Big Break Ireland: Nicole Smith

nicole smith big break ireland

And we've come to the end of ours series on the women of Big Break Ireland. We wrap up with Nicole Smith.

First, Smith's degree from the University of Tennessee is in Perspectives in Human Relations & Culture. I have no idea what that means. Which helps explain why I hold no degrees of my own.

Nicole has spent the past two years - 2010 and 2011 - playing full-time on the Futures Tour, and she's built a pretty good record. In 2010 her best finish was fifth and she finished 40th on money list. In 2011, her best finish was second and she finished 32nd on the money list.

Smith's career has been delayed a bit by injuries suffered in high school in college. But she also managed, in her amateur days, to win the prestigious Kathy Whitworth Invitational and record Top 15 finishes 16 times in college.

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.
