After winning the season finale on the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour for the fifth time in four years and nine months, Hee Young Yang, 34, will head to the LPGA Tour’s Qualifying (Q) Series, which begins next month.

This is not Yang’s first time competing in the Q Series.

She will caddie for her friend and longtime LPGA Tour teammate Jennifer Song, an American expatriate, LPGA.com reported on Tuesday.

Born in the U.S. while her father was a visiting professor, Song finished high school in South Korea but became a U.S. citizen after graduating from the University of Southern California (USC). Her Korean name is Song Min-young.

Jennifer Song finished second on the money list on the secondary tour in 2010 and made the LPGA Tour the following year, but she has yet to taste victory.

This year, she finished 155th on the money list and 149th in CME Globe Points and lost her tour card for next year. She will need to finish in the top 20 in the Q-Series to play on the LPGA Tour again.

When Jennifer Song, who beat Bae, asked Yang to caddie for her in the Q-Series, Yang didn’t hesitate to say yes, LPGA.com reported.

She explained that she was happy to help her friend in the toughest event of the year, the Q-Series.

Unlike other players who usually use local caddies, it will be interesting to see how Jennifer Song’s choice to have a veteran player with 80 top-10 finishes and five wins on the LPGA Tour will turn out. 파워볼사이트
