Day 3 of our series on the cast members of Big Break Sandals Resorts brings us to Carling Coffing.

Regular readers of Golf Babes have met Carling before; we featured her back in October 2009, when this Ohio girl was sporting her Cincinnati Reds colors.

You might also have seen Carling in one of the video segments she's done for the Duramed Futures Tour and Golf Channel Web sites. She joined the Futures Tour in 2008, played a full schedule in 2009, and at the time of this writing has played in four tournaments so far in 2010. Last year, she made 13 of 17 cuts and finished 61st on the money list. Her best finish to date on the Futures Tour is a tie for 11th.

Here's what the Golf Channel said about her in its news release announcing the Big Break Sandals Resorts contestants:

Carling Coffing (24, Middletown, Ohio) – A sweet, Midwestern young lady on the surface, Coffing is a tough competitor who has overcome enormous odds to achieve her dream to be a professional golfer. Coffing was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at age 5, and after years of giving herself dozens of shots every day, she switched to a diabetic insulin pump in 2008, which is connected to her 24 hours a day. Coffing now competes full-time on the Duramed FUTURES Tour.

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.
