Elizabeth Szokol

Elizabeth Szokol made a splash at the 2021 Marathon LPGA Classic, where, as this is written, she stands tied for second place. It wouldn't be her first Top 10 finish on the LPGA if she maintains that spot, however.

Szokol turned pro in 2017 after an NCAA career that started at Northwestern before she transferred to Virginia. In 2017, she had six Top 10 finishes in her rookie year on the Symetra Tour. That included a tie for second place as her season-best.

In 2018, Szokol got her first professional win on the Symetra Tour at the IOA Invitational in May, then tied for the third the following week. Through the rest of the year, Szokol posted five more Top 10s, including in four of her final five starts. She finished fourth on the Symetra Tour money list in 2018, and that earned her an LPGA Tour membership in 2019.

Szokol has been on the LPGA Tour since, and has had some close calls at victory. Her best showing in her rookie year of 2019 was tied for sixth in the Ladies Scottish Open. In 2020 it was 11th at the Pelican Women's Championship. And in 2021, prior to the Marathon Classic, it was tied for seventh at the Pure Silk Championship.

Elizabeth has some power in her game. In her last season on the Symetra Tour, she averaged 277 yards off the tie and led that tour in eagles. Mid-way through 2021, Szokol is averaging 268 yards per drive on the LPGA.

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.
