Michelle Wie's New York City Victory Lap

Michelle takes Manhattan. That's the headline for Michelle Wie's day on June 24, 2014. That's the day she hit New York City - with her U.S. Women's Open trophy in tow - and made the media rounds. The LPGA created the #WieInNYC hashtag for the day, and also posted this graphic that shows just how busy Michelle was:

Michelle Wie is the only player in women's golf who can command this kind of media attention, and that's why every fan of women's golf should be cheering for her to continue and build on and expand the tremendous success she's had on the golf course in 2014.

We scrolled through the #WieInNYC timeline and grabbed some of the images, posted below. If you want to see more - along with many great comments from Wie and others - go to Twitter and plug in that hashtag.

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.
