It's win No. 1 for Frances Bondad on the Ladies European Tour. Bondad claimed victory at the 2011 Sanya Ladies Open in China, birdying the final hole to secure the win.
Bondad is a 23-year-old from Australia who is in her fourth season on the LET. She's come close before, tying as runner-up at the 2010 Open de Espana Femenino. In 2008, she finished just inside the Top 100 on the money list. But in 2009 Bondad moved up to 39th and in 2010 finished 26th. It's the eighth Top 10 finish of her career to date.

It's that time of year again: Time for the Golf Digest Japan Paula Creamer calendar. Paula is very popular in Japan (OK, she's very popular everywhere), and she has spoken often about her own love for Japan. Every year since 2007, Creamer and Golf Digest Japan have gotten together to create a wall calendar, which, alas, is always available for purchase in Japan only. (But keep an eye on eBay if you want one, copies occasionally show up there.)
If you are in Japan and want a 2012 Creamer calendar, or if you are outside of Japan and want to see a few more sample images, see this page on the GDJ website. You must be able to read Japanese if you want info, however (the only English words on the page are "Please note no oversease shipping allowed.")
