How Are Ya? Hawaii-Wie

Michelle Wie is doing just fine, thanks. Which is kind of remarkable when you stop to recall how much crap she got (and sometimes still gets) from haters for things she did as a teenager. When, in reality, the things she was doing as a teenager were, for the most part, the kinds of things that would earn most people praise for precociousness.

It's also easy to forget that the problems with her game Wie encountered after those years of 2003-6, when she did many things that nobody had ever done before, were brought on by injuries.

All that is past, and just when you might think she's going to be written off Wie comes back with her first victory since 2010. It happened at the Lotte Championship in her home state of Hawaii. She did it by hitting green after green, and by putting solidly. Not great, but good. And "not terrible" is really all you have to be as a putter when you are hitting greens like Wie was in the Lotte (like she has been all year).

Can she keep it up? I sure hope so.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." 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.
