There’s no doubting since Soomin Lee lifted the Shenzhen International trophy last year, things haven’t exactly gone to plan. After such a promising start to 2016, topped off with his maiden European Tour win, Lee has struggled to adapt to life away from Asia. A huge gulf in talent, as well as a variety of cultures to try and adapt to takes time and undoubtedly Lee would have learned a lot over the past year, mainly that golf is hard!
With his return to a course that he is obviously fond of, this week could be the catalyst Lee needs to get back amongst the best on the European Tour. Having made some changes to his swing and support staff in the past few weeks, it will be interesting to see if this has an immediate effect.
Along with Lee, YE Yang will also be teeing it up this week, after receiving an invite from the tournament organizers. Lee won this last year as an invitee, can Yang do the same? It’s unlikely, but nothing is impossible in golf…
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.
