Memo to Carolyn Bivens: Make Koreans on LPGA Tour wear bikinis while they learn English
Remember Jan Stephenson, the original poster girl for the LPGA?
She’s the one who said years ago the LPGA Tour should restrict foreigners, especially the Koreans, who even then were dominating on U.S. soil.
LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens hasn’t gone that far yet. Bivens is making news this week by coming up with a rule that all LPGA players must speak English by 2009.
Stephenson said she would take it much further.
“If I were commissioner I would have a quota on international players and that would include a quota on Asian players,” Stephenson told Golf magazine in 2003.
Stephenson, of course, was also known for insisting the LPGA sex itself up. She sure did her part, posing in that famous photo where she’s nude in a bathtub. Actually, she wasn’t completely au naturel.
“I had on a little bikini bottom and two round pieces of cardboard discreetly covering my nipples,” she told GOLF.com.
Look, I know you’re going to google that picture. I’ll save you some steps. Here it is.
Maybe if the Koreans took Stephenson’s advice and posed nude or semi-nude, cardboard or not, nobody would care if they can’t speak English.

You're a racist but you will continue be more of an idiot than a racist.
I've spoken with Jan at several tournaments, and I can say with 100% confidence that she speaks 'conversational English' just FINE....and looks DAMMMM GOOD doing so! ;)
You really have the lowest self esteem and
expectation of all. You must be a very
desperate man. Jan Stevenson has more
disgusting wrinkles than the California
Btw, ESPN article reported that LPGA's
greatest source of TV revenue comes from
Korean TV, then Japanese TV. Nice Job
LPGA. When LPGA goes to CA for the
Samsung Invitational, will Bivens require
Americans to speak Korean. I don't think
