion on the American Curtis Cup team. While at Arkansas, she won the 2007 NCAA Championship, posted double-digit wins in other tournaments, and was a multiple All-American selection. Pretty amazing considering that she suffered from scoliosis as a child and missed her freshman season recovering from spinal fusion surgery.

Lewis turned pro in mid-2008, and several weeks later finished third at the U.S. Women's Open. It was her second Top 5 finish in a major; in 2007, still an amateur, she finished fifth at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

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.
