In the Wall Street Journal, we learn that English pro golfer Ian Poulter is “a massive fan of Asian food.” As if that wasn’t already enough insight for you, he goes on to rank five of his favorite courses in Asia. Two are in China (and they may be the only two China courses he’s played on here).
The 34-year-old said the greens at Shanghai’s Sheshan International Golf Club, site of the WGC-HSBC Champions event every November, are “probably the best surface we putt on all year.” He added, “They’ve spent an awful lot of money in developing that golf course.”
Poulter’s other China pick is the Olazabal Course at Mission Hills in Shenzhen, where he has thrice represented England in golf’s World Cup. “[It’s] a clever golf course,” the 2010 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship winner said. He added: “They need an Ian Poulter course now.”
