Phoebe Torrance (Sam's Daughter) On Road to the Big Screen

Longtime European Tour member, Ryder Cup player and Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance tweeted out a celebratory message today:

The message was to his daughter, Phoebe Torrance, an aspiring actress.

And Phoebe is an actress who, while currently light on credits, is brimming with talent and potential. You don't get into the The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, where she previously studied, or the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she currently studies, without sparkling talent. Those are two of the (probably the two) most famous and most prestigious artist academies in the world.

Like her father, Phoebe plays golf. But there was always a competing urge to perform: After all, her mother is the English actress Suzanne Danielle. In that household, Phoebe gravitated toward her mother's profession.

She does still play golf today, however; Torrance told me on Twitter that "my grandpa Bob always said I had a good swing - but no handicap! Nowhere nearly as good as my bro." Phoebe's brother is Daniel Torrance, and she has a sister, Anouska Torrance (who has "model" written all over her, as well).

Signing on with Storm Management - which prompted papa Sam's tweet - is, itself, a very big deal for Phoebe. Storm is one of the iconic names in artist management. As the agency itself puts it, Storm "is renowned internationally for representing many of the world’s most iconic faces, including Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Cara & Poppy Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Cole and Eva Herzigova." Check out the page of Storm Artists that now includes Phoebe Torrance and you'll find many, many more recognizable names and faces.

Phoebe's IMDB page shows a few credits to date: a 2012 short called You Love Me; a 2013 short called The Bouncer; and a 2014 independent flick called Game Over.

You can watch Phoebe's showreel here, on the website of her UK representative, Curtis Brown.

With that talent - and that face - there's little doubt we'll be getting to know her much better in the years ahead. And who knows, once she's famous (I'm just going to go ahead and call it: Phoebe is destined for fame) maybe we'll even get to see her golf game in one of the tour's pro-ams.

You can follow Phoebe on Twitter or on Instagram.

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.
