Melanie Collins of 'Big Break Florida'

Melanie Collins is the co-host of Big Break Florida, but who is she? She's a newcomer to the Golf Channel, but not to golf broadcasting.

On Collins' Twitter page, she intros herself this way: "Yahoo Sports Broadcaster, co-host of Big Break on Golf Channel, contributor to CSN California, NBCSN & The Insider on CBS."

One her website, we see a fuller picture of Collins' broadcasting history.

Collins' main gig currently is working for Yahoo! Sports, and in that role she reports from some of the highest-profile events in sports, including the Super Bowl. Previously, her website states, "... she covered the NBA for NBA-TV and Turner Sports, College Football and Basketball for the Big Ten Network and Total College Sports, as well as Major League Baseball for MLB.com. She's hosted segments on PGA.com, PGATour.com and Nascar.com."

Collins also works in entertainment reporting, including Yahoo's own OMG! Insider franchise. She's worked for E! News Now and reported from the red carpet in Hollywood.

And she describes herself as an avid golfer.

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.
