Hee Young Park



Hee Young Park claimed her second career win on the LPGA Tour at the 2013 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, and she did it in recordsetting fashion. Or, rather, record-tying fashion.

Park and Angela Stanford finished 72 holes tied at 26-under-par 258, and then Hee Young won with a birdie on the third playoff hole. It's Park's second LPGA win, after the 2011 CME Titleholders, but her ninth career victory as a professional (six wins in Korea plus one win on the Ladies Asian Tour).

About that record business: Both Park and Stanford now share the LPGA's all-time 72-hole scoring record of 258. That mark was first established by Karen Stupples in 2004, and Park and Stanford are the first golfers to match it since. Park and Stanford also came within a stroke of tying the tour's all-time record for most strokes under par. Annika Sorenstam holds that record at 27-under, set in 2001.

So a pretty good week for "Rocket," Hee Young Park!

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
