Joh, Mills Top Futures Tour Q-School

tiffany joh picturesCongratulations to Tiffany Joh (left), your 2009 Duramed Futures Tour Q-School champion. And to runner-up Danielle Mills (below) - Joh and Mills finished five and four strokes clear of the field, respectively.

Only the top 20 to 30 finishers received exempt status on the Futures Tour for 2010; as many as 275 players will get status of some level, but the exact numbers (and each player's status level) aren't determined until after LPGA Q-School finals next month.

The Top 20 should feel pretty good, however, and Joh and Mills are obviously exempt. Joh is playing in those LPGA Q-School finals next month, however, and if things go well there will be moving up to the big tour.

The effervescent Joh is destined for stardom - or at least minor celebrity - even if she never wins a tournament as a professional (but we'd put good money on her winning). Just check out her blog to get a sense of her ... um ... interesting take on life. Click on Tiffany's label at the bottom of this post (below the timestamp) to read more about her on Golf Babes.

The Quebecois Mills turned pro earlier this year and got into three Futures Tour tournaments, finishing 18th in one of them. She played collegiately at Elon University, where she won one tournament. She also won the 2007 Quebec Women's Match Play Provincial Championship.

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. 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.
