Lily May Humphreys, English Up-and-Comer

Golfer Lily May Humphreys

Which British teenager can have her cake and eat it, too? Lily May Humphreys, that's who. The 19-year-old from England just played in her first LET Access Series tournament, and now she has her first career win as a professional golfer.

Humphreys turned pro in early June 2021. Just a few weeks later, in late June, she teed off in the LETAS' Golf Flanders LETAS Trophy in Belgium. She opened with a round of 70, then carded a 67 in the second round.

In the final round Humphreys posted her best score of the tournament, a 66, which was tied for low round of the tournament. She finished at 10-under 203, winning by six strokes.

“It feels amazing to have my first win as a professional and hopefully, it’s the first of many!" Humphreys said after the victory.

Given her pedigree, that's a reasonable expectation. Lily May played for Team Europe in the 2019 Junior Solheim Cup and for Team GB&I in the 2018 Curtis Cup. She was runner-up in the 2020 English Women's Amateur Championship, after tying for third in the 2020 English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship and qualifying for the U.S. Women's Open.

In 2019, she had three wins in significant amateur tournaments: the Welsh Ladies Open Stroke Play Championship, the Irish Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship, and the Annika Invitational Europe. She was runner-up in 2019 in both the English Women's Amateur Championship and English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship.

Among her other amateur achievements are wins in the 2017 Girls British Open Amateur Championship and 2018 Helen Holm Scottish Women’s Open Championship.

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.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
