Korean-American LPGA winner Michelle Wie donated 100 million won (US$84,500) Monday for teen breadwinners in her grandfather’s hometown.
Wie handed the money to Lee Myeong-heum, the governor of Jangheung County, South Jeolla Province, to be used for teenagers there who financially support their families.
Wie was in South Korea to commemorate an anniversary of her grandfather.
