    There is an interesting story for somebody to write about number of Asian and Asian-American women who are at the top of the LPGA compared to the number of Asian and Asian-American men at the top of the PGA.

    Well, an Asian-American man just won his 15th major, and it was his 81st PGA Tour victory, so we could start there.

    Yes, because one guy makes the whole story change.

    Go ahead and make the point you’d like to make then. I’ll wait.

    I have no clue what your point is. Was Tom Brady abusive to women when he cheated on his pregnant baby's mama? Was Bill Belichick abusive to women when he had sex with a married waitress receptionist and was sued by the husband?

    In the context of what @justgladtobehere posed, I don't think that's the same as Se Ri Pak inspiring a generation of Koreans that we're now seeing dominate the LPGA.

    Might want to check out the amateur ranks a little closer.

    We'll skip past Si Woo Kim and Hao Tong Li, who have already won on big tours.

    Brandon Wu just led Stanford to a National Championship and is playing in the US Open this week.

    Norman Xiong was the best golfer in the country while at Oregon two years ago.

    The next Tiger Woods? Give Norman Xiong some time

    Doug Ghim was the No. 1-ranked Amateur in the world last year, and was the low Am at last year's Masters.

    Colin Morikawa was the College Golfer of the Year this year and just turned pro. Also playing in the US Open this week.

    There is a big wave of amateur men of Asian heritage coming.

    I'm aware. The theoretical posed was about dominance on the Tours right now. We'll know the tables have been turned when some loudmouth makes a crack about the men's U.S. Open contenders all being a Wu or a Kim or a Li.

    I keep waiting to hear what the "very interesting" story would be about in the theoretical post. That South Korean women are good at golf and South Korean men aren't as good? Please pitch that story to me in a way that is "very interesting."
