2014 Q-School Finalists: Stephanie Meadow

The Final Stage of LPGA Q-School begins on Dec. 3, and one of the top contenders there will be Stephanie Meadow. Meadow was exempt from Stage I, but did have to play Stage II and advanced with ease there, finished tied for 16th.

If Stephanie hits it big in professional golf - and there's every reason to think she will - she might become a star in America. First, she's a beautiful ginger, and they always stand out. But more importantly, she has a lovely Irish accent. And Americans are suckers for Irish, Scottish, English and Australian accents.

Why do we say there's every reason to think Stephanie will be a big success as a pro? Well, among other things, she made her professional debut earlier in 2014 at the U.S. Women's Open and finished tied for third place.

Meadow just completed four years at the University of Alabama (where she fit into the football culture just fine, as the top photo demonstrates). She was a 3-time, first-team All-America selection, and recorded nine NCAA tournament victories.

She also played for Team Great Britain & Ireland on the 2012 and 2014 Curtis Cup teams.

As noted, she came joint third in her professional debut at the 2014 U.S. Women's Open, and also finished third in the LET's Ladies European Masters.

Stephanie has some catching up to do in the points standings, but I won't be surprised if she winds up playing her way onto the 2015 European Solheim Cup team.

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.
