As someone highly considering the move to asia next year to commit full time im wondering if someone can talk a bit on the financial aspect. A perfect situation for me would be a course over 7000 yards and a solid practice facility with quality greens. Grass range would be a must. Anyone have an idea on whats the best bang for the buck? Is Thailand the best/cheapest country for this?

Thailand  Hua Hin area

half a dozen great courses around half hour from town,

Starting to think "G.O.A.T" just stands for "Go On, Answer This" in a very condescending manner.

How you can use the search function on here is the biggest shock as Google seems to be beyond you for the most basic things.

Congratulations on finishing 3rd in the Philippine Golf Tour ICTSI-Anvaya Cove event.

Very scenic course to play.

We used to have a PGT-ICTSI event here in Cebu at my home course  but there was a proposal to remodel the course so they moved the Aboitiz Invitational to the Orchard.

Ah thanks, that is a good way to track him. See he was at the NZ Open, which I caddied at. Would have taken a decent payday there. See he is now back in Asia playing on the develipment tour.

Hello All,


This is Nick's wife... it's been a while since he has logged in and made some posts... he's gotten super busy traveling week after week, back to back. I was thinking it would be a good idea to give you guys an update and keep this thread going.


Earlier this year, Nick's been playing in a lot of Philippine Golf Tour and ADT events, and played pretty well. Although he loves playing golf out there, he made the decision to go for Web.com. I dropped him off at the airport this morning for 1st Web.com Qschool, where he'll be playing at Arbor links GC in Nebraska City. The tourney starts Oct 3-6. You guys will be able to follow the leaderboard on this link: https://pgatq.bluego...q1715/index.htm


He's been working really hard on his game, sharpening his short game and especially putting. I've always thought he has a solid swing, and is a great ball striker... at this point, it's just about having each aspect of his game come together for the 4 rounds of golf.


He gets 2 official practice rounds starting on Sunday, but he wanted to arrive earlier to start getting a feel of the course. I don't know if he'll be able to chime in anytime next week, but I'll do my best to keep you all posted. Thanks again for all your support!! You have no idea how much it means to Nick!!!

Cheers guys!!!

He hit a long iron at the  1st (his 10th) off the tee,which  went about 300.

had to watch the rest of his round after that
