Angel Yin managed to win her first LPGA Tour title after a stunning victory against Lilia Vu in the final. In the interview after the match, Yin emphasized that she decided to change and 'express her emotions on the course'
Although previously in her career she was 'cold', Yin realized that this could not lead her to success. A few days ago, this great golfer revealed who motivated her the most to change. “So I went to tennis. Went to watch the Shanghai Masters, which is pretty much the biggest tournament other than the Majors.
And I was watching the first match and then the second match, Rublev, and it was a really tough match between Dimitrov, and I just saw him like express himself very well on the court. It wasn't like he was just completely emotionless”.

Angel Yin: Growing up everyone taught me to be stone faced
Yin thought a lot about it. It's as if she realized in one moment how important the mental aspect is in the career of every athlete.
“And I was like you know, I've been thinking about that a lot last night, and then today I start out pretty mellow. Not much, kind of flat-lining. Nothing was happening. I was like: ‘You know what, I think I'm going to draw on my emotions”.
It seems that the American golfer grew up in a family where emotions were not expressed. She learned to be like that. But there are moments in life when you realize that you have to change for your own good. Yin realized this in time, and it must be admitted, she deservedly won her first LPGA title.
“Growing up everyone taught me to be stone faced, no emotions, poker face. I don't think that fits me. What fitting me right now is I'm doing to express myself”.
