Lara Baldesarra

Lara Baldesarra

On the day I'm writing this, Lara Baldesarra is probably pretty much unknown to golf fans. But that will change just a few days later - on Jan. 26, to be exact - when Baldesarra joins the Golf Channel to host Grey Goose 19th Hole. The announcement hasn't been made yet by Golf Channel, but Grey Goose included the news in a recent press release, and Lara confirmed it on her Facebook and Twitter pages.

And Lara added, "So exciting to change gears and move to my other passion in life - golf!"

Her other passion? She phrased it that way because Baldesarra has spent the previous few years broadcasting soccer. She spent a year as one of the hosts of the Fox Soccer Report on the Fox Soccer network.

Baldesarra is Canadian and studied at universities in Canada, Mexico and France along the way to her degree in Broadcast Journalism. She then joined the Canadian sports network TSN prior to her time at Fox Soccer. On Grey Goose 19th Hole, Baldesarra will host new episodes on Thursdays and Fridays on Golf Channel.

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.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. 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.
