Golf Asia - - CONTENTS - BEN POON ben@re­gent­media.sg

This is­sue we have put to­gether an in­ter­est­ing, thought pro­vok­ing, en­light­en­ing and all-to­gether en­ter­tain­ing mag­a­zine for you!

Be­gin­ning from 28 year old Amer­i­can, Brooks Koepka’s his­toric win at the US Open, he is the first player in 30 years to win his sec­ond straight US Open title! At the same event, the 118th US Open marked one of the long­est streaks in golf! It was the 70th straight year for Titleist as the num­ber 1 ball played at the U.S. Open, a truly re­mark­able feat for a com­pany that rev­o­lu­tionised the golf ball in­dus­try and per­haps even the way golf is played in the mod­ern era.

Next, we in­tro­duce you to the golf mad pi­lots of Bri­tain’s Royal Air Force Aer­o­batic Team, also known as the Red Ar­rows. They share with us the sim­i­lar­i­ties be­tween speed­ing to­wards each other at over 300mph and play­ing golf!

Per­haps the epit­ome of hav­ing a true pas­sion for the game can be found within ex-royal Ma­rine Com­mando Aaron Moon. De­spite hav­ing served in a war zone, get­ting blown up by an IED and hav­ing his leg am­pu­tated as a re­sult, he is work­ing hard to­wards turn­ing pro on the Euro­pean Tour!

I hope you will be in­spired by th­ese sto­ries!
