Jean Chua's Beach Photo Shoot

Jean Chua is back home this week, in her hometown of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to play in the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia tournament.

You can also spot Jean this month in the page of Men's Health Malaysia, frolicking on the beach as part of a photo shoot that accompanies an article about her.

The article is headlined "The Trailblazing Angel," and is teased this way by the magazine: "We spent a day at the beach with Jean Chua, one of the Malaysian angels at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia Tournament this month. She opens up about dating and how you can measure up."

Some of the ways you can measure up if you want to date Jean are included in her Twitter bio: "LPGA golfer, born in Malaysia. Avid Fantasy Football Fan. Victoria Secret head to toe. Learning the ropes of hunting gators." Fantasy football, Victoria's Secret, gator hunting. And unexpected combo! (She's serious about the gator hunting, by the way.) An interest in ballroom dancing will also help your chances.

How can you read the article and see more photos from the shoot? It's not online yet, but keep an eye on the Men's Health Malaysia website, and also the magazine's Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.

Jean's first sport of choice was rythmic gymnastics, but she switched to golf in her early teens. She won the Hong Kong Amateur in 2003 and and the Asian Girls Junior Championship in 2004. She earned a scholarship to Wake Forest University and recorded once NCAA victory there.

She turned pro in 2009 and won in her very first start as a pro at the Thai LPGA Open. In 2011, Jean first earned Symetra Tour status. She had excellent seasons in 2012 and 2013, finishing 15th and 25th, respectively, on the Symetra Tour money lists. Both seasons she recorded runner-up finishers, at the 2012 Riviera Nayarit Classic and at the 2013 Eagle Classic.

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.
