Azahara Munoz Wins Pro Debut

We've noted before that Azahara Munoz is a young golfer to watch. The 2008 NCAA champ and 2009 British Ladies Amateur champ completed an All-American (and All-Academic) career at Arizona State earlier this year. One of her teammates for a couple seasons was Anna Nordqvist.

On Sunday, the two did battle down the stretch at the LET Madrid Ladies Masters. Munoz was making her professional debut in her home country. Nordqvist is a rookie, but this year won a major and played in the Solheim Cup.

And Nordqvist threw a 63 on the board Sunday, rocketing up the leaderboard. Only to be pipped by Munoz, who shot 64.

Munoz made it through sectional qualifying for LPGA Q-School last month, and will play the Q-School finals in December.

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.
