Se Ri Pak

Perhaps the most surprising thing I've seen in the lead-up to the 2008 U.S. Women's Open is that Se Ri Pak is in the second group off on Thursday morning, playing with Jill McGill and Kelli Kuehne. Way to disrespect one of the greats of the game, USGA!

The lovely and talented Se Ri deserves better. And "talented" is a bit of an understatement, isn't it? She's a U.S. Open champion, a five-time major winner, a Hall of Famer, one of the all-time greats. And the fact that Se Ri is one of the nicest people out there, well, that shouldn't be overlooked, either.

And I mean no disrespect to McGill or Kuehne, whom I admire as fine players, fine professionals and fine people. But between them they have only a handful of wins, no majors. Se Ri has been struggling this year, and it's as if, with this grouping, the USGA is saying, "here, let's put her with two other players who have no chance of winning."

Shame on you, USGA. Se Ri Pak deserves better.

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.
