Jennifer Song is the 2009 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links champion. Song defeated Kimberly Kim in the championship match, 7 and 6. Song was the runner-up in the '08 Women's Publinx.

Song was born in Michigan but grew up in Korea and has dual citizenship. That allowed her to be a member of the Korean National Team while also serving as an alternate on the 2008 American Curtis Cup squad. (Which begs the question - will she play for the East or West team in a future Lexus Cup?)

Song recently completed her freshman season on the Southern Cal women's golf team, and it was a good one: She was named national Freshman of the Year by the National Golf Coaches Association. Song led the USC team in scoring average, was named first-team All-American, and finished the season ranked No. 1 in the Golfweek collegiate rankings.
