It's 2009 Already in Korea... least on the KLPGA, which kicked off its 2009 season with the China Orient Ladies Open last weekend. 2008 Rookie of the Year Hye Yong Choi went 65-71-69 for a 3-shot victory over 6-time winner "last" season Hee Kyung Seo. Shanshan Feng was the best Chinese player in the field, finishing 7 shots back in 5th place, but 1 ahead of Ha Neul Kim and 3 ahead of So Yeon Ryu.

2 immediate conclusions present themselves from these results: Feng is for real and likely to start the 2009 LPGA season well; the kids in the KLPGA are going to be all right in the post-Ji Yai Shin era.
