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:
