College Star Annie Park Turning Pro

Annie Park is going pro. The University of Southern California star has decided this will be her final season in college. When the current season ends in late May, Park will leave USC and turn pro. She is currently in her junior season.

Park played in LPGA Tour Q-School late last year and earned status on the Symetra Tour. That's where she'll play her first tournaments as a professional golfer in a couple months.

Park just turned 20 years old. She grew up in Levittown, New York, on Long Island, and while in high school played her way into the 2012 U.S. Women's Open.

As a freshman at USC, Park won the 2013 NCAA individual women's championship; she also carded her career-best round of 64 that year. She's a 6-time collegiate winner while at USC. Four of those wins came during the 2012-13 season, tying the school record for most wins in a year. During the current season, Park has a victory at the Windy City Collegiate Championship.

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.
