Lived alongside the 5th fairway of our local golf club in high school, which is where my "true" love affair with the sport began, and it has continued for 40 years!

Donald Trumps’ Impact on The 2017 US Women’s Open

In a country that is heavily divided ideologically with controversy surrounding much of the most recent election, it’s hard to imagine how any of that would have to do with golf. If you are following the upcoming LPGA schedule, then you may already know that the 2017 Women’s U.S. Open is set to take place at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. This golf course was given the honor of hosting this event when Donald Trump was simply referred to as a business mogul and reality TV host. He is now the 45th President of the United States .....

Park had the same score as men's gold medalist Justin Rose with 72 holes at 16 under. The silver medal was won by Lydia Ko who holed a 7-foot birdie putt at the last hole, allowing her to finish 11 and under. Then, China's Shanshan Feng shot 69 for 10 and took the bronze. The Women's USA Olympic Golf Team sadly were just shy of the bronze.

Rio 2016 – Women’s Olympic Golf – Round 3

She now sits tied for 8th place going into Round 4, but Gerina Piller for the US captured the Bronze position.
