Belen Mozo Helps Spain Claim First International Crown

The first LPGA International Crown tournament is in the books, and Team Spain is the winner. I loved everything about the event, and can't wait for the next one in 2016. With a brand new event and brand new format, you're always looking for ways to make it better. But I don't think the LPGA needs to change anything about it, and hope we see the same format two years from now.

The winning points for Spain came from Belen Mozo, who took a 3-and-2 victory in singles to clinch it for the Spaniards. It was a great week for Mozo, who was the lowest-ranked of the four members of Team Spain. But she came up big multiple times, not just in Sunday singles. On Saturday Mozo, partnering Beatriz Recari, hit plenty of big shots and holed a great putt late to win another two points for her team.

Something you probably remember about Belen is that she is one of the golfers who've posed for ESPN the Magazine's "body issue." Here's a behind-the-scenes video look at that shoot:

And something you might not know about her is that she and her boyfriend have formed a golf-tennis relationship for years - before Rory and Caro ever got together or broke up. Mozo's boyfriend is Colombian tennis player Robert Farah, a player who's been ranked as high as the mid-20s in doubles:

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.
