We'll tee off our series on the cast of Big Break Sandals Resorts with Elena Robles, a native Californian and part-time model.

Elena turned pro in 2007 and played her first tournament on the Duramed Futures Tour this year. She's had some high finishes in state tournaments (fifth at 2008 Colorado Women's Open, second at 2008 Washington State Women's Open) and has won on the California Players Tour.

She has a degree in Criminal Justice from Ferris State University, where she played collegiate golf. Elena won five tournaments as a collegian, was the conference Player of the Year in 2006, and a two-time NCAA Division II All-America selection.

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

Elena Robles (26, Redondo Beach, Calif.) – A fierce competitor who works numerous odd jobs to make ends meet (substitute teaching, modeling and serving as an extra in television and film), Robles has a history of having a fiery temper on the course. After finding faith and re-dedicating herself to golf in 2009, Robles believes her goal to compete on the LPGA Tour is within reach.

The next season of The Big Break premieres on June 21.

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.
