Work ethic key to Asian golfers at US Women's Open

Posted:

 

KOHLER, Wis. (AP) -- Herbert Kohler Jr. points to Se Ri Pak's victory at Blackwolf Run in 1998 as a landmark moment that transformed women's golf.

   With the Kohler Co.-owned course hosting another U.S. Women's Open this week, the company's chairman and CEO says a wave of Asian-born players who were inspired by Pak's victory are teaching American golfers a lesson about the value of hard work.

   In an interview with The Associated Press, Kohler says: "These Asians have done so well because they know the meaning of work." He says American players "have now seen what the Asians can do, and they're starting to work."

   Kohler believes the work ethic he sees in Asian-born golfers is the reflection of a cultural attitude that exists beyond the golf course.
