The KLPGA Is Back!

Check out Eric's report at Seoul 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).

Creamer was at the US Open earlier this week, presumably watching her buddies Nicole Vaidisova and James Blake. Gulbis played in Japan just a couple weeks ago, finishing T37. Who told me about that? How about YOU, TC? How soon we forget!

More like bad writing--I was trying to give Creamer and Gulbis credit for going to Asia, but it came off as implying that only Rawson has gone!

Added in a "besides them" for clarity. Thanks for pointing out how the older version of that last sentence read to everyone else in the world but me!
