PGA Champ Yang Bumming Golf Balls from College Players
However, at a recent corporate outing at The Institute Golf Course in San Marin, Calif., Yang noticed that he only had one ball in his golf bag.
Because the Penta TP is not in stores yet, Yang considered buying a few sleeves of his old ball, the TaylorMade TP Red, in the pro shop. However, the shop only carried Titleist and Callaway golf balls, so Yang was stuck.
According to his interpreter, Brian Park, a pro shop worker told Yang to wait a moment and then returned with six TaylorMade balls he'd collected from members of the UCLA golf team who were practicing at the facility.
Ironically, Yang played at the outing with Jamie Lovemark, a
former All-American at USC who recently turned pro.
No word on whether Lovemark remarked about the Trojans' 28-7 win on the football field last season.
