So Yeon Ryu Wins No. 9 on KLPGA

The great Korean golfers on the LPGA Tour occasionally head back home to play in a KLPGA tournament. And So Yeon Ryu did just that this week. Did it pay off? You bet! Ryu won the HighOne Resort Ladies Open today by two shots over runner-up Ha-Na Jang, shooting rounds of 71, 67, 69 and 70.

This is the ninth career win on the KLPGA for Ryu, but her first since 2012. Ryu won seven times on the KLPGA from 2008 through 2011, including five times in 2009. But since 2011 So Yeon has made only a few appearances a year on the KLPGA.

That's because she won the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, becoming an LPGA member as a result. And she has three career wins to date on the LPGA.

Ryu went into the week holding the No. 4 spot in the women's world rankings.

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.
