One of the most promising rookies on the Duramed Futures Tour in 2010 is Caroline Westrup. Westrup, a native of Sweden, has played only four DFT events thus far in her young professional career, having turned pro in 2009 after a stellar collegiate career.

She played for Florida State in college, and the FSU media guide makes clear how good Caroline was as a college golfer. Her FSU bio begins thusly: "The greatest golfer in school history ..."

Westrup won five tournaments while at FSU, was an All-America selection four straight years (twice on the first team), and also earned academic all-conference honors four straight years.

Along the way, Caroline also played for the Swedish national team, winning individual medalist honors at the 2006 World Amateur Championships. Oh, and she also earned her degree in sports management.

She has a younger sister, Emelie, who currently plays golf on the Arkansas-Little Rock team. Learn more about Caroline at her Web site, carolinewestrup.com.

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.
