Linda Henriksson

A short video Linda Henriksson posted to one of her social media accounts caught my eye - a coordination drill that she does:

Do you think you could do that? As I told Linda on Facebook, I'd probably fall over (or break my shins) if I tried. But, according to Linda, "You should try! It's not as complicated as it looks!" So if you want to work on your hand-eye coordination, give this drill a try.

Linda is from Finland, and as a little girl her interests were more in football (soccer), track and field, ballet and piano. But she took up golf at age 8, and one year later was playing in under-12 tournaments. She began high school at age 14 - she's one smart golfer - and after graduating high school in 2008 moved to Sweden to go to university.

Linda turned pro in 2011 and played the Nordea Tour in 2011-12. In 2013 she moved up to the LET Access Series, the feeder tour into the Ladies European Tour. Henriksson finished 13th on the LAS money list that year with finishes including third, fourth and eighth. Then, at LET Q-School at the end of 2013, she earned partial status on the LET for the 2014 season.

Henriksson got into five LET events last year and played more on the Access Series (including a fourth-place finish), then went back to Q-School and improved her position for 2015.

Among the other places we've noticed Linda was on GolfSpelledBackwards.com's ranking of the Sexiest Women in Golf for 2014.

Want to get to know Linda a little better? Of course you do! So follow her on Twitter, on Instagram, or on Facebook.

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.
