Socially speaking: LPGA's best
With the 2014 season in full swing, we decided to take a look at some of the LPGA's best and brightest. In 140 characters or less and Earlybird filter usage, that is. Here are our favorite social media moments from February as the women continue the Australian-Asian leg of the tour.
Karrie Webb | @Karrie_Webb | Ranking: 7
What's more popular than Bruno Mars AND "The Walking Dead"? For the ones of you out there who guessed Karrie Webb, you would be right. As pointed out by the former top-ranked golfer herself, Webb was Yahoo's top trending topic shortly after winning the Australian Open. Sure, it's a little bit of a #HumbleBrag but you might do the same if you managed to top the LPGA's best and America's most beloved zombie fighters in the same week.
Not sure if can c this pic well but I'm apparently trendier than Bruno Mars! Trending #1 on yahoo yesterday! pic.twitter.com/i8XgQQVobz - Karrie Webb (@Karrie_Webb) February 18, 2014
Cindy LaCrosse | @CindyLaCrosse | Ranking: 171
We're just going to let excerpts from LaCrosse's epically-beautiful Twitter poem (complete with Kristen Wiig pictures!) based on a dream about Paula Creamer's engagement party speak for itself here. Watch out, Willy Shakes. There's a new wordsmith in town.
I had a dream I was invited to celebrate @ThePCreamer 's engagement. #cindyspoem pic.twitter.com/PiOXuVx2Ja - Cindy LaCrosse (@CindyLaCrosse) February 19, 2014
Michelle Wie | @themichellewie | Ranking: 48
Michelle Wie seems to always take the best pictures from the coolest locations despite her peers usually being in THE EXACT SAME PLACE. You might want to start taking notes, ladies.
Suzann Pettersen | @suzannpettersen | Ranking: 2
Pettersen may be the second-ranked golfer in the world and have won 14 career LPGA titles, but clearly she still longs for Internet meme status as evidenced below.
Anna Nordqvist | @ANordqvist | Ranking: 14
The Swedish golfer won her third title in Thailand by holding off top-ranked Inbee Park by two strokes. But more impressively, she did it while presumably not even speaking to her Canadian caddie after the women's Olympic curling final.
Paula Creamer | @ThePCreamer | Ranking: 11
Paula Creamer likes golf, absorbing the local culture of each tour stop and fashion. And based on her Twitter and Instagram feeds, we're not entirely sure in what order but we think golf might be a distant third. See exhibits A and B below. And that's just from the past week.
Danielle Kang | @daniellekang | Ranking: 96
ADORABLE ANIMAL ALERT! While playing in Thailand, Kang visited a tiger sanctuary and posed with this beyond-cute cub, all but securing a place on this list.
Angela Stanford | @Angela_Stanford | Ranking: 19
Just in case you were feeling envious about the glamorous life of an LPGA player, Stanford proves not everything on tour is all sunshine, butterflies and food that one might actually want to consume.
I've been trying to figure out what to say about this option at the pro-am party in Thailand.... pic.twitter.com/ZdO9FhM0zY- Angela Stanford (@Angela_Stanford) February 19, 2014
Cheyenne Woods | @Cheyenne_Woods | Ranking: 139
While not technically on the LPGA Tour, Woods is still one of the best-known names in women's golf thanks largely to some guy named Tiger she gets to call "Uncle." The 23-year-old won her first event earlier this month at the Australian Ladies Masters, which is co-sanctioned by the European and Australian women's tours. While the victory has brought her talents to the forefront, it has also allowed Woods a chance to showcase her sense of humor on social media. And that's a win for everyone.
