Both my ladies made the cut*, which is good. Still, they are not exactly blazing any trails to the top of the leader board.


*assuming I remember correctly who I selected
Let's Play 36
GHIN Handicap: 7.8 … 9.2 … Let’s just say I am around a 14!

I wonder what her name means in Thai (assuming Thai names have some connection to the original occupation or familial relationship with one's long ago ancestors?). Probably not what comes to my myopic Western mind.

Have no idea how their naming works but I love the Thai names. They must look at someone like Australia's Su Oh and think, "You call that a name?!"

The golf media is lucky that the top Thai player in the game today has a fairly easy name to handle, and that it's not someone like Kanphanitnan Muangkhumsakul, Sherman Santiwiwatthanaphong or Punpaka Phuntumabamrung who is making headlines all the time.

Tonyj5 burying a massive lede. Ha Na Jang didn't just win the tournament, she mounted one of the greatest buzzer-beater comebacks in LPGA history. The winning margin was created on the 71st and 72nd holes with an eagle and birdie. :facepalm

That's some real nice pickin there Dougie. You are the man. That's like, the fantasy golf equivalent of shooting a round in the low 60s. I was right behind you, I had Ariya and Minjee Lee, both T2. Most any other day, that's good enough to win.

Ha Na Jang didn't just win this tournament. She grabbed the bull by the horns. Seized the day. Threw caution to the wind. In doing so I think she singlehandedly inspired a whole nation of Aussie golf fans while also normalizing the professional Korean lady golfer, forever shattering its image as the mechanistic, stoic, soulless usurper of white womens' trophies and prize money.
