Mi Hyang Lee Nets Win in New Zealand

Congratulations to Mi Hyang Lee on winning the New Zealand Open, where Lee outran home favorite Lydia Ko to the finish line.

Mi Hyang shot a course-record 63 in the final round to beat Ko by one shot. Lee is a 20-year-old described as "bubbly" in this account of her victory. Her rookie year on the LPGA was 2012. (The New Zealand Open is a Ladies European Tour event.)

In 2013, Lee made 10 cuts in 17 starts on the LPGA (keep in mind she was only 19 when the 2013 season began). That included a round of 64 at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, her previous best tournament round as a pro. She also was seventh overall on the LPGA Tour in eagles last year.

Lee's win is being called, in some places, her first professional victory. But that is not the case: She won a Symetra Tour tournament in 2012, when she finished the Symetra season sixth on the money list.

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.

Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st.
