This may be old news but I came across this in a local golf magazine.....


Frostee, Ping Ping & JL's mom got featured in Where2Golf magazine, I am quite sure it is their mom as the opening statement says it all: -

"Joanna Yap started playing golf when she was 40 years old at Orchid Country Club under the tutelage of a golf coach. Fourteen years later, Mdm Yap now coaches others at the Executive Golf Course (MANDAI). She has 3 daughters who are talented golfers also. The youngest is a teaching pro at Keppel Club's driving range, and they all compete at various levels in local and regional tournaments"

Way to go auntie!

I met Golf Pro Joanne Yap at Executive where she teaches and saw her hit some balls ... she can outdrive some long hitters here ... pale She's a good coach .

They were all born "pro." The only thing which has changed is that they have publicly acknowledged their destiny Smile

The white canvas backdrop initially caught my eye, but I actually had 3 looks before confirming; the white baskets on the left was a dead give away as the black net was not really visible.

P.S. I even thot Ping Ping was the apprentice but the photo wasn't very clear. They need a better photographer like you!

Does anyone have the article to scan and paste it here for those not-so-fortunate-to-read-the-article souls like me to view?
