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.

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.
