As a follow up to yesterdays post, the next and last Asian PGA tournament events of 2007, the Johnnie Walker Classic and Asian Volvo Masters, respectively, will both be good examples of prestigious golfing in Thailand this year.
Therefore, I thought it appropriate timing to post this years remaining event schedule. Also, just a thought, but if anyone is thinking about a golf vacation in Asia this year, why not plan it to coincide with one of these golf tournaments. Not only will you be able to sharpen your game, but you can also see up-close how the pros do it on tour.
