Muni He (aka Lily He)

Who is Muni He? She's a highly promising amateur golfer who just completed her freshman season at the University of Southern California. And, as is obvious, if the pro golf thing doesn't work out (it will), there's always modeling.

Muni - friends call her Lily - was born in China but grew up in Southern California playing the junior circuit. She first gained national prominence in 2014 with an Honorable Mention selection as a Rolex Junior All-American. She made the first team in 2016.

In 2015, Muni qualified to play in the U.S. Women's Open and made the cut. She played in her first two professional tournaments, the Blue Bay LPGA and the Hyundai China Ladies Open.

More appearances in pro tournaments followed in 2016, including a tie for 30th place at the Reignwood LPGA Classic. She also played the Hyundai China Ladies Open and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters.

So despite her young age - still just 19 - Muni He has a multi-continent, multi-pro-tour resume already.

And her freshman season as a USC Trojan? Southern Cal always has a very strong women's golf team. Muni made the tournament roster for nine of USC's 12 tournaments with a best finish of seventh place.

At the time this is written, He is ranked No. 47 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.

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.
