So my nearest to hometown event ends with a tenth straight bummer. Just so we are clear: in my entire life, I never attended an event won by Se Ri Pak, or Inbee, or Grace Park, or So Yeon Ryu, or In Gee Chun, or Jin Young Ko or Lucky Six. But I have attended THREE events won by Henderson. What did I do to offend the golf gods?
I have been lucky to watch my favorites win. Saw So Yeon win on the Cactus Tour her first win as a professional. Also at the ANA and Meijer Classic. Jin Young Ko the ANA and Bank of Hope.
I have had success too, I am 2 for 2. Inbee (Sei Young runner up) at Westchester, and Namdalla (Hye Jin Choi runner up) at Bedminster. Statistically, watching a Korean win on the LPGA is supposed to be easy! Unlucky is the Seoul sisters fan who misses out.
All that bad karma for slighting MHL doesn't wash off easily. Can I pile on too?! Four-for-four at the USWO, 2015 KPMG, 2012 WAPL (Kyung Kim), ShopRite (SH Lee, Inky and Annie), Junior Namdalla at 2016 USGJ and USWA, SY Yoo at the Match Play, Ji Young Oh at UMCC, and low medalist (HK Seo, Grace Na and Annie) at USWO qualifiers. Oh yeah, throw in Kabin Choi at the AJGA/KJ Choi two weeks ago.
