Stephanie Kyriacou's First Win as a Pro

Golfer Stephanie Kyriacou

Australian golfer Stephanie Kyriacou has her second win on the Ladies European Tour — but her first as a professional golfer. The 20-year-old won the Big Green Egg Open, played in the Netherlands and which concluded on July 3, 2021.

A little more than a year earlier, playing as an amateur, Kyriacou earned her first LET victory at the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville.

Kyriacou started the Big Green Egg Open (named after the popular grillers/smokers) with a 66. She followed that with rounds of 72, 65 and 67 to finish at 18-under 270. That was two strokes better than the runner-up, Sanna Nuutinen. The victory moved her up to second place on the LET's Race to Costa Del Sol points list.

After that win as an amateur in 2020, Kyriacou turned pro and went on to earn the 2020 LET Rookie of the Year Award. In her last seven starts in 2020, Stephanie finished in the Top 10 in six of them, with a worst of 17th. She was runner-up at the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open.

Prior to her Big Green Egg Open win, Steph had four LET starts in 2021 that included a fourth-place finish in the Italian Open.

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.
