Korea

The tournament here in Incheon hasn't even started, but I already have enough photos to fill a blog post or two... The course we are playing is fascinating. Maybe not the course itself, but the surroundings. It seems like they blew up a mountain to put in the 4 golf courses, two driving ranges (of which one is the worlds largest circular range), and the club houses. Lining a few fairways are amazingly beautiful flowers and just next to other holes is the airport. It's just a weird mix of beauty, industry, ocean and aircraft... 

We're playing the Ocean Course, which is a lot of fun. It's totally different from last week's course in Malaysia - wide fairways and huge greens. And it's not very protected so if the wind starts howling the scores will definitely go up. I'm off at 9.12 tomorrow morning local time. That is 7.12 pm Thursday night in Oklahoma and 2.12 am Friday in Sweden. I think :)


The circular range. 400 yards across


A lady cooks these fish-shaped waffles to order by the 11th green. For free!!!


Plenty of flowers surround the course. Beautiful Korean meadows!


"Temporary" buildings look a lot more permanent in Korea than in Sweden... This is by 18 green


The cute caddies lead all amateurs in a warm-up session before the Pro-Am started. Hilarious!


You don't have to worry about being cold during the morning warm-up. They have placed heaters on the range!


And you don't have to worry about being cold during shuttle rides - in cart propane heaters!


The cup this week! Shiny shiny bling, bling! And the sound of the ball going in is priceless!
