Two weeks ago in Arkansas, I had lunch with Jiyai Shin after her practice round. We talked about a little bit of everything, from the 90 pairs of white pants she has between her closets in Georgia and South Korea to the homework she has for her physical education classes at Yonsei University in Seoul.
There’s a reason why Shin Ji-yai is dubbed by Korean media as the “final-round queen.” The 22-year-old South Korean lived up to her nickname at the Evian Masters on Sunday with another dramatic last-day victory charge. To top it off, she'll regain her No. 1 world ranking.
