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.

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.
