Mariajo Uribe

Some of you might better recognize Mariajo Uribe as Maria Jose Uribe, her full name and the one she used when she first started drawing attention from the golf world. But in the last year Mariajo started going by, well, Mariajo.

No matter what you call her, you have to call her a golfer with tremendous potential. A native of Colombia, Mariajo attended college at UCLA. But before her college career even got started, she won the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship in 2007, at age 17, defeating Amanda Blumenherst in the finals.

She made another big splash by finishing in the Top 10 at the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. After two All-America seasons at UCLA, Mariajo left college and turned pro prior to the 2009 U.S. Women's Open.

And this week, she finished inside the Top 20 at LPGA Q-School finals, earning her LPGA tour card for 2010. No doubt Mariajo will be a very popular player with fans - she's quite demonstrative when she plays, showing a lot of emotion and passion. She's a lot of fun to watch.

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.
