Congratulations to So Yeon Ryu. First, she was the 2011 U.S. Women's Open winner. Then, she was the 2012 LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year. And now, she's a college graduate.

So Yeon attended her graduation ceremony on Monday in Korea at Yonsei University, from which she now holds a degree in Sports Business. Ryu was a junior at the time of her U.S. Open victory, and has completed her studies since then while balancing life as a professional golfer. Yonsei is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Korea, located in Seoul.
