Caroline Masson

Caroline Masson was tied for third place following the first round of the 2011 Women's British Open. Who is she? She's pretty well-known in Europe, but not yet known to a lot of American golf fans.

Masson is a 22-year-old German who was the No. 1-ranked amateur golfer in Europe for a time. As an amateur, she won seven German national championships along with the 2008 Spanish Ladies Open Amateur. She played on two Junior Solheim Cup teams and played for the continental side in the 2009 Vagliano Trophy.

Caroline also played golf at Oklahoma State University for two seasons, leaving in 2009. She entered the LET Q-School later that year, and won it.

Her rookie year as a pro was 2010, when Masson posted four Top 10 finishes on the LET with a best showing of third at the Women's French Open. So far in 2011, Caroline has finished in the Top 11 in each of her last five starts on the LET going into the WBO. Prior to that streak, she had a runner-up finish at the Lalla Meryem Cup and helped Germany to a runner-up finish at the European Nations Cup. So while she's still looking for that first pro victory, Caroline is a player who appears due to win soon.

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.
