For Day 2 of our series on the women of Big Break Sandals Resorts, we feature Taryn Durham.

Durham is in her first full season of competition on the Duramed Futures Tour in 2010. In four starts as of this writing, she has a best finish of 29th and a scoring average of 74.

Durham turned pro in 2008 following completion of her collegiate career at Middle Tennessee State University. At MTSU, she won seven tournaments, including the 2006 Sun Belt conference championship. She was a four-time all-conference selection, and won the 2005 Kentucky State Amateur Championship.

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


Taryn Durham (24, Glasgow, Ky.) – The quintessential All-American sweetheart, Durham has the looks, the southern charm and southern accent. While Durham’s resume stacks up with her fellow competitors, she has an edge over her fellow competitors in that she is the only contestant who has competed in a Major Championship (2007 U.S. Women’s Open).

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.
