Sandra Gal, Hee Young Park Perform Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy'

Beethoven's Ode to Joy, the final movement of the composer's Ninth Symphony, is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written. Sandra Gal and Hee Young Park are two of the greatest golfers in the world, and two people who, as is obvious from their social media accounts, love life. They are full of joy.

What better pairing than these two buddies combining their talents - Sandra on violin, "Rocket" on piano - on Ode to Joy?

This performance by what Sandra called the "Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra" took place in Gal's home recently, on the night of dinner that Sandra prepared for friends. Sandra posted a bit of their recital in two videos on Instagram:

Roll over, Beethoven, and tell Tchaikovsky the news: These girls rock!

Sandra shared on her Facebook page a preview of the dinner she was cooking this night:

And a photo of herself, Hee Young and Anna Nordqvist dining together:

Hey, wait a minute: Doesn't Anna play an instrument, too? Yes, she does, the violin. So why wasn't Anna taking part in the performance above, too? This tweet by Anna (retweeted by Gal) might provide a clue:

But maybe, if Anna practices, then the next time we see the Gal-Park Philharmonic Orchestra it will include Nordqvist, too.

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.
