Meet Tisha Alyn Abrea

If this golf thing doesn't work out for her, Tisha Alyn Abrea probably has a future in television. Currently a senior at Cal State Fullerton - her coach is former LPGA player Pearl Sinn-Bonanni - Tisha majors in broadcast journalism.

And she's getting on-the-job training as an intern for FilAm TV, the first-ever over-the-air (broadcast) channel aimed at Filipino-Americans. FilAm TV can be seen in the southern California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside and parts of Ventura, and some its programming can be watched on its website at

What is Tisha doing for them? During her internship she's interviewing at events. The FilAm TV Facebook page includes photos where you can spot Tisha doing her thing, such as in this photo album in which she's interviewing figure skater Michael Martinez. Martinez was the only representative of the Philippines at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Great experience for a broadcast journalism major. But that's not Abrea's only talent. She's a terrific dancer, too - mostly hip hop but she's been getting into ballroom lately - and has shown off her moves in some YouTube videos. Here's a lengthy dance routine that Tisha choreographed for her 18th birthday, and in which she (and her friends) shows off several different styles:

That's impressive. When I was 18, we just kind of bounced up and down and off each other and called it dancing. Tisha used to dance for the Temecula Dance Company - one of the best-known studios in southern California - but gave that up in high school to focus on golf.

Ah, golf: That's why we're spotlighting Tisha on Golf Babes. Will that golf thing work out for her?

When you can win college tournaments, you certainly have reason for optimism. And Tisha's first NCAA victory happened just a couple months ago at the Rose City Collegiate in Oregon. Tisha shot 72-70-73 for the win. She also recorded 5th-place and 15th-place finishes during the Fall part of the 2014 Cal State Fullerton schedule.

She also holds the school records for lowest round, lowest 36-hole score, lowest 54-hole score and most career Top 20 finishes. And Abrea has made multiple appearances on All-Big West Conference teams, plus the All-Academic team. In addition, she won the Los Angeles County Women's Golf Championship this year.

So keep an eye on Tisha Alyn Abrea. You might spot her on a golf course, on the dance floor or on your TV.

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.
