Men threatened to kill LPGA player Danielle Kang at post-round dinner

Men threatened to kill LPGA player Danielle Kang at post-round dinner



LPGA Tour player Danielle Kang, her mother and a friend were the objects of death threats made by two men at a Rancho Mirage, Calif., restaurant after her third round at the ANA Inspiration.

Kang, who tweeted about the incident, was dining at Midori sushi restaurant on Saturday evening when two men apparently approached her and her party.

After opening with 75-67 to get in contention after two rounds of the ANA Inspiration, Kang shot 5-over 77 on Saturday at Mission Hills C.C. It's unclear why the men threatened Kang, her mother and friend, as well if the police arrested the men in addition to escorting Kang and her party away from the scene.

Kang, who turned pro in 2012 after winning back-to-back U.S. Women's Amateur titles in 2010 and '11, has one top-five finish so far this season. Her career-best LPGA finish is a T-3 effort at the 2012 Kingsmill Championship.
