Beatriz Recari

 
It was LPGA Tour win No. 2 for Beatriz Recari on Sunday at the Kia Classic - but not before a playoff against I.K. Kim. Recari and Kim tied after 72 holes at 9-under 279, but then Bea won it on the second playoff hole with a long birdie putt.

Recari's previous LPGA victory was at the 2010 CVS Pharmacy LPGA Challenge, and she also won in 2009 on the Ladies European Tour. But don't let that 3-year gap in wins fool you: Recari is better now than she was in 2010. She's improved her scoring average every year, and went into the Kia 12th in LPGA scoring so far in 2013. She's also been very solid on the money list, finishing 2012 at No. 39. Entering the Kia, Bea was No. 6 in LPGA money in 2013. That's because she opened the season with fourth- and third-place showings in the first two events.

And now, of course, she has added a victory.

The win also puts Recari squarely in the mix for a spot on the European Solheim Cup team. So it was a pretty good Sunday for Beatriz.

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
