Mallory Blackwelder

The Web site we most recently added to our sidebar links list is that of Mallory Blackwelder. Mallory, in her first LPGA Rookie Blog (video included), said that she'll be playing on the LPGA, LET and Duramed Futures Tour in 2010.

Mallory turned pro in May 2009 after a successful collegiate career at the University of Kentucky that included two victories. She also had a major amateur win at the 2007 Women's Western Amateur Championship.

Golf genes? Hers are pretty good. Her mother is Myra Blackwelder, who played the LPGA for 12 years and was Rookie of the Year in 1980; and her dad is Worth Blackwelder, a longtime LPGA caddie. He most recently caddied for Juli Inkster, but is on Mallory's bag in 2010.

Check out her Web site.

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.
