Historical golf event at Black Mountain turned into an epic battle

Yates and Atiwit ”Jazz” Janewattananond met at Black Mountain golf club for a battle they just could not refuse. A cross country golf happening, including a long drive over the club drive, that took place at Black Mountain’s golf resort and Black Mountain Water Park attracted golf interested people around the world to see if the challenge would be met.
Simon Yates and Jazz started off on asmall island in the middle of Black Mountain Wakeboard Park where the staff had planned a Par 10 cross country golf course for them.


After the island, they hit to the Par 3 golf course’s ninth hole.


From the tennis court they both hit well over the club house (around 300 meter) and ended up with 18th fairway, 10th fairway, 13th fairway and 12th fairway and on to the 12th green.


It was an exciting event and a very close call, but ended off with Yates winning over Jazz with three strokes.


Jazz is Thailand’s young player with big potential, that was at age 14 the youngest golf player to make the cut of the professional golf tour ”Asian Tour International”. Simon Yates is the scottish golf player that have lived in Thailand for almost 20 years with two wins and 14 seconds to brag about.

They both thought this was an extremely fun battle and said that they would want to play this against other top players.
