She might have seriously under-achieved as a pro after her back-to-back U.S. Amateur wins. But she's back, baby. Facing a determined challenge from Henderson, Kang just did eactly what Wayne Gretzky told her to do. She just went out and won it. Is there a Gretzky factor here? Maybe; maybe not. But it can't hurt to have the greatest player ever in his sport give you permission to go out there and be the best in yours.
I can't help but think that this is just the beginning for this young lady. We ain't lookin' at no one-hit-wonder here.
