Golfer Shin Ji-yai graduated from Yonsei University on Monday with a degree in physical education.

At her graduation ceremony she received a special award for promoting Korea and the school through her stellar performances in the sport.

Shin looked a little different when she showed up to collect the prize since she apparently had double eyelid surgery late last year.
