Koreans represented at the Masters with a strong showing from Anthony Kim, KJ Choi and YE Yang. Anthony Kim came in 3rd place after a huge final day with 6 birdies and an eagle, posting a -12 before the final groups arrived. KJ Choi was partnered up with Tiger Woods for 4 straight days at the Masters and ended up with the same exact score with Tiger, for all four days. What are the chances?! KJ actually lead the tournament briefly in the middle of the round, but on hole #13 he fell apart with the first bogey of the day. YE Yang hung in there as he was partnered with Anthony Kim during the final round. KJ came in tied for 4th with Tiger Woods and YE Yang tied for 8th. That’s three Koreans in the top ten at the 2010 Masters! One of these days, one of these guys is going to break through and the champion’s dinner is going to have Korean bbq and kimchi. That’s going to be one big dry cleaning bill for all those green jackets.
ESPN finally published their “Body Issue” which shows athletes in their birthday suits. And yes there’s a Korean-American woman who bares it all. She is LPGA golfer Christina Kim, and she’s joined by other fellow golfers Anna Grzebien and Sandra Gal. The “Body Issue” is getting some great reviews because it’s done very artistically and it actually reveals not simply a nude body, but it shows some of the pain and hurt that these athletes have endured. The body is a beautiful thing. If you don’t know Christina Kim, she’s a Korean-American golfer who’s had great success on the LPGA tour. She’s one of the more personable and animated golfers on tour, and she’s willing to share her thoughts. She’s one of the most followed LPGA tour players on Twitter. For a little more on Christina Kim, check out our interview below when we met up with her at a LPGA tour event earlier this summer.
