With all the focus on the US PGA Tour, not much goes to the equally deserving pros slugging it out there in the heat and humidity of the Asian Tour. I'd just like to draw some attention to them and also perhaps tok-kok sing-song abit about the boys in the Asian Tour. I'd start off with a few guys I always check out on...

Chapchai Nirat - This guy's the BOMB. Also as King Kong for all the right reasons. Asian Tour record of 32 under par over 72 holes... INSANE!!!




Ben Leong - My home town boy! Just gotta root for him, right? He was hot last year, winning 3 tournaments in a row... including the Selangor Masters where he held off the charging Thongchai Jaidee




Noh Seung Yul - This boy looks like my little cousin, but way more talented. Just a matter of when he'll break through on the big stage. I have my money on him.




Chinnarat PHADUNGSIL - Another Thai talent. Where do they come out from??

It's just too bad that the prize money on the Asian Tour is pathetic compared to the US PGA Tour. Or else we could have a lot more talents then what we are seeing now.

don't laugh at fat boys.

the last time i played with a fat boy

this was in my head and maybe softly out of my lips after seeing him hit his 3 wood with a 3/4 swing;

"ah pui can flyyyy......"



then again, maybe they can hit longer because they have more weight to transfer.

yeah and chubby proceed to record his name on the longest-drive plaque and planted it proudly on the fairway.....it was a Kodak moment until you have to tell him cruelly that its meant for ladies only.

Not More weight transfer, Big tyre how to turn ??

It is due to more stability, doesn't sway here and there.

Hence the Kodak moment....forever etched in our mind...

driver shaft - $235, lesson on club selection - Priceless.

for everything else, there's common sense.....

lets see if this will work out the rage in you know who.....

I found this awesome stats of Lee Sung from Asian Tour site.

in 2009, he led the tour in Total Driving with 306 yrds avg distance and wait.......75% fairways hit! PGA Tour's long hitters hit 50%-60% fairways max. Tim Clark gets about the same accuracy but 20 yrds less.

Golfdigest Singapore should make a swing sequence article on Lee. Pound for pound, he could be the best driver there is today.
