Sandra Gal, Hee Young Park Perform Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy'

Beethoven's Ode to Joy, the final movement of the composer's Ninth Symphony, is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written. Sandra Gal and Hee Young Park are two of the greatest golfers in the world, and two people who, as is obvious from their social media accounts, love life. They are full of joy.

What better pairing than these two buddies combining their talents - Sandra on violin, "Rocket" on piano - on Ode to Joy?

This performance by what Sandra called the "Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra" took place in Gal's home recently, on the night of dinner that Sandra prepared for friends. Sandra posted a bit of their recital in two videos on Instagram:

Roll over, Beethoven, and tell Tchaikovsky the news: These girls rock!

Sandra shared on her Facebook page a preview of the dinner she was cooking this night:

And a photo of herself, Hee Young and Anna Nordqvist dining together:

Hey, wait a minute: Doesn't Anna play an instrument, too? Yes, she does, the violin. So why wasn't Anna taking part in the performance above, too? This tweet by Anna (retweeted by Gal) might provide a clue:

But maybe, if Anna practices, then the next time we see the Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra it will include Nordqvist, too.

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.
