Lost in translation

LPGA is going to enforce a minimum English language requirement for its players. There are 121 international players from 26 countries, including 45 from South Korea on the LPGA. Many of them have minimal English language skills.

Good move. Those international players are making nice living on American soil, should they at least learn a thing or two?  They should.  The LPGA is looking out for itself in the long term, before they start losing sponsors.  Money talks.  If the tour is being bankrolled by sponsors, they have every right to demand.    Geeesh, isn’t is unverisal thing that you learn the local lanaguage in order to work there?

I found it ridicules nowadays every company in the USA uses English/Spanish greeting. I’m sick of it, not mentioning the extra button I need to press.
