Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 166
Internationals debutant Sang-Moon Bae, the lone Korean in the line-up, finds himself in exactly that position and will begin his service soon after the matches wind up. Korean golf fans will be treated to one of their great hopes in Bae but also their most prolific male champion in K.J. Choi, who is taking on an assistant captain’s role. And Choi knows the value to his country of this one week. “Until now, the Presidents Cup was held in an English speaking world, and this is the first time that it’s being held in a non English speaking world,” Choi said. “With the Presidents Cup being held in Korea, I am quite sure that there will be renewed ideas of what golf is. “People in Korea are thrilled and excited about the 2015 Presidents Cup that is to be held in Korea, so we can already see more interest and love for the game being built up. I am quite sure that through this Presidents Cup, the golf business and playing golf in Asia will advance to a higher level. “When [Pak] came over to the US and won the US Open, that was a big event for Korea. When I won the Compaq Classic [in 2002, the first Korean to win on the US PGA Tour], this was a big thing for Korea, too, and that helped a lot with the popularity. All the junior golfers that saw that tournament back then, such as Seung Yul Noh or Sang-Moon Bae, are all the guys that grew up right now and became such players.” Aside from the Korean location and presence within the side, there are more countries being touched by this edition of the Presidents Cup. India and Thailand have their first-ever representatives, with 28-year-old Anirban Lahiri and 45-year-old stalwart Thongchai Jaidee earning their way onto the International side, both with multi-win seasons. THERE’S A HISTORY IN KOREAN GOLF OF ONE BREAKTHROUGH MOMENT HAVING A SNOWBALL EFFECT.
