Amy Boulden

Amy Boulden is having herself quite the rookie season on the Ladies European Tour in 2014.

On the day this is being written, the 21-year-old golfer from Wales finished second at the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, one behind winner Azahara Munoz. Earlier in the season Boulden had a fourth-place finish. Then she had a third-place finish. Now she has a runner-up. Is win No. 1 just around the corner?

Boulden's rookie LET season got off to a rough start with two missed cuts in her first three starts. But in nine starts since then she has missed only one cut; in the other eight events, her worst finish was 32nd. She has four Top 10s in those other eight starts, plus an 11th and a 20th. That's a very good stretch for a proven veteran; for a young, first-year player, it's fantastic.

Boulden won the BBC's Young Sportwomen of the Year citation in 2008. She played on the European Junior Ryder Cup team in 2009 and Junior Solheim Cup team in 2010. She represented Great Britain & Ireland in the Vagliano Trophy in 2011 and 2013, and was on the GB&I Curtis Cup team in 2012. Amy won the Scottish Amateur in 2012 and the Welsh Amateur in 2013. And while still an amater she played her way into three Women's British Opens.

Amy turned pro late in 2013 and had a runner-up finish in an LET Access Series tournament. At LET Q-School she earned provisional status, then improved her status in the first re-rank in 2014 on the strength of her early season showings.

Before her 2nd-place finish in the French Open Amy was 34th on the LET money list and in second place in the Rookie of the Year standings.

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.
