Ashlan Ramsey Wins Georgia Women's Open for 1st Pro Victory

When we wrote about Ashlan Ramsey back in January, the post was titled, "Injury not dimming Ashlan Ramsey's optimist about rookie season."

This week, Ash made that headline look good: She won her first pro tournament, the Georgia Women's Open.

The GWO took place Monday-Tuesday (July 13-14) at Brookfield Country Club in Roswell, Ga. The tournament, staged by the PGA Georgia Section, is one of a number of state opens played around the country every year.

Ashlan opened with a 65, after which she tweeted this:

That lowest competitive round was followed up Tuesday with a 67. Ramsey finished at 132 - 12-under par - and seven shots ahead of the second-place finisher.

Ashlan had zero over-par holes during the Georgia Women's Open, and 12 birdies. That's getting it done.

Her first pro victory comes little more than a year after Ramsey turned pro, still a teen-ager, following one season on the Clemson University golf team. Back pain prevented her from competing in the LPGA's Q-School last year.

But a healthy Ashlan Ramsey is definitely a golfer to watch - a golfer with a bright future.

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.
