Maha Haddioui

Maha Haddioui was the winner of one of the two Ladies European Tour qualifying tournament (Q-School) pre-qualifiers, which gets her into the Q-School finals. She's from Morocco.

She turned pro in 2010, and in 2011 finished 25th at the Lalla Meryem Cup played in Morocco. In fact, it was played at her home course, Golf du Soleil in Agadir. And in playing that event, Maha achieved a first: She became the first Arab woman to play as a professional golfer in an event on one of the major world tours.

Maha also made the cut at the 2011 Ladies German Open on the LET but, alas, failed to get through Q-School for the 2012 season. So she's back, winning the pre-qualifier, and setting her sights on 2013 membership.

Before turning pro Haddioui played collegiately at Lynn University in Florida. There she was a Division II All-America selection four straight years, the conference Women's Golfer of the Year, and a four-time scholastic All-American.

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.
