2010 Rookies : Mariajo Uribe



Number two of The Colombians. And her name is Mariajo Uribe, yet until recently she when by the name Maria Jose Uribe. This young lady, only 19 years of age, looks like a rising super star, who won the US Womens Amateur 2007 when she was just 17. Her Priority Status is 11, and we well be seeing her in full LPHA action in 2010. Maria is 5 foot 6 inches, and used to play with Tiffany Joh at the same school.

Below are 5 articles and one video.... which is really 4 videos, (1 short version and a long version in 3 parts.... over an hour for the full video), and it is produced in Columbia, and has no English in it.

(1) This a picture and short article of when Maria won the 2007 AM. Golf Babes: Mariajo Uribe

(2) This is the USLA golf bio of Maria. Player Bio: Maria Jose Uribe - UCLA OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE

(3) Another article of her win in 2007. Golf | Golf Roundup | Uribe capitalizes to win Women's Am | Seattle Times Newspaper

(4) This is a LET article, (Dec 2009), titled 'Maria Jose Uribe Flying'. María José Uribe flying the Colombian flag

(5) This a few questions and answers from Maria, when she was playing in the July 2009 US Womens Open Championship. ASAP Sports - Golf - 2009 - U.S. WOMEN'S OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP - July 11 - Maria Jose Uribe

(6) The videos. One short and 3 long. Short version first, then parts 1+2+3 that is a special done on Mariajo Uribe, (part 1 = 7 1/2 mins, part 2= 10 mins, and part 3 = 7 1/2 mins.

Short : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmaRIiSrUFw

Part 1 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng3JZs19Wa8

Part 2 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWNxd...eature=related

Part 3 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg0P_vKcytc

End.

I don't care how great a prospect she is,or how great a golfer she might become,I refuse,now and forever,to refer to her as Mariajo Uribe.

I'm stubborn like that...

That you well have to take up with her.

As for young superstar phenoms in this years Rookies, have a check on young (19 year old) Mina Harigae, (who's story I am working on next - its a very long one), but here is a taste about her when she was just 12 in grade 6 and only 90 lbs, (in an article printed in May 13 2002 by Kelley King), titled 'Fiendly Fire', (it is 3 pages long - just click the continuation links at the bottom of the article). And she is the real deal, with 3 wins on the DFT in 2009. Don't be fooled by this ones great smile.... her motto is 'out to win'.

She's a superb player, I followed her in the 3rd round of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational and I must say I was amazed by her short game.
