Chelsea Bach

This is the first time we've featured Chelsea Bach on Golf Babes. Her story is an interesting one, because - especially in women's golf, where the paychecks are much smaller than on men's pro golf tours - sometimes a golfer's route to the tour life is a circuitous one.

After playing many sports while growing up in a small town in Illinois, Chelsea turned her focus to golf in time to win the 2002 Illinois Girls Junior State Championship. A four-year collegiate career followed, three seasons at Illinois State and one at Eastern Illinois.

But Chelsea didn't immediately pursue the life of a tour golfer. Instead, she detoured into the life of a club and teaching professional. She enrolled in the PGA Golf Management University Program and began pursuing her Class A certification to become a golf instructor.

That entailed a move to Arizona. And you know what they have in Arizona? Lots of great golf courses and good weather. Pro tour events. And the Cactus Tour.

She worked in the golf industry for a couple years, but her love for playing competitively kept coming back.

In 2011, Bach entered LPGA Q-School and earned status on the Futures Tour, where she made her debut earlier this year.

So now Chelsea is back pursuing the life of a tour professional as a career. In 2012, she's played on the Women's Canadian Tour, Cactus Tour and Symetra Tour (Futures Tour).

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.

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.
