Mari Suursalu

Mari Suursalu golfer from Estonia

The Ladies European Tour recently spotlighted Mari Suursalu, who the LET notes is the first - and so far only - female professional golfer from Estonia.

Suursalu has yet to appear in any LET event, but does play in tournaments on the LET's developmental tour, the LET Access Series. For the last three year, Suursalu's primary golf home has been the Nordea Tour.

The article, posted on the LETAS website, notes:

There are more than a million visitors to Estonia every year and it is only a four hour drive from one side of the country to the other. Winters are cold, but the welcome is said to be warm.

There are only 2000 golfers and eight golf courses in Estonia, so Mari is a rare talent. She says that the LETAS is the ideal tour for her to compete against other international players.

"I've won many Estonian titles but the competition there cannot really compare," she says.

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.
