I N A game seemingly ruled by numbers, not everything that counts in golf can actually be counted. Take, for example, the respective world rankings of the International and American teams lining up in the biennial matches from this Thursday at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club outside Seoul in South Korea. On paper, the home side once again looks to be short on firepower, but that’s not really the point of the exercise. The impact on golf in South Korea, and more broadly across Asia, of staging this Presidents Cup on the world’s largest and most populous continent for the first time could be immeasurable. It is already the game’s true growth area, but having 24 of the game’s premier players in Korea at the same time could spark a lasting contribution to the sport. Korean golfers are a fanatical, fastidious lot. And there’s a history in Korean golf of one breakthrough moment having a snowball effect. Witness the explosion of female pros to emerge after Se Ri Pak lit up women’s golf by winning two majors in 1998 – an impact that continues to peak and is still being felt on the LPGA Tour today. Granted, in terms of player development, the girls hold an advantage. Korean female professionals have significantly outnumbered their male counterparts, primarily due to the two-year mandatory military service that men are required to undertake, usually at an age crucial to progressing in golf.
