Daniela Holmqvist is the winner of the ALPG's Mount Broughton Classic, her first victory in Australia. Now she can be known for something other than being the golfer who got bit by a black widow spider during a round!

Dani won the Mount Broughton at 10-under par, two strokes better than runner-up Sarah Kemp.

It's been a good couple weeks for Holmqvist. She entered the ALPG event after training at the Swedish Olympic Training Camp in Dubai. There, she got to spend time with, among others, Ryder Cup player Peter Hanson.

Holmqvist wrapped up her collegiate golf career as an All-American at Cal following the 2012 season. She was a rookie in 2013 on the LET, where her best finish was a tie for 12th.

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.
