Candie Kung

candie kung picturesLet's hear it for the lovely and talented Candie Kung, who won the LPGA Hana Bank Kolon Championship in Korea on Sunday.

It's the fourth LPGA victory for Kung, but her first since 2003. Originally from Taiwan, Kung was the 1999 AJGA Player of the Year, she was a two-time All-American at Southern Cal, and she won the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links championship twice.

And Candie's LPGA career started fast; she posted five Top 10s in her rookie year of 2002, then won three times in 2003. She finished 17th on the money list in 2004 and 11th in 2005, but then kind of stalled out. In 2007, injuries limited her to just 15 starts and she fell to 78th on the money list.

But 2008 has been a comeback year for Candie. She had five Top 10s before heading to Korea, and now she has another victory.

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.
