Christine Wong

Pro golfer Christine Wong

Congratulations to Christine Wong, winner of the DCM PGA Women's Championship of Canada. The tournament concluded today (Aug. 31, 2021) at Oshawa Golf & Curling Club in Oshawa, Ontario. It was staged by the PGA of Canada.

Christine fired a 69 in the final round to finish at 5-under-par. She was the only golfer to finish the tournament under par, and won by five strokes over the runner-up.

This victory comes little more than a month since a previous big win for Wong. She claimed the 2021 Glencoe Invitational, an invitation-only tournament in Calgary, Alberta, in July, earning one of her biggest tournament paydays.

Wong is a very busy golfer. She is an instructor at University Golf Club in Vancouver, British Columbia, a club that is practically in the neighborhood she grew up in. She also works with KidSport BC helping underprivileged kids get involved in the game of golf. And she also manages to find time to coach the golf teams at a local junior college and, with her sister, also a golf pro, to help run a local junior girls tour. It's a wonder she can fit in practice time and tournament play.

Christine was the two-time high school champ of British Columbia growing up in Richmond. She played her college golf at San Diego State, where she was a four-time tournament winner.

While in college, she made the cut in the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, and won the British Columbia Women's Amateur Championship twice. Wong turned pro in 2013 and was a rookie on the Symetra Tour in 2014. But by the following year she was ready for a break from the game. In 2017, she decided to get back at it, and has enjoyed professional success — both as a club and teaching pro and as a tournament player in Canada — ever since. Her other tournament victories in recent years include the Vancouver Open women's title in 2019 and the 2020 PGA of B.C. Women's Championship.

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.

Charley Hull IG Photo Roundup

Charley Hull isn't just busy on the golf course these days, but also on Instagram where she frequently posts fun, fetching photos. Including bikini selfies. And the entire golf world says in unison, "Thanks, Charley!" The 25-year-old Charley, by the way, is having a solid 2021 LPGA season, although she's still seeking that victory. As this is written, Hull is No. 38 in the world rankings. Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st. All the following photos are ones Charley posted on her Instagram account, @charley.hull .
