Virginia Tech Coach Carol Robertson Makes 2 Aces in 3 Holes

Most golfers go our entire lives without a hole-in-one. But Carol Robertson recently made two - not just in the same round, but in the first five holes of her round!

Robertson is the head coach of the women's golf team at Virginia Tech, a team that Robertson is putting together for its first-ever season, the 2015-16 season. The Hokies decided in 2013 to add the program, and its first tournament begins Sept. 20 at the Lady Paladin Invitational at Furman. Robertson came to Virginia Tech after a couple years as the head coach at Old Dominion. As a competitor, Robertson played collegiately at James Madison and won the Virginia Amateur in 2006.

But with the university on Spring Break, Coach Robertson headed south to the warmer climes of Florida. And playing at Celebration Golf Club in Orlando on Monday, Robertson came up aces.

Ace No. 1 happened on the third hole, a 159-yard par-3. Amazingly, it wasn't long until this happened:

Ace No. 2 came just two holes after the first, on the 161-yard fifth hole. Two holes-in-one in her first five holes, two aces within a 3-hole stretch. That's amazing!

And probably a good way to make sure your freshmen listen when you coach 'em up.

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.
