Golf Punk's Top 18 Swingin' Sirens

The UK magazine Golf Punk has always presented golf with an attitude. That includes its regular Swingin' Sirens feature, which takes a look at golf babes (not just pro golfers, but also celebrities). Golf Punk readers recently voted on their faves, and the result is a countdown in the current issues of the Top 18 Swingin's Sirens. You can view it here . We won't spoil the suspense for you. But here are a couple screen grabs of pages that include photos we haven't seen before of Ladies European Tour golfer Melissa Reid and (below) Golf Channel presenter Win McMurry.

Amy Yang Gets 1st LPGA Win

Amy Yang is a winner on the LPGA Tour, although she won in her home country of Korea to make it happen. Yang claimed the 2013 LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship, beating Hee Kyung Seo in a playoff. As noted, it's Amy's first LPGA victory, but she had important wins before. When she was still an amateur, and only 16 years old, Amy won the LET's ANZ Ladies Masters. (Her family moved from Korea to Australia when Amy was 15, and she now lives in Florida.) She won twice more on the Ladies European Tour in 2008, at the Ladies German Open and the Scandinavian TPC hosted by Annika. And Amy won on the KLPGA in 2011. Along the way, Yang had many good finishes on the LPGA, including a playoff loss to Yani Tseng and multiple Top 5 finishes in majors. And she's finished inside the Top 15 on the LPGA money list three straight years, 2010-12. So that first win was only a matter of time. Now that time is here.

Lexi Wins in Malaysia

Lexi Thompson had to go all the way to Malaysia, but you can bet it was worth it for the young phenom. Still not 19 years old, Thompson won the 2013 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia by four shots. It's her second career LPGA victory, her third overall (counting one LET win), and her first since 2011. Here's a photo Lexi posted a while back on Twitter (follow her @Lexi): More Lexi Thompson pics
