Isabelle Beisiegel

Isabelle Beisiegel

History was made on May 27, 2011, in British Columbia, when Isabelle Beisiegel made it through Q-School to earn non-exempt status on the Canadian Tour. A woman golfer now has status on a "men's tour." This is the first time that's happened.

Congrats to Beisiegel, who has had years of frustration trying to player her way into men's tournaments, while also (sorry to be blunt) failing to make a mark in women's golf. She's also been through some health issues that interrupted her career. She perservered, kept fighting, and now she's accomplished something that had never been done before. Good job, Izzy!

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.

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.
