Inbee's fiance playing 'captain' for South Korea


OWINGS MILLS, Md. – There are no captains for these International Crown teams, leading to much speculation about how pairings and other decisions are being made within the four-player rosters.

The South Koreans apparently have an unofficial captain who’s not on the roster.

“I think Inbee’s fiancé is our team leader,” said So Yeon Ryu.

Inbee Park’s fiancé, Gi Hyeob Nam, is also her swing coach.

“We were playing together, and then Inbee's fiance was there for Inbee's coach, but he kind of like set it up, like all the planning, kind of thing,” Ryu said. “So I would say our captain is not me, not Na Yeon or Inbee or I.K., just Inbee's fiance.”
