Cactur Tour Win for USC's Gabi Ruffels

Playing as an amateur, Gabi Ruffels earned her first win in a pro tournament on June 26, 2020. Ruffels won the Cactus Tour tournament played at Legacy Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada, by two strokes over fellow amateur Briana Chacon.

Ruffels, a 20-year-old from Australia who is a senior at Southern Cal, started the final round two strokes behind Chacon. But a final-round 66 took care of that. She finished at 13-under 203.

Ruffels is also the reigning U.S. Women's Amateur champion. And in preparation for her title defense in that tournament in Augusta, Ruffels will be playing in July, in the Jacksonville Amateur Championship. She'll be the first woman in tournament history to play that event, and will be playing from the same tees as the guys.

"I thought it was a great opportunity to test my game before the Women’s Am," Ruffels told the Golf Channel. "The women’s amateur schedule has been very restricted with everything that's going on, so has been tough to find women's am events."

Based on her performance on the Cactus Tour, a title defense (or a top showing in Jacksonville) certainly appears within reach for Ruffels.

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.
