Rachel Connor

Who holds the all-time 18-hole scoring record on the Duramed Futures Tour? After Thursday, it's 19-year-old Rachel Connor. Rachel - a k a "Chill" - is from England (sorry about the footie, luv - and I also apologize for bringing that up) and is in her rookie season on the Futures Tour.

In the first round of Tate & Lyle Players Championship, Connor shot 29-32. That adds up to 61. And it's the first 61 ever posted in a DFT tournament. The previous tour record was 62, recorded by Erica Blasberg and Sue Ginter-Brooker. Connor's 29 over the front nine also tied the tour record for nine holes. Others shooting 29 over nine on the DFT include Lorena Ochoa, Nicole Castrale, Seon-Hwa Lee and Eunjung Yi. Pretty good company.

In seven previous starts in this, her rookie season, Connor's best finish is a tie for 15th. Clearly, she has the scoring ability to post some high finishes over the remainder of the season.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

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.
