Ha Na Jang Shines in Singapore

How about that Ha Na Jang?  She breezed her way to a second win this year at the HSBC Champions in Singapore, making an eagle on the last hole to add the exclamation mark to a wonderful week of golf.

This young lady seems destined to be a big star in the women's game; and what's not to love about this smiling, bubbly young lady?  She's an absolute delight for the fans.  She's obviously delightful to play with as well, smiling, encouraging, and acknowledging her playing partners' good play. 

These Korean and Asian gals are really dominating the game.  Most of them seem to have the perfect attitude for the game, never seeming to lose their cool.  Of course our little Canadian gal, Brooke Henderson, had another pretty good finish and looks to be on her way to becoming the best player we've ever produced in the ladies' game.  And there was a rather dominating performance by a certain young American phenom, Lexi Thompson, last week, so I guess it isn't going to be all about the Asians as the women's game continues to grow.

What is abundantly clear is that the game can be fun and friendly, while played at a very high level.  You needn't put on a game face, and scowl your way around the links like certain players who's names don't have to be mentioned.  

I also love watching these women play because they constantly remind me that force doesn't have to be added to the equation when swinging the club.  They are a fine example to anyone who thinks you might need to add a little extra just prior to impact.  If these little gals can crank it out there 270 yards, with such little effort, maybe an old fart like me can do better by just swinging club.

These girls are good.
