Congratulations to Marianne Skarpnord, who earned her first career win on the Ladies European Tour on Sunday at the Deutsche Bank Ladies Open.

Skarpnord, from Norway, is in her fifth season with LET status, and she's had success before, but no wins until now. Skarpnord had seven Top 10 finishes on the LET in 2008, including a runner-up at the Ladies Irish Open. She finished 16th on the LET money last year and with the win at the Deutsche Bank moves into first on the 2009 money list.

In 2007 Skarpnord played mostly on the Telia Tour, winning three times and leading that LET-feeder tour in money.

Marianne's Web site is available in both Norwegian and English and includes her blog.

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.
