This year’s defending champion Jenny Shin will have her work cut out to try and hold onto the LPGA Texas Shootout trophy for another year.
Shin, who was born in Korea, but moved to America at the age of nine will need to produce the form she did last year to win her maiden LPGA Tour title.
Once again, there are talented players littered all over the field, but nonemoreso than So Yeon Ryu. Ryu has been in incredible form in recent months, which was topped off by her controversial yet deserving victory at the ANA Inspiration a few weeks ago. Sung Hyun Park is gradually settling into LPGA Tour life and it feels like she will burst onto the scene sometime soon.
Like every week on the LPGA Tour, there are an endless amount of potential Korean winners. I’m just one person, who has a full time job and is trying to cover Korean golf all across the globe, so I’m sure you know who I’m talking about, look 👆. No need to elaborate on, until she wins this week…Oh, don’t rule out two time winner Inbee Park also…😉
There are two cuts to get through this week. Your typical one after 36 holes, but also after 54 holes the field will be cut to 50 and ties, aka shootout…
First up, I suppose I better say hello and thank you for visiting my website, whoever you are. I teach, I write, I caddy, I write, I travel, I write. Mostly, about golf if that interests you. Usually interviews for various publications and blog about my caddy adventures.
