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.
