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.

In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

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.
