Hyo Joo Kim is back in Korea! She got a huge welcome from the press at the airport.
Among the news tidbits: she told the press she wants to spend her prize money on a new handbag for her mom. She also said that she would not play on the LPGA this season, but it seems unclear whether she will take the card for next season at this point. Presumably she'll talk it over with her family and sponsors and come to a decision later.
A big internet search topic this week has been 'Hyo Joo Kim's younger sister'. This was an attempt to locate more info about this young lady, who translated for Hyo Joo during many of her post-win interviews:
Actually, though, this is not Hyo Joo's younger sister. Rather, it is the 17 year old daughter of her coach. Her name is Soo Yang Ji, and she has been enrolled in an English language school for a while, hence her very good English skills. Came in handy having her along in France!
