Brittany Johnston claimed her first career win on the Futures Tour at the ING New England Golf Classic on Sunday, July 17. She did it by firing a 65 in the final round, beating Alison Walshe by one stroke and Kathleen Ekey - Johnston's former high school teammate - by two strokes.

In a "Quick 18" Q&A on the Futures Tour website there is this exchange:

14. If you could impact women's golf, what would you want your legacy to be?

Johnston is originally from Ohio. She played college golf at Northwestern, posting 15 Top 10 finishes in NCAA play. She graduated from Northwestern in 2008 with a degreen in political science.

That's the same year Johnston turned pro, and 2011 is her first full season on the Futures Tour. Her first win comes just a couple weeks after she played in the U.S. Women's Open, which she got into through qualifying.

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.
