Hee Kyung Seo Should Never Be Called ... That ... Again

Hee Kyung Seo

Many, many of the stories - most of them, in fact - about Hee Kyung Seo make mention of her nickname. And why not? That nickname is "Supermodel of the Fairways." But it turns out Seo hates that nickname. In a Q&A with LPGA.com, Seo said this:

Honestly, I am not totally comfortable being referred to as the "Supermodel of the Fairway." When I won for the first time in Korea, I didn’t have any nicknames. I think I got the nickname because I am pretty tall for an Asian woman. Here, on the LPGA Tour, I see many tall model looking players and I feel some pressure to live up to my nickname.


Any golfer who doesn't like her nickname - or anyone who doesn't like a nickname - should no longer be called by that name. Common courtesy. So while Seo certainly is as pretty as a supermodel, the mention of that nickname up above is the last time we'll use it here on Golf Babes.

Now we just need to come up a nickname Seo actually likes ...
