Jin Young is too good to be true. My first impressions of her were so wrong. Because of the way she looks on course, I assumed she would be snobby and mean.
Jin Young is definitely not snobbish. She waves to me from the Fairway. The first English phrase she learned to greet people was "Hello how are you today".
I first met her at the ANA Inspiration, before she was an LPGA member. There was about a two hour rain delay. She was killing time practicing her short game. I asked her Caddie Dean to tell her that she was my favorite KLPGA golfer. She came over thanked me and signed a ball.
Since she hardly knew anybody but her Manager and Caddie. There were also two other people there. She spent most of the time practicing. Which may have tired her out. It's probably why she missed the cut.
Jin Young dropped out of Taiwan, and now her Instagram account is private. What gives? Was she getting blowback from the notorious Korean online community following her withdrawal, and she decided to withdraw from the public view for a little while as well?
Hope she's OK. You're cool, Jin Young, don't fret!
