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.

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.
