Images For Android Phones: Pop-Art Meets 2012 US Women’s Open Champion – Na Yeon Choi

 

Na Yeon Choi

What a fantastic victory for the 24 year old South Korean, Na Yeon Choi. Poise, skill and some rather good luck led her to her first US Major Championship. It was a difficult course depleting most of the opposition. She and fellow Korean, Amy Yang were the only two competitors to finish under-par. Yes without a doubt Na Yeon Choi is my favorite female athlete. You go Girl!

Na Yeon Choi takes a swing.


It was an exciting weekend at the Kraft Nabisco Championship this past weekend. The dramatic finished was a crushing blow for In Kyung Kim. But congrats to Sun Young Yoo for the win. And a shout out to my favorite, World # 2 Na Yeon Choi who finished T8 at 6 under par. Check out these 2 interviews with Choi.

Fairways and Forehands

Sun Young Yoo took the leap into Poppie’s Pond following her win at the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship. She also takes a leap 22 places up the Rolex Rankings to land at #15. After her heartbreaking missed 1-footer Sunday, In Kyung Kim takes small solace in a 7 place jump to #5 in the world.
