I think they said on recent LPGA broadcast that Inky sold her house in San Diego and has an attitude of wanting to travel. I guess that means she's living out of a suitcase indefinitely, right? There's a gap between Kingsmill and Shop-Rite...will she play another foreign event?
BTW, have you ever seen an old pic of Chie Arimura? Her teeth were a 9-1-1...had a major cap job about three years.
I assume these are the big names assembled on stage. The first three in the front row (L - R) appear to be Mi Jeong Jeon, Mika Miyazato, and Teresa Lu.
This last one needs some explaining. Taylor Swift is taking part in her "1989" Tour in Japan this week. Jessica Korda tagged her on Twitter, saying that she should be going to the concert. Taylor actually reached out to Korda and invited her personally to the show. From Jessica's Twitter:
Another unexpected guest: In Gee Chun (right) with Ai Miyazato
It's cool that In Gee has been spreading her wings this year: four LPGA events, and now a JLPGA Major. I hope to heck she doesn't win this week, though. If she earns a tour card here, she'll be awfully tempted to go play in Japan next season, and I still haven't gotten over losing Ha Neul to the JLPGA. Inky, she could really use a Major title, so I'm pulling for her this week.
I checked the SBS Golf sked one more time and they are NOT showing this event...but I'll look later in the week if they change it.
Via Google Translate, here's the Japan TV schedule from the JLPGA website (local times):
