Y.E. Yang's victory over Tiger Woods means one thing - Time to ban South Koreans
For the past decade or so, South Korean golfers have been a dominant presence on the LPGA Tour. With roughly three dozen South Korean women in the LPGA, tournaments can often become a battle solely between S. Korean ladies.
Carolyn Bivens believed that the South Korean domination of the LPGA Tour was bad for the game, and went as far as suggesting that all South Korean women learn and speak English so they could draw more fans and sponsors. Bivens, of course, was fired not long after.
Now, however, the South Korean men have decided to show up. With Y.E. Yang’s historic victory over Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship, no longer can South Korean men be ignored in professional golf.
Of course, for American golf fans, nothing could be worse. Woods - who receives 90 percent of all air time during golf tournaments - was supposed to win this thing. He was supposed to take a step closer to Jack Nicklaus’s all-time record for majors. Instead, he fell apart, fighting anger, frustration, and even flat-out miss-hitting a ball. All the while Yang calmly put together a magnificent 70.
While Yang was a deserving and appreciated winner, the fact is that we can not allow the PGA Tour to begin emulating the LPGA Tour. We American golf fans expect Tiger Woods to win big golf tournaments. If not Tiger, then Phil. Or hell, even Zach Johnson.
Because, in the end, if we aren’t careful, Yang will soon be joined by more South Koreans who rightly believe they can win on the PGA Tour. And we just can’t have that. It’s time to ban the South Koreans. Before they win everything in golf.

You must be new here.
Willie is being sarcastic; you know, he is using a little "tongue in cheek" humor.
He doesn't believe that nonsense any more than you do.
