The pressure will be too high on the top tier Koreans to win the Hana....look at how Sangmoon choked/chunked his chip on 18 in front of his countrymen.
If it's gonna be a Korean to win...The Smiling Buddha thinks it will be a Korean who kinda 'flies under the radar"....like....Chella Choi or SYK.
My Dark Horse will be MW...she has played well here and I think she's inspired to play in her country of heritage. I wonder if she wants to get out of dodge quickly in Incheon when it comes time to signing autographs......as often seen here in North America.
I wonder how much Hite beer they think In Gee is going to help sell in the states next year. I notice she was wearing the Jinro label at the Japan Open and I know they are trying to break into the US market w/ their Jinro label Soju. She'd probably have to win about 10 US opens before I'd subliminally switch to drinking Soju.
Well, well...look who came out for the 2015 HanaBank Festivities. South Korean stars of the game continue to do big things on the LPGA tour, but for me it's always wonderful to see the original big 3...Se Ri, Peanut and, of course, Grace...ah, the memories.
