how much are *your* principles worth?

Yani Tseng won the Kraft Nabisco Championship (one of four LGPA majors) last month. That win, combined with Lorena Ochoa's retirement, has made her the second-ranked woman golfer in the world. She was recently offered a $25 million sponsorship by a Chinese group, and was widely expected to accept it.

My dad was saying yesterday that according to her father, she has rejected the offer. One of the conditions of sponsorship was that she would have to play under the Chinese (PRC) flag, rather than the Taiwanese (ROC) one. Apparently that was a deal-breaker.

I have much respect. That's a lot of money to turn down.
