Korean golfer Hee Jeong Lim

Hee Jeong Lim got her first win since 2019 on the Korean LPGA Tour (KLPGA) on August 22, 2021. The 21-year-old claimed the trophy at the High1 Resort Ladies Open. She carded rounds of 69, 71, 69 and 68 to finish at 11-under 277 and one stroke ahead of the runners-up.

Lim entered the tournament off a tie for second place in her previous event, the KLPGA MBN Ladies Open. She was ranked No. 49 in the women's world rankings entering the High1, and has been as high as No. 27 in 2021.

Hee Jeong's best finish on the LPGA Tour to date is a tie for sixth place at the 2019 BMW Ladies Championship, a tournament played in South Korea. So far, the vast majority of Lim's golf, both as an amateur and a pro, has been played in her home country.

Lim turned pro in 2019 at age 19. And she had a great KLPGA rookie year. She won three times, including the KB Star Championship, a KLPGA major. She was runner-up in the rookie of the year standings, finished fourth on the KLPGA money list and sixth in scoring average.

In the COVID-interrupted 2020 season, Lim was unable to get a win but had several close calls. She posted nine Top 10 finishes on the KLPGA and finished eighth on the money list.

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.
