NYC's swing.....taken with iphone 4 cam. Not so pro as the Jetty Images boss's Sony camera.









Ok, back to main event.
It has been a thoroughly enjoyable trip, both from a golfer's perspective and ahem....on the personal front.
Having there, I must say that this whole event is very organized in terms of set-up, infrastructure and ambience. Everything from sponsors, tee box to range, hospitality to the warmth and kindness shown by the Thai people was immaculate.








hahahahaha.....I already know what car to get already when my current one is up! Very Happy
Btw, one of the local company actually sponsored hotel rooms in excess of 70 for the players and their guests. Such wonderful support from the local front.
The sponsor's name is obvious from my pics.

And oh, here are some products seen from this event which we are seeing now and should be seeing soon on the local front.











Man, I love that Callaway Tour Bag!!!!! Any sponsors?

Throughout these 6 days, I have many new friends thru eating, drinking, tearing grips ($!#(!?), jokes and erm....massages. Razz
Thanks to Ken, Tong, Jack Dic and Kunnasak for making it such a wonderful experience for me.
I will be sure to host you guys well when you guys drop by in town.




That's Ken working hard and boy, can this boy eat! affraid



Tong and Jack.....up to no end in teasing me and drinking.
As for Dic and Kun, cannot post their pics as they are working undercover for Jetty Images. Some says DGman is the background sponsor of this entity.

And finally.......my idol's bag






Pretty right! hahhahahahaha.

DGman, you are right, MW really hard to approach. I thought I would have success but it fell flat.

At least I'd got Suzann Petterson's signature on my VR Driver 9.5 head via a stroke of luck cos her caddy came over to the booth and asked for a needle to pop his blister! And I just jumped at the chance. Her caddy asked where could he get "one of these" as they can't find it (which I find it strange since I thought Nike should have tons of it for their players)....

here's a close up...the other Thai lady works for Kunnasak (CNX) and she is like FrostEE in terms of efficiency...her name is Dic.



i have been to so many tour events including Barclays, World Cup, the Open, Alfred Dunhill, countless Asian Tour event. Honda LPGA is one of the best organised asian event i can assure you. Hats off to Channel 7 for doing such a great job in thinking and organising an event that everyone involved feels so special to be a part of.

DGman

i like NYC but i must warn you of her preference for friends..haha...but still she is such a genuine character and very friendly unlike the plastic LPGA players who only smile for the cameras.

hmmmm.....point of discussion.

The elbow device that Yanni has on her right elbow.....deem legit and good for use on tour?

Seems like a elbow stabilizing device, so shouldn't it be scrutinized?

Suspect

If one look closely at yanni and her game, one can tell why she is different fm the others.

I didn't really walk alot as my knees are acting funny again. Doesn't help when I'd cut the heels of both of my feet on my shoes also....






Seems like MW doesn't like Photographers of the mobile phone toting ones. Perhaps its the annoying snap (which I don't really recall hearing it on my iPhone since there's not a single click sound on it).

Next time I bring my Mama Camera and Lenses if possible.

Whoops! My Bad, got too excited liaoz. Will delete the photos from the other thread....







Ai Miyazato on the 2nd day... 2nd tee IIRC. Her ball landed slightly outside the fairway


But she's just darned good...


As what Kunnasak had said that she doesn't do Monster Drives like the more powerful players, but her shots are straight as an arrow.

my observations from Honda:

Yani: in a game where almost everyone else is "short" and accurate, being "long" and accurate why she dominates the tour. Aggressive putter. And her lower body is so damn muscular.

Ai: her livelihood is due to her awesome short game.

Amy yang: very very beautiful swing. NYC's is a close second.

Shin ji Yai: anyone knows why she is not winning as much as few years ago?

HyP: golf channel never show her leh..stopped watching the tourney after hole 12
