Instagramming with .... Eileen Kelly

Eileen Kelly is a Canadian golfer who was actually born in Costa Rica. But she grew up on the gorgeous and wonderful Vancouver Island, which is home to British Columbia's capital city of Victoria. Now she spends half her time in her hometown and half in the warmer climes of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Let's go Instagramming with Eileen as we learn more about her.

Above, after winning her club championship. Before golf, however, Eileen's focus was on elite-level ballet. She didn't take up golf seriously until age 20.

"Golf requires extreme diligence, patience and attention to detail," Kelly told us. "I believe these qualities reminded me of my ballet training and before I knew it, I was hooked."

"I played my first serious tournament when I was twenty, broke eighty, made the cut and was offered a scholarship on the University of British Columbia Women’s golf team. Ever since then, you can find me grinding away at the golf course."

Except when she's doing yoga, of course. Or celebrating her birthday with her Arizona crew:

Have you noticed how all the young women golf pros in Phoenix/Scottsdale are gorgeous? Golf Babes has noticed! (Alana and Eileen both represent Longball Inc., a Canada-based golf clothing designer.)

What's in store for Eileen in 2015? "I will continue to work with my swing coach and play Cactus Tour events in Arizona for the first part of the year," she says. "I will head back to my beautiful hometown in Canada for the summer, where I will continue to prepare for first stage of LPGA qualifying school in August."

She's also a fitness buff, and all her work is clearly paying off:

During a typical week Eileen does kickboxing, hot yoga, spin class, weight training, sprints and high-intensity interval training.

And not that more evidence of Eileen's callipygousness is needed, but ...

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
