  1. Hello all, Few days ago I play golf with somebody for the first time. This was in Malaysia, and he had handicap of 2. He was a very good golfer. However he playeding with a Cross Handed Grip.....(his hand were wrong way round...left hand was lower than right). I heard of this over the years in the past, but I've never actually seen somebody play with it. He played all shots like cross, with driver through to putter - and he beat me! Is this common and as anyone else ever seen people play with such a swing/grip? I thought it was avery strange. Thank you.
  2. Wow, does that count as PGA Tour though because tour did not exist then, technical aly? Also, he would be only 4th Japan player to win on PGA Tour. (Imada, Maruyama, Aoki).
  3. Jumbo Ozaki is my true golfing hero, because for more than 110 wins worldwide, he is a member of the World Hall of Fame, he competed in several majors Top 10, and he dominated golf for 30 years here. But more normally, definitely Shingo Katayama for his great incredible cowboy hat and amazing wardrobe collection clothes.
  4. Ishikawa He may not win probable not but he's in the last pairing, wow! To be thinking, he missed the cut last week at a pretty average Japan Tour event. So exciting, everyone in Japan talk about it. Also KT Kim is -6 in T12, very good too!
  5. Sorry guy for not keeping this up date d this season, but obviously I have other things to consider at this moment. :( Howevers, for Open in England soon, there is a huge asia contingent this year: 15 players! A several these are play the Scottish Open this week before the big Open, too. Korea; Sang-moon Bae. KJ Choi. Jung-gon Hwang. Kyung-tae Kim. Seung-yul Noh. YE Yang. Japan; Hiroyuki Fujita. Tetsuji Hiratsuka. Ryo Ishikawa. Tadahiro Takayama. Hiroo Kawai. Singapore: Lam Chih Bing. Thailand: Prayad Marksaeng. Prom Meesawat. Thongchai Jaidee.
  6. Hi all Thought I would mention, that before Wales Open, which is at Celtic Manor this week, there is tournament of Power Play Golf, the first ever professional version played today. There's 1 2player in field, including GMac, Poulter, Casey, Thongchai Jaidee, John Daly, Gary Player, Ian Woosnam, Paula Creamer and some others. Theres old players, as well as females involved in the field. I not too sure on the forma,t but I think there 2 holes/flags on every green (9 holes, par 3....) and one hole is 'easy' and one 'hard'. The hard one is the 'power play' hole, and yo
  7. It's the Top 50. :) http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/33407691/ns/sports-player_news/
  8. Let hope he can keep his form up and may get some exemptions into the some main Asian Tour events later in the season! Also, I noticed John Huh has been playing bigger events recently, on the OneAsia, and I think even a European Tour event I spotted him on last week (CHina Open i think) so he's doing well! Sorry for not updating, this week, as you all know Lee Westwood won again in Asia again, second week in a row, at the Ballantine's, a Asian Tour/European Tour event. In Japan, though, it was Australian Brendan Jones who won The Crowns, a prestigious event on the Japan Go
  9. Hello everyone, the Asian, OneAsia and Japan tours are now well underway for 2011 seasons. Like last year I'll try to be keep updated with this for you. :) Asian Tour so far: Avantha Masters (European Tour), India - WINNER: SSP Chowrasia (Ind). $2,300,000. SAIL OPEN, India - WINNER: Kiradech Aphibarnrat (Tha). $300,000. Panasonic Open, India - WINNER: Anirban Lahiri (Ind). $300,000.

  10. Just thought I'd tell you about the biggest event in Japan, happening this week: Dunlop Phoenix Tournament $2,500,000 Field Includes: Edoardo Molinari, Tom Watson, Robert Allenby, Robert Karlsson, Jaco Van Zyl, Thorbjorn Olesen, Kang-kyung Nam, Ryo Ishikawa, Yuta Ikeda, Kyung-tae Kim, Shingo Katayama, Brendan Jones, Hiroyuki Fujita, Toru Tanichu, Tetsuji Hiratsuka. Defending: Edoardo Molinari This is billed as the Japan's 'international tour' event, and features usually 8 international invites each year. Alvaro Quiros withdrew before the tournament with back pain. :(
  11. I saw about the Mickelson incident Lau - seems like he got back to the course just in time! Nice photo too. :)
  12. I thought this should have it's own thread, as it's Europe Vs Asia. For an Asian, this is like our Ryder Cup, and this will be it's 5th version when it starts in first week of January. It is Seve Ballesteros' idea, and he captained Europe in 2006/2007, although his bad health meant he had to cancel his tournament in 2008, plus the Thai king who supports the trophy, had bereavement in family so cancelled the tournament. In 2009 however, Asia won for the first time! Joe Ozaki's team beat Colin Montgomerie's Europe. Monty regained the trophy this year, and the 2011 version will see Monty re
  13. Just to say also; Ishikawa wins again! Ryo Ishikawa picked up his 3rd Japan Victory of 2010, and his 9th career win, after landing the $2,000,000 VISA Taiheyo Masters, beating the fast finishing Brendan Jones from Australia, who was looking for his 2nd win of the year. He came in second on -12, 2 shots behind Ishikawa. US PGA Tour based Ryuji IMada finished 2 back on -10 in share for 3rd, with Toru Taniguchi and Katsumasa Miyamoto. Hiroyuki Fujita who joint led in round 3 finished T6. The win makes Ishikawa within very close distance of Kyung-tae Kim, who leads the Money List. Kim
  14. Having a horrible final round, 7 over through 14. :( T59 now. Played very well first 3 rounds though. Singapore Open was starting to be a fantastic final round, about 10 golfers within 3 shots of the lead at the start, but Adam Scott's playing wonderfully and pulling away now. Would like to see Kyung-nam Kang win, he was in lead earlier today, I've met him before!
  15. Big week in Asia this week! The Singapore Open (Barclays) is the World's biggest national open in terms of prize money ($6,000,000) and features Mickelson, McDowell, Poulter, Kaymer etc this week on Asian Tour & European Tour. Meanwhile in Japan, the Taiheyo Master sis the first of 4 'season-ending' event sin Japan, huge prize funds and international players. Asian Tour: Barclays Singapore Open (European Tour co) $6,000,000 Field Includes: Ian Poulter, Phil Mickelson, Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, Padraig Harrington, YE Yang, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Francesco Molinari, Th
