Ryann O'Toole

ryann o toole golfer

Ryann O'Toole is getting a lot of searches on Golf Babes today because she's looking good in the first two rounds of the 2011 U.S. Women's Open.

O'Toole is a rookie on the LPGA Tour in 2011, and has been very solid in four starts so far. She's also been great in a couple starts on the Futures Tour this year.

Here's a tournament you probably didn't know O'Toole had won: the 2011 Australian Short Course Championship. It was played on a 4,000-yard par-60 layout.

Something curious about Ryann's career development: She wasn't an automatic starter on her UCLA golf team. She's clearly a very talented player, so you'd think she would have been great at the collegiate level. If you're not familiar with college golf, schools take five players to tournaments, and the low four scores count. O'Toole was passed over by her coach in quite a few events. Oops!

But Ryann can take solace in the fact that the same thing happened to Fuzzy Zoeller when he was at the NCAA powerhouse University of Houston back in the early to mid-1970s. And Zoeller was only on his way to a Hall of Fame career in the pro ranks until back injuries derailed him (not before he won a couple majors).

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.
