Azahara Munoz

Azahara Munoz is the classy Spaniard who made her Solheim Cup debut for Team Europe in 2011. And it was a successful debut: She played four matches, going 2-1-1, earning 2.5 points for her side. She also wound up in the anchor match after the Kerr-Stupples match was conceded due to Kerr's injury. With the Solheim Cup very tight throughout the final day of singles matches, that was a tough position for a young player. But Aza handled it expertly. And while Europe clinched the cup after Caroline Hedwall, playing one match in front of Munoz, fought back to earn a half-point, Europe would have won even without Hedwall's comeback. Because Munoz won her own match, the anchor, 1-up over Angela Stanford.

The photo above was taken during at the Evian Masters. It helps demonstrate why Munoz was voted "the most CHIC Lacoste player on the Ladies European Tour" early in 2012.

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.
