Another Win for Annie Park

Annie Park has only been a pro since May. But she just won her second tournament on the Symetra Tour.

Annie caught Lee Lopez in the final round - that's some USC-on-UCLA crime - of the PHC Classic, which concluded on Aug. 2. She did it with birdies on the final two holes. And then in the playoff between the two, Park won it with a birdie on the third extra hole.

This is just Park's sixth start as a pro after leaving Southern Cal following the end of her junior season. In those six starts, Annie has finished 19th, 47th, 13th, first, 15th and first again.

That's a pretty good start to your rookie season!

Going into the PHC Classic, Park led the Symetra Tour in scoring average, and she was 15th in money. With her latest first-place check, she'll move into the Top 5 and be in great position to play her way onto the LPGA Tour for next season.

Here's the winning putt:

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.

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.
