Ha Na Jang puts Beyonce controversy behind her, continues to win -- and dance -- on the LPGA Tour

October 10, 2016

Back in March, Ha Na Jang was wrapped up in one of the strangest controversies in sports. It involved the budding LPGA star, her father, fellow Korean golfer In Gee Chun, and even Beyonce. Well, sort of.

Jang's father had accidentally dropped a bag on Chun at the airport, causing Chun to withdraw from the HSBC Women's Champions. When Jang won that week, she did a Beyonce-inspired dance on the 18th green:

And apparently, it rubbed some people in her homeland the wrong way.

"Now every day crying in my room, last night, last week,” Jang said a couple weeks after her victory. "A lot happening in Korea, big issue."

Well, it seems Jang has put the ordeal behind her. On Sunday, she won for the first time since then, capturing the Fubon LPGA Tawain Championship -- and she celebrated with a new dance.

We're not sure what the inspiration was for that move, but well done, Ha Na.

For Jang, it was the third LPGA title of the season for the 24-year-old Korean. Only Ariya Jutanugarn (five) and Lydia Ko (four) have more this season.

The only thing that didn't go as smoothly as Jang's play or dance? The winning high-five with her caddie:


It's good to know this doesn't just happen on the PGA Tour.
