Anna Rawson Gets Her MBA

Congratulations to former LPGA Tour golfer Anna Rawson: As of this past Sunday, she is the holder of a Masters degree in Business Administration from a very prestigious school:

Anna is some kind of modern Renaissance woman: golf career, modeling career, and now she can embark on a business career. In 2014, Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper had an article about Rawson's pursuit of her business Masters and wrote: "She sees herself combining her past life with her keen interest in business, and feels Columbia will help her do that."

The article explains that Anna's interest in an MBA was spurred by all the corporate CEOs she met during golf tournament pro-ams, and suggests she might put her MBA to use with a business focused on golf clothing:

Ms. Rawson admits that students who are concentrating in finance have a hard time believing the kinds of people – from portfolio managers to CEOs – with whom she’s played golf. “They’re shocked at the access that I got.”

That access allowed her to pick the brains of some of the most successful people in U.S. business, helping her in and out of the classroom. Ms. Rawson says that she is going to try to embark down an entrepreneurship path in the clothing industry, particularly active wear.

Of course, Anna still models and still plays golf, and sometimes combines the two as in photoshoots for the golf magazines, or video series. Who knows, maybe someday we'll see Anna Rawson running one of the big golf companies.

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.
