Vicky Hurst

vicky hurst

Vicky Hurst is a member of the 2011 USA Solheim Cup team after receiving a captain's pick following the Safeway Classic. Hurst tied for fifth in that Safeway Classic, which was her second-best LPGA finish to date (she was runner-up at the 2010 Hana Bank Championship).

Hurst was the 2007 AJGA Player of the Year as a junior, and turned pro in 2008. She dominated the Futures Tour that year, winning five times, to earn her LPGA card for 2009. She's been a solid performer since, still at the tender age of 21.

Hurst finished 11th in the US Solheim Cup points standings, one spot out of an automatic selection. So it was no surprise when Captain Rosie Jones asked Hurst to join the team.

In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
