first_imgANN ARBOR, Mich. – The race to Rio is playing out all over the globe with athletes competing for coveted spots. On the LPGA, the competition among a slew of talented South Korean players to compete in Olympic golf this summer is particularly intense. ”To think someone could be the ninth best player in the world, but might not be able to make the Olympic team from Korea, that’s pretty amazing,” LPGA commissioner Mike Whan said Wednesday. If the team was set now, that would happen because no more than four players from a country can play. Ha Na Jang is No. 9 in the world ranking, but trails four fellow South Koreans: No. 2 Inbee Park, No. 4 Sei Young Kim, No. 7 In Gee Chun and No. 8 Amy Yang. Jang, who hasn’t played in an LPGA event in a month, is not in the field this week in the inaugural Volvik Championship at Travis Pointe Country Club. And, she isn’t expected to return until the KPMG Women’s PGA in two weeks. Jang’s break might be tied to an attention-grabbing situation in Singapore on the way to the HSBC Champions. Her father lost control of a traveling bag that tumbled down an escalator and hit Chun in the lower back, forcing her to withdraw from some events. Jang then won the tournament and moved ahead of Chun in the ranking, bumping Chun to fifth among South Koreans. Chun has forgiven Jang’s father, saying it was simply an accident, but her parents didn’t seem to be happy with Jang’s apology. On the course, the competition creates another source of drama. So Yeon Ryu is among five more South Koreans ranked between Nos. 11 and 21. ”It’s hard to get into the Olympics for Koreans because so many great players within the top 15,” said Ryu, who is ranked No. 11. ”It is better than to think about my golf rather than to keep an eye on each other.” That’s probably wise. It also might be the right thing to say, allowing veterans such as Se Ri Pak, who plans to retire after this year, to be more forthcoming about the first chance a golfer has had to be an Olympian since 1904. ”Our country is so focused on Olympic competition,” Pak said, taking a break from hitting balls on the range. ”It doesn’t get any bigger for a Korean athlete than to compete for our country in the Olympics. There’s a lot of pressure on our young Koreans to make the team because we have so many great players over here.” Whan travels all over the world to promote a tour that is televised in more than 170 countries and territories, giving him a unique perspective for an U.S.-based sports executive. ”A lot of folks in America maybe take for granted the importance of the Olympics,” he said. ”You hear the term ‘podium sports’ a lot when you’re traveling around Asia. The government views sports where you might stand on a podium and your flag gets raised as big events. … In my seven years, I’ve never seen players so aware of where they stand in the Rolex World Rankings. It’s been fun to see how much they care about representing their country.” After Ryu at No. 11, then Hyo Joo Kim (No. 14), Bo Mee Lee (No. 16), Sung Hyun Park (No. 18) andNa Yeon Choi (No. 21) and all have a chance to compete for their country in Rio. ”I feel bad for the Koreans,” Hall of Famer Beth Daniel said. ”Some of them could be among the top 15 in the world, and that might not be good enough for them to make the Olympics.”last_img read more

first_imgNAPLES, Fla. – Rolex world No. 1 Jin Young Ko isn’t sure how her injured left ankle will hold up this week as she looks to finish off a historic season. “Still a little worried,” she said Tuesday during her news conference at the CME Group Tour Championship. A $1.5 million first-place check is up for grabs in the LPGA’s season finale. It’s the richest winner’s check in the history of women’s golf. Ko felt pain in her ankle finishing off the first round of the Taiwan Swinging Skirts event three weeks ago, in her last start before coming to Naples. She withdrew in the middle of the third round because of the pain. “I’m hopefully getting better,” Ko said. Ko may need some extra strength to push the wheelbarrow full of hardware she’s lined up to win this week. She won’t have to wait until the final putt drops Sunday at the CME Group Tour Championship to begin hauling in all the awards and honors. LPGA commissioner Mike Whan got it all started Tuesday, handing Ko the trophy for most top-10 finishes this season. Her four victories, two of them major championships, were among her 12 top-10s this year. World No. 1 Ko bothered by injured ankle CME Group Tour Championship: Full-field tee times | Full coverage “Get used to holding trophies,” Whan told Ko. “It’s going to be a big night on Thursday.” That’s the night of the Rolex LPGA Awards Dinner. Ko has already won the Rolex Annika Major Award and clinched the Rolex Player of the Year Award. She’s poised to add the Vare Trophy for low scoring average and the LPGA money title. She’s looking to join Ariya Jutanugarn as the only players to sweep all those awards as the Rolex world No. 1. “She’s a really solid player,” world No. 3 Nelly Korda said. “Amazing on the putting green. I’m always at awe with her short game.” That appears to be the last piece Ko needed to become the best player in the women’s game. Ko has trimmed nearly a stroke off her scoring average from last year. She won the Rolex Rookie of the Year Award last season with a 69.81 scoring average. She’s at 69.05 so far this year with a chance to join Annika Sorenstam as the only players to win the Vare Trophy for low scoring with an average better than 69 strokes for the season. Ko is one of the best ball-strikers in the women’s game. She led the tour in hitting greens in regulation last year and leads it again this year. The big difference in her scoring average has come in her short game and putting. After tying for 69th at the CME Group Tour Championship last year, Ko stayed in Naples determined to improve her short game, a weakness in her all-around skills. She brought in Gareth Raflewski, a short-game and putting specialist, and they worked together in a boot-camp style regimen. “We worked together every day for two weeks,” Raflewski said. He also works with the Jutanugarn sisters and Lydia Ko. “We changed her putter and her setup,” Raflewski said. “Her chipping was one dimensional. She couldn’t hit it high, couldn’t spin it or bump and run it. I taught her so many different shots.” Raflewski said the changes required some stubborn determination to master. “At the beginning, she said, `I’m not getting this at all,’” Raflewski said. “But now, she owns all those shots. She doesn’t just have all the shots. She knows when to hit them, what to do in every situation. She’s using all of her own instincts now.” Players competing against Ko see it. “I’ve played with her quite a bit, and she’s just overall such a great player,” Lexi Thompson said. “Very consistent, and not many weaknesses. There really isn’t. Just consistent off the tee. Very straight. And her short game is unbelievable.” It’s why Ko will walk away with all those trophies this week. And, if her ankle holds up, possibly a $1.5 million check, too.last_img

first_img 20-year-old Brazilian Allan spent last season at Hertha 1 Hertha Berlin have no intention of taking Liverpool youngster Allan on a new loan deal, despite the Reds dropping their financial demands.The 20-year-old Brazilian spent last season at the Bundesliga side, making 16 appearances in all competitions.However, despite Liverpool dropping all demands for another loan stint, Hertha are not interested in the Reds youngster.So much so that, according to Bild, they would even refuse to keep Allan on loan if Liverpool completely subsidised the deal, meaning the midfielder cost the club nothing to re-sign.Hertha are intent on giving their homegrown youngsters more opportunities within the first team, with 18-year-old Arne Maier starting to impress.As such, Liverpool will have to make alternative arrangements for Allan this summer as they look to again send the midfielder out on loan.last_img read more
