2014 Q-School Finalists: Lee Lopez

Lee Lopez is another of the many, many recent (and relatively recent) members of the UCLA women's golf team who've gone into the pro ranks. Some of them have become big-time players and even major champions; others, like Lee, show great promise and are working to turn that promise into paydays on the LPGA Tour.

Lopez graduated from UCLA in 2013 (with a degree in history). She actually began her NCAA career at Long Beach State, where she was Big West Freshman of the Year in the 2009-10 season. After transferring to UCLA, she was part of a national championship team, was a first-team All-America selection and team MVP in 2011-12.

This year was Lee's rookie season as a pro golfer, and she played a full season - 20 starts - on the Symetra Tour. While she didn't win, she was consistent all year and posted five Top 10 finishes. That included a 3-even stretch in June in which Lee finished fifth, second and fifth.

She wound up 14th on the Symetra Tour money list. Only the Top 10 get LPGA cards, but that finish did exempt Lopez from the first- and second-stage qualifiers in Q-School.

Lee was 22nd in scoring average, 12th in birdies, 19th in sand saves. She needs to add yards to her drives - she ranked only 121st in driving average - but is very accurate, finishing sixth in fairway percentage.

Lee's Instagram is private, but you can follow her on Twitter: @leelo03.

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.

Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st.
