Kristie Smith Tees Off 2013

Kristie Smith is welcoming a new season of golf with a new photoshoot. (And the photo above is reminiscent of Kristie's pose for the 2009 Australian Women of Professional Golf Calendar that benefited charity.)

Kristie has wins on the Ladies European Tour, Futures Tour and ALPG Tour so far in her young career. And those are the three tours we'll be seeing her on in 2013, starting with the ALPG.

The 2013 ALPG season tees off on Jan. 14. There are four tournaments in January, but the biggest events in the ANZ region come in February, with the Australian Ladies Masters, New Zealand Women's Open and Women's Australian Open.

The New Zealand Women's Open represents one of Kristie's biggest wins. Smith took that title in 2011, when the event was cosponsored by the LET and ALPG.

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.
