Welcome Back, Ryo Ishikawa! First 2010 PGA Appearance at Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club This Weekend


Losanjealous is happy to welcome back to Pacific Palisades this weekend the 18-year-old rock star phenom of Japanese golf, the impressively coiffed, impeccably styled Ryo Ishikawa (石川 遼) a.k.a. the Bashful Prince (“Hanikami Ōji”).

SuperSport.com has a quote on his return to Riviera:

“Last year here, I was very, very nervous,” Ishikawa said Tuesday after an early practice round on the course nestled in the Pacific Palisades suburb of Los Angeles.

“But this year my mentality is much different. I experienced so many things last year. I’m much more comfortable.”

And of course, Ryo loves Los Angeles:

Ishikawa has visited a shopping mall in LA, and he tried In-N-Out Burger, the classic burger chain.

A huge fan of his, the Golf Girl assembled a collection of the varied pants stylings of Ryo:
