Big Break Ireland: Kelly Jacques

kelly jacques big break ireland

Kelly Jacques has the least professional experience among the women on Big Break Ireland - since turning pro in 2008 she's played in only seven LPGA Futures Tour events. That's because after college she temporarily gave up competitive golf. What brought her back? According to her bio on the Golf Channel website, after time spent working at, well, work (as in jobs), she started thinking of golf again.

So in 2011, Jacques got into five Futures Tour tournaments and the results were promising if inconclusive: three cuts made.

As am amateur, Kelly was the Colorado state high school champion twice, and was twice named the Colorado Golfer of the Year. She was a two-time all-conference selection in college, recording 10 Top 10 finishes during her time at the University of Oklahoma.

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.
