The Ten Best Asian Golfers Of All Time

The Ten Best Asian Golfers Of All Time

Golf in Asia is booming and there are now some great Asian players on all the world tours. The women have made more of an impact, I think, in terms of success and numbers of them on the premier golfing tours. The current number one golfer on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tour is Lydia Ko; a Korean born young lady from New Zealand. This girl is a wunderkind in anybody’s terms, incredibly talented and modest to a tee. She will have a long and glorious career at the top of the golfing tree.

Minjee Lee is a Perth girl, who has only turned professional recently and has already won two professional events; including one on the LPGA tour. The LPGA tour is the women’s tour in the USA; and is regarded as the biggest women’s pro golf tour. Minjee Lee is the next big thing coming in women’s golf.

Shigeki Maruyama is the hottest Asian male player on the USPGA tour, which stands for the United States Professional Golf Association tour. This young twenty three year old Japanese star is almost at the top of his game. Beating Ricky Fowler in a play off at the Waste Management Phoenix Open recently put him on the world stage.

KJ Choi, another great Korean golfer has been a stalwart on the USPGA tour for many years now and has been showing signs of late of returning to top class form; so another win may be just around the corner. Will it be in the Year of the Monkey?

Inbee Park, yet another Korean, has been atop the LPGA women’s game for a number of years and does not look like slipping anytime soon.

Arjun Atwal is a great Asian golfer on the European men’s tour and has already had great success; with only more to come.

Bae Sang Moon, yes you guessed it, another great Korean golfer, has won on the USPGA tour and great things are expected of him.

Danny Lee from New Zealand is achieving high finishes and wins on the USPGA tour; and he may only get even better.

Amy Young is a star on the LPGA tour and is a consistent performer at the top level.

Yani Tseng is another fabulous Asian lady golfer on the LPGA tour with multiple wins under her belt.

Ryo Ishikawa is a Japanese player with huge potential and has already achieved massive success on the men’s Japanese tour.

Professional Golfers: Stress Relief Options

These past years, Tiger Woods made headlines not because of his dexterities in golf, but because of his predilections for escorts and cocktail waitresses. Most of his “affairs” happened while on tour and away from his now ex-wife. Since golf tournaments are physically and mentally stressful, do these competitions drive professional golfers to seek stress relief in the arms of escorts and prostitutes?

Tiger Woods and His Sex Life

You don’t have to click here and there to know the latest controversies surrounding Tiger Woods and his secret rendezvous with paid women. According to the National Enquirer, the golf superstar had sex with at least 121 women as of their writing. Some of his dalliances allegedly include porn stars, strippers and professional sex workers.

The Washington Post reported that a Hollywood madam claimed that Woods hired high-priced call girls multiple times. In fact, he did not blink an eye when he shelled out $15,000 for a night with a prostitute from Manhattan. There are also instances where Woods paid two girls for a threesome. In a Vanity Fair issue where Woods was the cover, he was said to “made monthly payments of between $5,000 and $10,000 to keep his harem quiet.”

Golfers’ Penchant for Sex Workers

In some states in the U.S., paying escorts for their time is considered as legal. That being said, remunerating them for sex is against the law. Some professional golfers are allured with awesome, no strings attached sex. They want to enjoy threesomes or mild S&M with fully breasted girls. With sex workers, they can explore their fetishes discreetly and without being judged. Moreover, a tryst with professional call girls serves as their outlet for allaying the stress brought by very competitive golf tournaments.

Liaisons with escorts is, indeed, a worthwhile experience since “they know what they’re doing.” However, there’s no turning back in it. Once you get caught, there may or may not be repercussions of great magnitude. In the case of Tiger Woods, his extramarital affairs led to divorce, drop in endorsements, and poor performance in the sport. As a matter of fact, AT&T, Accenture, Gatorade and Tag Heuer have withdrawn their support for the golf superstar. His world ranking also dropped due to his “leg injuries”, which may or may not be associated with his recent predicaments.

What Luxuries Await the Next Golfing Superstar?

As the private Leer jet touches down on the tarmac and rolls to its eventual appointed stop, the door opens releasing the stairway and its prized cargo. Stepping down is the wunderkind golfing superstar, being trailed closely by his manager, personal trainer, mind coach, dietician and girlfriend. He is dressed in Nike clobber, especially designed for him, from head to toe; all part of his billion dollar sponsorship deal. Our golfing superstar’s gait is slightly inhibited, as he is still recovering from his snowboard injury recently suffered in Aspen; whilst staying in his private lodge on a well earned holiday from the rigours of golf.

Young Mister Golf, has managed to maintain his number one spot on the world golf rankings despite the injury lay-off. The pressure, however, is coming with the emergence of a new, even younger, golfing superstar breaking through for his first win, despite the fact that he is till attending primary school in the Virgin Islands. The resultant media focus on this new potential rivalry caused YMG to have a very public spat with his girlfriend, the recently retired Russian tennis star, Ayanka Nervousa. This fight and breakup occurred at Bea restaurant in New York, over cocktails, and YMG was forced to buy the most expensive Tiffany’s diamond bracelet so far sold in 2015. Their relationship has graced the covers of most of the world’s celebrity magazines, and has recently been described as in a ‘fragile state’. Encounters with escorts, has been whispered in the press, as at the bottom of their disagreement; which is all very Tiger like.

YMG has just released his own fragrance, called “Splash Shot”, under the auspices of Nike and Christian Dior. “Experience the shower of confidence every Splash Shot triggers when you move your balls,” is the tagline, which accompanies promotions of this exciting new men’s fragrance. YMG has extended his sponsorship deal with Mercedes Benz to include an Ambassadorship of the new F 015 luxury model. He now also has homes in Malibu, New York, London, Los Angeles and a hunting lodge in Oregon. Rumours about his gambling problems continue to hound him, however.

The question is, what luxuries await the next golfing superstar? Perhaps, a trip to the moon with Sir Richard Branson and Virgin Space. It could very well be the purchase of several Greek islands, which would help their struggling economy. Most likely it will be a two billion dollar ten year deal with Nike, as part of their ongoing commitment to golf. Of course, you cannot forget the millions of dollars raised for charity by global golf and golfing superstars like YMG and BWG (Boy Wonder Golfer).
