Here is my music video for the final round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpnOu6sehjg

I put it in the Seon Hwa thread by request, although it probably should go in the tournament thread...it has plenty of shots of Annika, Morgan and others.

Shrink video window one size for better picture clarity using the shaded rectangular box beneath the video window.

This one's for the girls!! :D

Just a thought -- do you think when Annika won the Mizuno Classic in Japan do you think any of the Asian boards wrote -- wonderful golf --excellent swing -- but needs work on her Japanese?
To me all that matters is how they play golf -- sort of speaking with their game. And to me Seon Hwa Lee spoke perfectly especially with her wonderful smile.

NCharles, I agree. It's sometimes hard for even those of us whose native language is English to express ourselves. I can't see why anyone would want to diminish a great tournament by something as petty as her lack of ability to speak a strange language perfectly.

Well said NCharles78 ... IĀ“m much more amazed at the Ā“bottleĀ“of these first time Koreans on Sunday than their English speaking ability .... is anybody counting how many Korean first time winners there have been over the last 15 or sixteen months ..... who was the last European first time winner ? ..... I need to check some stats ....

I think it is eight Korean first time winners over the last full year ..2005.. and so far this year ..... no Europeans over the same period ..... I think Karen Stupples was the last in 2004 ..... then again she has great English .... needs to work on her Korean though.
