Alexandra O'Laughlin: The Next Golf Channel Star

Who is Alexandra O'Laughlin? She's the next star at the Golf Channel.

Golf's 24-hour network has a knack for discovering young, talented female announcers, who often start out primarily doing web features or running the social media desk for the network. Bailey (Mosier) Chamblee, for example, got her start that way. But the presenter's talent — and growing popularity — eventually lead to a bigger role.

And that's what we should expect with Alexandra.

O'Laughlin joined Golf Channel earlier in 2017 in the role of "social media host." What does that mean? It means "contributing to the network's social media platforms at tournaments and events throughout the golf calendar," the Golf Channel explains.

From Alexandra's GolfChannel.com bio:

"A two-time Academic All-American and captain of the Lewis University women’s golf team in Chicago, O’Laughlin took up the game in eighth grade and worked with Golf Channel Academy coach Trent Wearner in high school, ultimately leading to her scholarship at Lewis University. She graduated with a communications degree, was a three-time Academic All-Conference and worked at CBS News Radio as an assistant producer before joining Golf Channel."

But before she was a broadcaster or a college golfer, Alexandra was a model, both in print and on the runway. She's still a model today, represented by a big-time agency, and she's been seen in campaigns that have appeared, for example, in GQ magazine and on Times Square billboards.

Here are some more photos of Alexandra, in slideshow format via YouTube (it also includes a few swings):

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

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.
