So Yeon Ryu was named an ambassador (or ambassadress, if you like) by the KEB-HanaBank Championship. The elegant 2011 US Women’s Open champion has proven to be a great player since earning her way to the LPGA tour. That said, she is remains a huge star in Korea, where she won 8 KLPGA events. I generally just cover the LPGA and JLPGA (along with my regular tennis coverage), but I am a big KLPGA fan. After all, that’s where many of my favorites like Se Ri Pak came from originally. It’s just a matter of me not having enough free time to do LPGA, JLPGA, KLPGA and WTA. However, I will try to post more stories from South Korea. In addition to the ambassadorship, So Yeon Ryu also held a junior golf clinic.
