President Donald Trump plugs New Jersey golf club, US Women’s Open winner in South Korea speech

President Donald Trump couldn't help himself. Even a world away from his frequent golf spots in New Jersey and the D.C. area, Trump had to work in a plug for his golf clubs in front of the South Korean assembly.

Speaking in front of elected representatives in the South Korean parliament, Trump spoke on a variety of subjects, including excoriating and threatening the North Korean regime, as well fluffing up and complimenting the South Korean people for creating a humming economic engine. Part of that buttering up came while talking about Sung Hyun Park, the new world No. 1 golfer who won her first major championship at Trump National Golf Club in July when she took the US Women's Open.

“Korean golfers are some of the best on Earth,” Trump said. “In fact, and you know what I’m going to say, the Women's US Open was held this year at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., and it just happened to be won by a great Korean golfer."

Sung Hyun Park won, and she's the new world No. 1, making history in reaching the pinnacle of the Rolex Rankings by doing so in her rookie LPGA campaign.

However, the Korean dominance at the US Women's Open at Trump's place in New Jersey extended well beyond the trophy presentation. Of the top 10 players on the final leaderboard at Trump National, eight were from South Korea. The others were Shanshan Feng of China and Carlota Ciganda from Spain.
