Jiyai Shin - The Final Round Queen Wins Evian Masters

Just a few weeks after an emergency appendectomy, Jiyai Shin is once again living up to her nickname.

She grabbed her seventh LPGA victory at the Evian Masters today with a nine-foot putt on the last hole, finishing one shot ahead of Morgan Pressel, Choi Na Yeon and Alexis Thompson.

The win will likely place the the spirited South Korean back on top again in the rapidly changing Rolex Rankings.

Oh... and as if being a golf champion wasn't enough, Jiyai Shin also happens to be a gospel singer and released her first CD earlier this year. The video above is a fan tribute set to one of her songs. I don't understand Korean but it sounds pretty awesome to me.


  1. If people miss the GC coverage, here's my not-quite-live blog of the last 6 holes!

  2. Well, I WAS enjoying it till I just found out who won.

    Goodbye, Evian, hello Yankee game.

    I do suggest such posts begin with Spoiler Alert.

  3. Jiyai is amazing! I don't understand Korean either but I love the song. It sounds so happy.

  4. Great tournament. Definitely a clutch putt for Jiyai on 18... and how about Alexis Thompson!!!

  5. A great finish without a doubt. A ton of intriguing storylines in the final round, and that made this a very enjoyable final round. Congrats to Jiyai on the win, and Thompson on a spectacular round!

  6. I didn't get to see it this weekend so I appreciate the update. I was too busy battling another AWESOME Korean golfer/friend at my course for our championship. She beat me–again. I need to learn "You're going down in 2011!" in Korean. :o)
