he's finally mine.

Alright, I know it doesn’t sound right but that’s exactly how I felt when I finally got my ALONE picture with just the greatest golfer and gentleman on earth and the history of the game. I effuse. Maybe a little too much? But it is Jack Nicklaus after all. This is a man who I read about in the news, watched him heralded on TV and seen in biographical programs on golf’s greatest and brightest in the game – and in black and white at that! That’s right, I’m recalling his famous 1-iron approach at Baltusrol to win the US Open back in 1967. And that’s what I call history. If you would recall, I first met the man last year at the Masters together with another legend, Tom Watson. While I got…

one door closes, another one opens.

This issue signals the end of the first Golf Vacations Malaysia “Beauty & Golf” program and to be honest, it has been a rather roller coaster few months since Valerie Chan and Amelia Liew began learning from Malaysia’s esteemed teaching professional Chong Chee Ming. As we all know, golf is a hard game to learn. It requires time, energy, patience, resolutness, a diligence that never gives up or lets up, especially after spending months pounding a little white ball and trying to see it fly. As sporting pursuits go, this is easily the hardest to learn, hardest to play and simply impossible to perfect. Tiger Woods came close to being immortalised but even he had to endure a decade of hardship without a Major victory after trauma to both life and body…

regions with the most number of golf courses

1 SOUTH AFRICA (484) With it’s excellent year round climate conditions, outdoor adventures and picturesque scenery, Cape Town and Johannesburg are South Africa’s most sought after golfing regions. It’s popularity as a travel destination can largely be attributed to South Africa being the hometown of golfing greats such as Gary Player and Ernie Els. 2 ENGLAND (1,991) When one thinks of the home of golf, he or she would naturally defer to Scotland, but England actually takes the cake with regards to the most golf courses throughout the United Kingdom. Heathland, parkland, links, it’s all there. Not to mention a few courses on the Open rota as well. 3 USA (15,047) Holding the record as the country with the most number of golf courses, about 25 million people play golf in the USA. Three of…

li haotong

Li Haotong has come a long way since his first PGA TOUR Series-China tournament at 18 years old. The Chinese national rapidly made a name for himself after dominating the inaugural tour with three wins and capturing ‘Player of the Year’ honours. At the recent Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Li made four birdies on the last six holes to claim his second European Tour win and a victory over four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy by a stroke, propelling him to No. 40 in the World Golf Rankings as of last month. Shooting 23-under-par in Dubai, Li also set a new tournament record of 30 birdies, bypassing the previous record of 27 by Tiger Woods in 2001. Next up on Li’s roster is the Arnold Palmer Invitational before making his first…
