Cold Outside? Warm Up With Belen Mozo in a Bikini

Winter has descended on our part of the world. Darn that polar vortex! No golf for us this weekend. And perhaps it is very cold where you are, too, right now. But it's not cold where Belen Mozo is. The LPGA golfer is in Colombia, part vacation (Belen's longtime boyfriend, pro tennis player Robert Farah, is Colombian), part working vacation. The vacation part is visible in these photos. The "working vacation" part is in the daily golf practice and fitness training she is doing in preparation for the 2017 LPGA season. And for good measure:

Jaye Marie Green Wins 2016 LPGA Q-School

Jaye Marie Green claimed medalist honors at the LPGA's 2016 final-stage qualifying tournament, beating runner-up Olafia Kristinsdottir by one stroke. And guess what: This is the second time Green has won Q-School. She was also medalist at the final stage in 2013, and she is the first golfer in all the years the event has been played in Daytona Beach, Fla. (since 1991) to win it twice. Jaye, still only 22 years old, turned pro at age 19 and her rookie LPGA season was in 2014. She has three career Top 10 finishes thus far and nearly half a million in career earnings. In the just-completed 2016 season, Green finished 112th on the money list. She didn't have to play Q-School, but doing so - and especially winning - improves her status for 2017 and guarantees her a full season. Don't be surprised if Jaye makes a leap in 2017.

First LPGA Win for Charley Hull

Charley Hull, one of the bright young stars in women's golf, broke through for her first LPGA Tour victory in the 2016 season-ender. And it was a big one: the CME Group Tour Championship. Hull was five off the pace following the second round, but a 66 in the third round moved her up to first place. Then Charley fired another 66 in the final round to finish at 19-under 269 and win by two strokes. She even broke the tournament scoring record. Cristie Kerr had the previous mark of 271. Hull, still only 20 years old, appeared in the Solheim Cup playing for Team Europe before she was an LPGA Tour member and before her first professional win. Charley's first Solheim appearance was in 2013; she made the squad again in 2015. Pro win No. 1 happened on the Ladies European Tour in 2014, and her rookie season on the LPGA was in 2015. She missed only one cut as a rookie last year, finishing 48th on the money list with two Top 10 finishes. In 2016, she entered the season-ender the To

Minjee Lee Wins in China

A birdie on the final hole gave Australia's Minjee Lee the victory at the 2016 Blue Bay LPGA tournament in China. Lee stumbled on the 71st hole with a bogey, but recovered with that final-hole birdie. Jessica Korda had a change to tie with an eagle putt at the last, but missed. Korda birdied and was runner-up, one behind Lee. It was the third career LPGA Tour victory for Minjee, who is still (hard to believe!) just 20 years old. It was also her second LPGA win of 2016, following the Lotte Championship in April. Her first LPGA win was at the 2015 Kingsmill Championship.

Watch Liz Elmassian Show Off Her Trick Shot Skills

Elizabeth Elmassian is a 20-year-old amateur golfer from Australia. She is one of the top Australian amateurs, and is ranked No. 152 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings at the time of this writing. There's no question Liz has a future in professional golf; the only question is, at what level? That remains to be seen, but she's working hard at her game. She possesses plenty of skill, which is obvious not just by her ranking but by her trick shot abilities. It takes lots of skill to pull these off and, we imagine, lots of patience for multiple takes while you try to get it right. Check out Elmassian's trick shots below, and follow her on social media (Instagram: @lizelmassian - Twitter: @lizelmassian ) for future updates.

Another Win for Madelene Sagstrom in Record-Breaking Symetra Season

Madelene Sagstrom is a winner again on the Symetra Tour with her victory in the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout, completed in Arkansas on Oct. 2. And it's easy to say now that Sagstrom is having one of the greatest years in the history of the Symetra Tour/Futures Tour. But you don't have to take our word for it: The tour itself, in a headline on its website , called Sagstrom's 2016 the "greatest season in tour history." The win in Arkansas was Sagstrom's third of the year, and that earns her a "battlefield promotion" to the LPGA Tour. Alas, the LPGA has no more full-field, domestic tournaments in 2016, so that promotion is on paper only. Still, it's a very nice achievement, and Sagstrom is set for her LPGA rookie season in 2017. Sagstrom turned pro early in the year after finishing her college career at LSU. She made 14 starts on the Symetra Tour and missed the Top 10 in just three of those. Included in those 11 Top 10 finishes, and in

In Gee Chun Shatters Records at the 2016 Evian Championship

In Gee Chun was already a major championship winner when she arrived in France for the 2016 Evian Championship. Now that it's over, Chun is not only a 2-time major winner, she's the holder of a couple of all-time records. Chun won the 2016 Evian by four shots over runners-up and countrywomen So Yeon Ryu and Sung Hyun Park. But it's her eye-popping final score that is, well, popping eyes. Chun finished at 21-under 263. How good is that? Consider this: In Gee is the first golfer ever - male or female - to win a major championship at 21-under par. Her score is two strokes lower than the previous record (Dottie Pepper's 19-under at the 1999 Kraft Nabisco) for an LPGA major. And her 263 total lowers the all-time LPGA score record for majors by four strokes. That breaks a record (267) set way back in 1992 by Betsy King. That's good stuff! In Gee's first victory in a major was at the 2015 U.S. Women's Open. And her total there (272) shares the USWO&#

Esther Lee Cards Record Score En Route to College Victory

It's not always easy to follow up a record-setting round of golf. There's nowhere to go but up - as in higher scores - after all. But Esther Lee made it work. Lee tied the all-time women's NCAA 18-hole scoring record in the first round of the Dick McGuire Invitational tournament, then added two more sub-70 scores to win the event hosted by the University of New Mexico. Lee, a senior on the University of Colorado squad, opened the 54-hole tournament with a round of 61. That tied the NCAA record first set by Stanford's Mariah Stackhouse. In Lee's case, it was 11-under par, establishing a new record for score in relation to par for 18 holes. Lee shot 69 in the second round 68 in the final round, finishing at 18-under 198 and winning by five strokes. That 54-hole total represents a new school record. Esther earned her first victory in her sophomore season at Colorado, a year in which she had 10 Top 20 finishes overall. She was named to the All-Pac 12 team, an

Texas Tech's Gabby Barker Wins Opener

At the end of the 2015-16 college golf season, Gabby Barker won her conference's Player of the Year Award. At the beginning of the 2016-17 college season, Barker has won the season-opening tournament. Barker's junior season on the Texas Tech University women's golf team began with a bang on Tuesday - a victory in the Red Raider Invitational in Lubbock. Barker carded rounds of 70, 73 and 71 to finish at 2-under 214 on the tough, windswept Rawls Course. That included a 34 over her final nine, good for a 1-stroke victory over Iowa's Jessica Ip. Gabby, from Caldwell, Idaho, and a member of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe, won the Big 12 Women's Golf Player of the Year award last May following her sophomore season. She was the first golfer ever from Texas Tech to claim that award. Her 2015-16 season included a victory at the Betsy Rawls Invitational, one of the biggest tournaments of the NCAA year.
