Jiyai shin kinda stopped winning after her eye surgery. Think LASIK or something.
But I also think it's pretty tough as the field nowadays are more solid.....as she triumph as she is bloody consistent

Oh yea Panji, the ladies are plying off men's white tees.

e.g.

Longest par 5 - hole 7 at 520 yards

Longest par 4 - hole 14 at 418 yards

With HYP's drives of 260 -270 yards, some par 5s are attack-able. And Par 4s can attack with shorter irons. But that's for her......coz she drives longer than the two ladies I saw her with for first 2 days. So for others, may need longer irons to play.

Nice pics Jeff!

You got so close to the golfers with your iphone?!
When Miyazato Ai got a bad shot and hit her ball off the fairway, that was the closest I'd seen her.... her speaking. Can swoon in her aura~

MW... Hmm... Her aura's well, not really to swoon. Perhaps its her height. And the fact that her parents were around. ROFL

Anyway, used the zoom. I don't wanna get too near. And there are folks with compact cameras going in too close with their annoying chimes and beeps until MW looked at me and told me to, "Please put it away." lol!

Damn it wasn't my fault~ My iPhone never squeaks a sound! Its the chap standing behind me!!!

Anyway, my shots are all really bad.

And a souvenir~~~





Its kinda funny how I'd managed to get it as I initially wanted MW to endorse on it. But if the Folks from Land of Smiles have problems approaching MW in the first place, a Man from an Island 'somewhere down south' probably has even bigger problems approaching her to sigh.

Suzann Pettersen had finished her round on the 3rd day and was at the Driving Range, her Caddy was there and walked over to Kunnasak's Club-Fitting Booth and asked for a needle. I did not notice that was Suzann Pettersen's caddy until he sat down, removed his shoe and pricked his blister....

And it was then I noticed his cap (Nike 20XI) and remembered this World No. 2 is also signed by Nike and jumped at this chance and asked if he'd be kind enough to pass it to Pettersen to sign it after she'd finished her practice. He happily obliged and helped me with it.

And he asked a very strange question, "Do you have anymore of this? Because we're looking for this for a very long time."

Told him if they are in Bangkok the next time, they can get it 2nd hand, plenty of it, near mint condition at Thaniya Plaza since they don't sell these brand new anymore at Shopping Centres these days.

Kinda strange question as I thought Nike would have tonnes of these for Tour Players.

Anyway, there's always something good if I can't get World Number #17 to sign on, I'll get World Number #2 to sign on it instead! cheers

I think its 2010 technology?

Wow~ Recycling technology? Its kinda absurd right? Any serious golfer would be able to see past all the marketing hype and pooh-pooh it off.
Time to get a 2nd VR Driver Head... Before Nike sends their Army of purchasers down to swipe all available 2nd hand VR Driver Heads off Thaniya Plaza!
