Krista Puisite is a 23-year-old from Latvia now residing in Austin, Texas. Krista wound up in Austin by way of Texas State University, which is in San Marcos, Texas, just outside of Austin.

And Puisite is arguably the best golfer in TSU history. She holds many school records, including lowest season scoring average (72.4 in 2012-13), best tournament score (209), low individual tournament round (67), most below-par rounds and many more. She won five NCAA tournaments while at Texas State, and in her final year was among the national leaders in birdies made. She also earned All-America honors with three victories in her senior season.

Krista turned pro in 2014 and immediately won twice on the Suncoast mini-tour. On the Symetra Tour in 2014, Puisite has made 10 starts and her best finish so far is a tie for fifth place at the Symetra Classic.

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.
