Hee Young Park
Hee Young Park finished tied for 11th in the LPGA season opener in Thailand. A solid start to the year for one of the tour's up-and-coming players. Park finished 20th on the money list in 2009 after placing 35th in her rookie season of 2008. She had two runner-up finishes last year and is a good bet to get win No. 1 in 2010.
Hee Young got a little attention from Golfweek this week: Her photo was used in an article asking the question, "are shorts getting too short on the LPGA Tour?" The photo Golfweek used is slightly different than the one above, but the shorts are the same. Haven't we been down this road before? Several years back Seon Hwa Lee and Jeong Jang were targets of short-shorts complaints from certain prudish quarters. Both got more conservative as a result. Let's hope Hee Young doesn't fall for it, too. After all, you can bet the house that Natalie Gulbis isn't going to stop showing off her legs!
