Annabel Dimmock

Annabel Dimmock was recently featured in a fashion shoot by Lady Golfer Magazine (Twitter: @LadyGolferMag), the only monthly magazine in the UK devoted to women's golf. (Which puts the UK one-up on the USA, sad to say.)

She was asked in that feature to name a bad golfing habit she hates, and replied, "I don't like it when people fidget over the ball and you never think they're going to hit the shot." Great to see young golfers who appreciate speedy play.

And Annabel is young: She was, at age 17, the youngest member of the Great Britain & Ireland team in the 2014 Curtis Cup in early June. She became an England international in 2013, and played her way onto the Curtis Cup team with a string of terrific performances in big amateur tournaments through the first half of 2014.

For example, during a stay in the United States, Annabel was runner-up at the prestigious South Atlantic Ladies Amateur (a k a, the Sally) and won the Jones Doherty Cup. Back in the UK, Dimmock won the Helen Holm Scottish Open Stroke Play and was runner-up in the Welsh Open Stroke Play. And on the continent, she was runner-up at the Spanish Amateur.

Following the Curtis Cup, Annabel played in her first Ladies European Tour event, the Ladies European Masters, and placed 27th. Her 1-under par final score of 287 includes a final-round 67. As this is written, Dimmock is ranked No. 26 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.

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.
