A week after making his Masters debut, Jeung-hun Wang will return to the venue that gave him his maiden European Tour victory and opened up the door to an endless amount of opportunities for the 21 year old.
Prior to the Trophée Hassan II tournament, Wang had shown a lot of potential, but had only one victory, in 2014, on the PGA Tour China. In saying that, when he won in China, Wang was only 18 years old and secured the victory in emphatic style, with a phenomenal ten shots to spare.
He was being talked about in Korea for a few years and then across Asia, but this victory elevated him into one of the world’s top young prospects.
Returning there this year, Wang will be under a little bit more pressure to put in a good performance as the defending champion. He will certainly fancy his chances again this week though, and at 47th, he is the highest ranked player in the field.
Y.E. Yang will also tee it up this week and be hoping to take advantage of the weak (ish) field, as will all the rest playing!
First up, I suppose I better say hello and thank you for visiting my website, whoever you are. I teach, I write, I caddy, I write, I travel, I write. Mostly, about golf if that interests you. Usually interviews for various publications and blog about my caddy adventures.
