On Sunday, around 500 spectators shouted curses and threw water bottles for about 50 minutes at a golf resort hosting an LPGA tournament in Kyongju. They demanded a refund of their entrance fees and transportation costs after the contest was suspended for a third day because of strong winds. One of the spectators even flashed an obscene hand gesture and verbally threatened a foreign golfer who had come out to sign autographs. Fearing for their safety, the LPGA golfers left the club in a hurry.Whoa there. No, no...they just love their LPGA golf!
Contest officials say they were just following regulations when they delayed and canceled the matches because of sudden showers and lightning storms. The spectators who attend matches also know the rules. Those golfers will talk about the violence displayed by Korean spectators as they travel around the world. This is a tremendous embarrassment.
Both the unionists and the spectators have abandoned their sense of order and dignity. They are behaving as they please. Korea has become a chaotic place where violence reigns.
