We conclude our series on "Big Break Prince Edward Island" contestants with Kim Kouwabunpat. Remember, the series premieres tonight (Monday, April 20) on the Golf Channel, with six women and six men competing for a $100,000 prize.

Kim is very focused, very hard-working, and very smart (she's a Stanford grad). Qualities that make us willing to forgive the fact that she is a Journey fan.

Her Golf Channel bio includes this:

Money, though, is not the sole object of her desire. Kouwabunpat is cheesy in a good-hearted fashion. She’s the type who gives an "I love you" speech when reunited with friends. She is caring enough to start Dream Chasers, a concept that embodies her life philosophy and encourages kids to find their passion and make a living of it. "My goal to reach the LPGA is more than just wanting to compete against the best. I not only want to give something back to everybody who has helped me, but to society as well,” she explains. "I want to inspire young ones to chase after their dreams no matter what the limitations may be. Anything is possible if you have a lot of heart, dedication, focus, and perseverance."

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.
