Alejandra Llaneza

Alejandra Llaneza is the winner of the 2015 Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women's Health Classic. The Symetra Tour event concluded on May 10 with Llaneza one shot better than runner-up Casey Grice.

It's the first Symetra Tour win for Llaneza, who has had conditional LPGA Tour status since the 2013 season. She turned pro in 2012 after finishing her college career at the University of Arizona.

But it's not a surprise that Llaneza, who hails from Mexico, is in the winner's circle. She had nine previous Top 10s in her Symetra Tour career, and in 2015 her finishes have improved with each tournament: 29th, 23rd, 19th, 8th and now 1st.

Llaneza won the Women's Health Classic with a birdie on the final hole, one of three birdies (against no bogeys) she made on the back nine during the final round.

Alejandra was the 5-time Junior National Champion in Mexico. While still in college she won a tournament on the Cactus Tour in 2011. In 2012, after joining the Symetra Tour, she made 14 of 16 cuts. In 2013, Llaneza improved to 13 out of 13 cuts and posted her best previous finish on the tour, runner-up at IOA Golf Classic. She had two Top 10s in five starts on the Symetra in 2014.

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
