Whitney Wade

Whitney Wade was this past weekend's champion on the Duramed Futures Tour, closing with a 66 to finish with a one-stroke win at the Duramed Championship. The win came on Father's Day, and with Whitney's dad as her caddie.

It's the first Futures Tour win for Whitney, who turned pro in 2007 after a college career at the University of Georgia. But Whitney first made headlines in the golf world at age 13 by winning the Kentucky State Amateur Championship in 1999, something she did the following two years, as well.

She was a member of the 2005 U.S. Junior Solheim Cup team, a four-time All-SEC selection in college, and won the 2007 Kentucky State Open and 2008 Ohio Women's Open.

And last season was Whitney's first on the Futures Tour. She made a pretty good debut, too, making the cut in all but one of her 15 events and posting a couple Top 10s. And now she's a winner on the Futures, and that victory vaulted Whitney into the Top 10 on the money list.

It wasn't Whitney's first win of 2009, however; a few weeks ago she won the Colorado Women's Open.

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.
