Blair O'Neal is a professional golfer and a professional model. She's done some acting. She's played some football. What? Football? Yep, Blair is the quarterback on the Phoenix Scorch, a team in the Lingerie Football League.

Blair doesn't play much competitive golf anymore, focusing mostly on leading clinics and taking part in corporate and charity tournaments (you can book her through Play Golf Designs).

Her transition away from the life of a touring pro to more of a focus on a modeling career began with an injury in 2005. Her Golf Channel bio states:

Her 2005 season ended abruptly after breaking her foot walking down stairs. Not only did the injury cost her part of the season on the Duramed Futures Tour, but she missed competing in the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament. "I really believe everything happens for a reason, and I stayed positive. I'm usually a very positive player, by nature," she said about the events that turned her focus to modeling.

An athletic 5-foot-10 frame has been an equal asset in both career endeavors. However, determination and focus are her best characteristics. "I get into what I call 'Blair Golf' when I'm in my own bubble," said O'Neal, who first set the goal of playing on the LPGA Tour when she was age 11. "I'm just into my own world and focus on myself and my game. I am confident and people can see that."

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.
