Tiffany Sung-Hee Joh is a promising young golfer, who has made her presence felt in women’s amateur and professional golf.

She was born in Philadelphia, PA and moved to San Diego, CA as a young child. She began playing golf at the age of 12 because her parents lived next to a golf course. She also credits her college coach, Carrie Forsyth as someone who greatly influenced her career.

Tiffany won the prestigious US Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship in both 2006 and 2008. Joh turned pro in 2009 following her graduation from UCLA. She won the ING New England Golf Classic in 2010 and competed in the U.S. Women’s Open Championship.

Why Golf is the Thinking Person’s Game

World Golf Hall of Famer Chi Chi Rodriguez once said, “Golf is a thinking man’s game. You can have all the shots in the bag, but if you don’t know what to do with them, you’ve got trouble”.

Nothing can better describe the game of golf than this statement from one of golf’s greats. There has been much said about golf being more of a mental game than a physical one. Yet, coaches and players emphasize training more than thinking.

Headline: Three wins by Scottish golfers in two weeks on major professional tours.  Sound like something worth writing about? The tour void left by Braveheart, a.k.a., Colin Montgomerie may signal a welcome sign of life from the Scots, but hardly the war cry of revolution.

Past months Triple Crown saw Scottish golf players Paul Lawrie and Sandy Lyle bringing home respective victories from the European Tour’s Open de Andalucia and ISPS Handa Senior World Championship. Then Scott Martin Laird earned his title at the PGA TOUR’s Bay Hill invitational.  Are these wins are a sign that Scottish professional golf has made a resurrection?
