I suspect bcoz power/distance isn't as big a factor for LPGA as for their PGA counterparts. Accuracy, putting and short game good already for the white/red tees. The only player who dominated with distance was yani, and now she's off form.

But the young Koreans are plenty long and already competing at the highest level. More than young Japanese and Indian. Latest Q school medallist is Korean. Then there are noh seung yul, kt Kim etc.

Try this:

Dedication
Talented
Structured training programmes
Good diets
Physically fit

And Koreans are known to practice until their hands bleed!!

I taught at a golf school in China. 70% were Korean. All of which have now turned pro.

I wonder if it will make a mockery of the LPGA if the Korean contigent exceeds 50% of LPGA. scratch If that happens, it may have to be renamed KLPGA and Korea to become the mahor sponsor. Laughing

NO WAY.......at this moment, majority of the sponsorship still lies in US.

More importantly there is always things LPGA USA can do to curb this fm happening. I dreamt that they are :

1. One member of the any natioinality needs to appear in FHM or Playboy magazine

2. The brand of equipment used or endorsed need to rhyme with either LEMONADE or Syphilis

the Thais are going to be a force......

there are 2 sisters - one just 18 and finished tied 1st on the LPGA Q-school.

LPGA Q-school final results

the younger one who has just turned 17 could not go to the LPGA because of her age so she did the next best thing and went to the LET Q-school instead...naturally she finished the top of her class and won easily by 5 strokes.

LET Q school final results

these are also 2 thais who can speak Cantonese cos her dad is one.

The Korean's are doing great on the LPGA, but they are not dominating.

21 Korean's made the top 80 on the 2012 money list. (25 American's)

They both won 8 tournaments apeice.

A great showing yes, dominating, No.
