Seri Pak (Samsung electronic) enters for the US LPGA, Giant Eagle Classic(total prize :one million ) to break through the million dollar- prize and to gain the fourth victory for the season. Seri Pak, who won three times for this season, has been ranked the third place in the total amount of prize ($958992). If she adds 150 thousands dollars by winning the championship of Giant Eagle Classics, she would be entitled a “million dollar player” for the third time, after Anikka Sorenstam (Sweden) and Carry Webb(Australia). If Seri Pak wins this game, she can also expect to gain the greatest number of victories and the maximum amount of the total prize for this year. This is the best result for her compared to that of 1998 and 1999. Seri Pak has a good memory of the Giant Eagle Classic since she won the championship in 1998, the fourth victory of the season for her. This game is also a great chance for Seri Pak because her formidable foe, Anikka Sorenstam and Webb(the first and second total prize winners) are not participating because of the British open for women, the last major game of this season.

It is also notable that seven other Korean women golfers except Seri Pak are participating in the Giant Eagle Classic: Mihyun Kim(KTF) Heewon Han(Fila Korea), Jangneong( Jinus) Sooyeon Kang, Heejung Park, and Minsun Yoe. It is also interesting to see if Dorothy Della Shin(US), who had beaten Jeeun Park and became a rising star, can achieve the second victory through this game.
