Ready for some overseas golf? The PGA TOUR’s Asian Swing begins with this week’s CIMB Classic in Malaysia, followed by tournaments in South Korea and China. Unique venues and cultural experiences await (as do late-night viewing opportunities on the Golf Channel!).
Three Players to Ponder
1 Justin Thomas
Three of his nine career PGA TOUR wins have come on the Asian Swing. That’s only one less than his win total in the continental U.S.
2 Pat Perez
Ryan Moore in 2013-14. JT in 2015-16. To continue the trend of successful defenses, Perez will have to win on a course with significant changes.
3 Billy Horschel
Was on fire during the FedExCup Playoffs. Now hoping to carry that momentum into the new season.
