Charley Hull Becomes Newest Omega Watches Ambassador

Omega has been big in golf, particularly in European golf, for many years now. And the company that makes high-end watches, jewelry and other accessories has a knack for signing big names as endorsers. Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Michelle Wie, for example, are among the golfers who have endorsement deals with Omega, which refers to its "family of ambassadors." Other Omega ambassadors include Nicole Kidman, Buzz Aldrin, Cindy Crawford, Daniel Craig and George Clooney.

That family now includes a new ambassador, the youngest one: 18-year-old Charley Hull. Included in the announcement of the new agreement was this statement from Charley:

"Everyone is aware of the strong commitment OMEGA has made to women's golf. I'm proud to be part of a roster that includes Stacy, Michelle and Shanshan and which is now working closely with the Ladies European Tour."

Those golfers being Stacy Lewis, Michelle Wie and Shanshan Feng, obviously. The company added this note:

OMEGA has been impressed by Charley's relentless spirit and her dedication to her sport. The brand looks forward to seeing what she will accomplish in the years ahead.

As do we all! And it should be fun watching Charley grow up in golf, sporting her gleaming Omega wristwatch. Hull was the LET's Rookie of the Year in 2013, and won her first professional title at the 2014 LET Lalla Meryem Cup days before turning 18. Of course, she famously became the youngest-ever Solheim Cup player in 2013, and played very well - including a singles victory over Paula Creamer.

Charley will continue playing the LET in 2015, but also has conditional status on the LPGA for next year. In 2014, with no LPGA status, she got into nine LPGA tournaments, so expect that number to grow in 2015.

Smart investment by Omega, getting Charley Hull on board now.

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.
