Sandra Gal Writing Diary for USA Today

It was New Year's Eve when Sandra Gal posted the above pic to Instagram, and she captioned it, "2015 already tastes good."

It probably tastes even better today: As I write this, LPGA players are in action at the tour's season-opener. And Sandra is now a diarist for USA Today. An editor's note that preceded Gal's first entry told readers that "(t)his season LPGA golfer Sandra Gal will be writing a weekly diary for USA Today Sports to share her adventures on the Tour."

What does Sandra have to say in her diary? Among other things:

I have never played an LPGA event so close to my college stomping grounds as here, just around the corner from Gainesville and the University of Florida. This feels like a full circle moment to me, because not only did I learn about the 25 second attention span during my coursework toward my degree in Advertising, but being a part of the College of Journalism and Communications I also learned that writing for, well, USA Today, is a big deal. My recipe? Be a pro golfer for seven years first, win, smile, oh, and be German.

The year could get even better for Gal later on, if she makes the European Solheim Cup team: the Cup is played in Germany this year.

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.
