LPGA’s throwback Thursday

1. Lizette Salas

Lizette Salas seems not to have changed a lot through out the years. But if we take a close look we could say she has grown as a player and as a person. Salas is one of those players who really cares about the fans and tries to connect with them, something she has learned from her mentor Nancy Lopez.


In 2010 Salas made her first appearance in a professional tournament after qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Open.

2. Alena Sharp

Alena Sharp started playing golf at the age of 10 and credits her parents as the individuals most influencing her career. Growing up she played hockey, soccer and golf. Something many may not know about her is that in 2006 she started the Alena Sharp Charity Classic, which annually benefits The Alzheimer’s Society of Brant-Hamilton-Halton.


Sharp was a two-time winner of the Ontario Junior Championship (1997-98).

3. Beatriz Recari

All the way from Pamplona, Spain, comes Beatriz Recari one of the four 2014 International Crown champions. Recari also enjoys life outside the golf course due to her engaging personality. Her hobbies include listening to music, reading, playing tennis, hitting the gym and cross-country skiing.


Recari won the 2004 Spanish Amateur Championship and the 2005 French Amateur Championship.

4. Jane Park

Jane Park started playing golf at the age of 11 and credits Tiger Woods as the individual most influencing her career. Her hobbies include watching the NBA (Lakers fan), reading good novels, playing the piano and listening to music, especially oldies, jazz and hip hop. Not many people know that she’s affiliated with Team Fox for Parkinson’s Research since 2008.


In 2004 Park won the U.S Women’s Amateur Championship.

5. Lydia Ko

The No. 1 player in women’s golf, Lydia Ko, has changed a lot in her swing and in appearance. But her game has only changed for the better. After she started to work with David Leadbetter she changed certain things of her game, which have led her to highest ranked position. Ko’s hobbies include going to the movies and reading.


Lydia won four professional tournaments in her amateur career.
