Mindy Kim

mindy kim picturesThere is a great crop of rookies on the LPGA Tour in 2009, and one of those rookies is Mindy Kim. Mindy is one of my favorite young players, not just because I think she has a great future, but because she is such a nice, friendly person. And she rocks that business look!

Mindy makes her LPGA Tour rookie season debut this week in Hawaii at the SBS Open. She's only 19 years old and just two years removed from being named an American Junior Golf Association All-American (which happened at the end of the 2006 season).

Mindy turned pro at age 17 and played 12 tournaments on the 2007 Futures Tour, recording one Top 10 finish. But in 2008 she was broke out big-time. Last year, Mindy won three times on the Futures Tour, had eight other Top 10s, and was second on the money list. If it wasn't for the phenomenal year Vicky Hurst had, everyone would be focused on Mindy's season.

But that's OK. Now wee can focus on Mindy's LPGA seasons for years to come.

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." 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.
