Elina Nummenpaa will be playing on the Ladies European Tour in 2013 after making it through the final-stage of LET Q-School. Nummenpaa was won of the Top 30 finishers at Q-School, earning her card for next season.

Nummenpaa is a 29-year-old from Turku, Finland. She honed her skills at Nokia River Golf Club (where she even served as caddie master for four years), and as an exchange student in California during high school.

In 2012, Elina split her time between the Nordea Tour and the LET Access Series. On the LETAS, it was feast or famine for Nummenpaa in 2012: She had six missed cuts, but in those tournaments in which she survived the cut, Elina finished in the Top 10 every time. Her best showing was a tie for fourth at the Crete Ladies Open.

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.
