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.

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.
