Paige Spiranac Begins Pro Career With 68

Here's the tweet that trick-shot artist and Internet sensation Paige Spiranac sent out today:

Great start for Paige and hopefully puts to rest the thought (in some quarters, certainly not at Golf Babes) that Paige's talents were mainly marketing and not golf. Yes, she's great at the former as her tens of thousands of social media fans know. But she's also a talented golfer, as her multiple Top 10 college finishes at San Diego State University showed.

Perhaps that's what she had in mind a couple weeks ago when she tweeted this:

As for the tournament Spiranac played today: It's an event on the Cactus Tour, you can keep up with scores here.

And yes, it's the first pro tour event Paige has played as a professional golfer. She opened with six straight pars before birdying the 7th. She added birdies on 12, 14 and 15 and finished at 4-under 68, without a single bogey.

She had to be feeling some pressure at the beginning of the start. By any measure a bogey-free 68 is a great first pro round; for Paige, even moreso. Here's hoping she keeps it up.

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.
