Brooke Pancake

brooke pancake

Her name is Brooke Pancake, and yes, that surname leads to some great nicknames. Golfweek writer Beth Ann Baldry tweeted that Pancake's teammates at the University of Alabama call her "Cakes," "IHOP," and "Waffles." And that of those three, Brooke prefers "Cakes."

You can call her "Hot Cakes" after her great performance at the 2011 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. Pancake reached the semifinals before bowing out to defending champ Danielle Kang, 1-down.

Pancake won the Tar Heel Invitational during the 2010-11 NCAA women's golf season for Alabama, where she also maintains a 4.13 grade point average. (I'm proud to note that my own GPA was at least 50-percent of that!) She's an All-American on the course, and an NGCA Scholar Athlete off it.

Prior to college, Pancake dominated high school golf in Tennessee, winning the state championship four straight times. According to the USGA, she's already a member of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.

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.
