bubba watson wifeCongratulations to Bubba Watson for his great win at the 2011 Farmers Insurance Open. But, sorry Bubba, this ain't Golf Dudes. It's Golf Babes. So we celebrate by featuring Angie Watson, Bubba's lovely wife.

Angie - maiden name Angie Ball - is originally from Canada, and she and Bubba met at the University of Georgia. Angie played for the Lady Bulldogs basketball team - she's 6-foot-4 - as a forward and center.

Angie's basketball career was always plagued by injuries, which prevented her from being drafted by the WNBA. But after playing professionally in Europe for a year, she did sign with the WNBA's Charlotte Sting. Alas, injuries again derailed her hoops aspirations, and Angie was finally forced to retire from basketball. She stayed involved by running camps, however.

Angie and Bubba were married in 2004, and Angie served as Bubba's manager until a couple years ago.

The couple received a major health scare last year when Angie was originally diagnosed with a possible tumor on her pituitary gland. It turned out not to be a tumor, thank goodness, and the moral of that story is to never be afraid to seek out second opinions in matters of health.

So congrats again to Angie and Bubba. The top image is of Angie Watson at this year's Bob Hope Classic. She's a very good golfer, too.

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
