Tee Times For A Super Power (Troon Golf & Travel, February 2011)

China. To most of us in the West, it is the great unknown. Most Westerners have never visited. But not only is it the fastest-growing economy in the world, it is the most actively growing golf region in the world. Some of our best golf course architects have been going to China for two decades now: Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones II, Brian Curley and Robin Nelson among others. And with golf becoming an Olympic sport again in 2016, it is likely that China will field a team. That, my friends, is great progress and hard to ignore.
