Big Break Ireland: Mallory Blackwelder

mallory blackwelder big break ireland

On Tuesday, Sept. 20, Big Break Ireland premieres on the Golf Channel. The cast includes six men and six women, and at Golf Babes we don't care about the dudes. So over the next couple days we'll be posting about the six women in the cast.

And we start with Mallory Blackwelder, because she is the best-known of the six heading into the show (we've written about her before).

Mallory is coming off a season in which she started 12 times on the Futures Tour and posted three Top 10 finishes - including a best showing of second place at the South Shore Championship in early July. She finished 27th on the Futures Tour money list.

A year earlier, in 2010, Blackwelder held non-exempt status on the LPGA Tour and fully exempt status on the Ladies European Tour. She got into 11 LET tournaments, made seven cuts and had four Top 30 finishes.

She turned pro in 2009 after playing collegiately at the University of Kentucky.

Mallory comes from a golf family. Her mother is longtime LPGA member Myra Blackwelder, and her father is longtime LPGA caddie Worth Blackwelder.

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. 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.

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.
