Check out Eric's report at Seoul Sisters.com on the SBS Ladies Open. Hee Kyung Seo (-8) not only beat Ji-Yai Shin (-2) soundly, but also Inbee Park (-6), So Yeon Ryu (-4), Ha Neul Kim (-4), Birdie Kim (-3), Song-Hee Kim (-3), Gloria Park (-2), Hee Young Park (E), Eun-Hee Ji (+3), and In-Kyung Kim (+3), among other KLPGA and LPGA stars who figured a 2-week layoff was just too long.
Which raises 2 thoughts. First, how can anyone look at the photos Eric posted and think, "these girls have no personality"? Second, where are the Americans taking advantage of the layoff to increase their global exposure? Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis usually play a couple of extra times a year on the JLPGA, but besides them off the top of my head I can only think of Aussie Anna Rawson who's gone East (she got a top 10 at a KLPGA event earlier this year).
