Ha-Neul Kim Leads After 1st Round Of 2013 US Women’s Open

Don’t be surprised to see Ha-Neul Kim’s name atop the leaderboard after round 1 of the 2013 US Women’s Open. She might not be as well known to casual American fans, but to diehard women’s golf fans, particularly those who are familiar with the KLPGA, Kim is well known as a 7-time Korean tour winner. She earned her way into the field at Sebonack by winning the 2012 KLPGA Money List, a title she also won in 2011. I generally don’t write too much after the opening round of LPGA events. There is so much that can happen over the course of 72 holes. Tournaments aren’t won on the first day. That said, Inbee Park spent most of the day headlining the field at 5-under until Ha-Neul made her move. Inbee is trying to make it 3 Majors played, 3 Majors won in 2013 after winning both the Kraft Nabisco Championship and Wegmans LPGA Championship. If that happens, I hope that mainstream sports outlets give her the proper respect an accomplishment of that magnitude would deserve. Forger Tiger, Phil or Rory, if ANY player on the PGA had won The Masters and the US Open, they’d get reverential coverage going into the Open Championship at Muirfield. If they won, they’d be godlike. But I am getting ahead of things. Inbee has a long way to go to win this event, although she has put herself in great position. As a side note, Inbee and Ha-Neul and Inbee are friends and even teamed up earlier this year for the Mission Hills tournament in China, winning the team competition.
