Jenny Suh

jenny suh picturesCongratulations to Jenny Suh, who won the Duramed Futures Tour Alliance Bank Golf Classic in a playoff last week. It's the first Futures Tour win for Jenny, and moved her from 56th all the way to 15th on the tour's money list. The Top 10 at the end of the year earn status on the LPGA for 2010, and there are four tournaments left in the Futures season.

Jenny is in her second season on the Futures Tour. In her rookie year of 2008, she finished 20th on the money list, and was also in the Top 20 in scoring average. Her best finish in '08 was fourth.

Suh, a Virginia native, turned pro in 2007 following a stellar amateur career. She split her college career between Furman University and the University of Alabama, posting a combined 26 Top 10 finishes and five victories.

The year 2006 was a particularly good one for Jenny. She earned first-team All-America honors for Alabama ("A big 'Roll Tide Roll!'," she replied when I asked if there was anything she wanted me to be sure to include in this post*), won the prestigious North and South Amateur Championship, and played for Team USA in the Curtis Cup.

Jenny's coach is Kirk Lucas, who teaches out of Warrenton, Va. Do a YouTube search for "Jenny Suh" and you'll find several videos of Jenny and Kirk demonstrating different aspects of the golf swing.

(*True story: Although I've never set foot in Alabama, I portrayed Bear Bryant in a one-man show in the sixth grade. Usually, I just say the show was "off-Broadway" and leave it at that.)

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.

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.
