To make more money? who cares. Sports in general are about performing to the best of one's abilities. not about sponsors. and after all, i'm sure they won't have a hard time getting korean sponsors if they speak korean.

When i drive on the highway and see the tiger woods billboard, he's not saying anything in english to me.

Like i understand offering english tutorials for those that want them, but don't fucking force someone to learn it when it's not needed to play the sport.

also, translators will be out of work. think of the translators!
LPGA is almost 90% located in English speaking areas....who cares about the sponsors...guess what hap[pens if there are no sponsors...
