We've reached Day 10 of our series on the cast members of Big Break Sandals Resorts, and that brings us to Maiya Tanaka.

Maiya and another BBSR contestant - Ryann O'Toole, who will conclude our series on Day 11 - were teammates on the UCLA women's golf team. According to About.com, Tanaka was a walk-on at UCLA and earned her shot with the team beginning in 2007.

The Golf Channel wrote about Maiya, in its announcement of the cast members:

Maiya Tanaka (24, San Diego, Calif.) – A success story from The First Tee Program, Tanaka currently lives out of her car and competes on four professional golf tours (Golden State, California Players, Cactus and the Duramed FUTURES Tours). Tanaka and fellow Big Break contestant Ryann O'Toole were teammates at UCLA and are longtime friends.


Maiya is the golfer featured in this commercial for Northwestern Mutual:

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.
