As I finished watching the 2019 Open Championship, I found out that the victorious Shane Lowry has been waiting 10 years to become a major winner. Despite spending nearly a decade attempting to secure a major title, he never gave up believing, no matter how long it took to reach his goal, that someday he would become a champion. It goes to show what dedication is worth.
Speaking of dreams and goals, we sat down with Indonesia’s No. 1 player, Danny Masrin, to talk to him about his hopes of attending the Olympics in 2020. The world's foremost sports competition takes place in Tokyo, Japan next year. Danny has a detailed action plan to succeed in his Olympic mission. He spoke to us about what it will take to achieve his highest goal yet, and his experience in the professional world so far.
We have some more exciting news about Indonesian players. Two Indonesian amateurs delivered positive results from abroad; at the prestigious championship in Malaysia and in the United States. The success of these two young players creates a promising prospect for the future. You can read their stories in the Insight section along with other interesting stories from both home and overseas.
Don’t forget to add to your knowledge of the great game by reading the golf tips from the Leadbetter Golf Academy coaches. They make the game easier and in turn more fun, something which everyone surely appreciates! Finally, don’t miss the interesting feature on the first eco-friendly footwear created from recycled plastic waste. For our beautiful planet’s sake, we hope it’s the future of footwear.
Enjoy your reading and have a great day!
