Jennifer Kirby

Not many golfers get to say they won their very first tournament playing as a professional. But now, Jennifer Kirby can.

The Canadian golfer won the CN Canadian Women's Tour Quebec tournament on June 12, her first event as a professional golfer. Kirby turned pro following the completion of her collegiate career at the University of Alabama.

The 22-year-old put herself on the map back in 2009, when she won six amateur tournaments in Canada. Those titles included the Ontario Amateur, Canadian Junior Amateur and Canadian Amateur championships.

Kirby played four years at Alabama, earning SEC Freshman of the Year honors in 2010. She was a three-time all-conference selection and an All-America choice in 2012. Kirby won one NCAA tournament and posted 12 Top 10s, and was a key part of the Alabama team that won the NCAA championship in 2012.

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.
