Sky Sports golf pundit Richard Kaufman has been having his say on the emergence of the new wave of Asian players.

He told Sky Sports: “The week that felt like it wouldn’t end had a fitting finale, and another potential star has emerged.

“Six European Tour starts now for Soomin Lee and after a third place on his debut, he threw it away in Malaysia on his second outing and finished as a runner-up to Marcus Fraser. You wondered what that might do for his psyche and when things started to unravel in Shenzhen, there was a feeling of déjà vu.

“The thunderstorm delay after he had just got up and down for par at the eighth came at a crucial time and allowed him to compose himself and, on Monday morning, he came out and showed his talent against a bunch of proven European Tour winners.

“South Korea, a country that has a plethora of female golfing stars, is now starting to see a new wave of young kids to follow in the footsteps of KJ Choi and YE Yang. Seung Yul Nog and Sang Moon Bae have already established themselves in America and Ben An has got a taste of the big time after his rookie winning year in 2015. Watch out for Jeung Hun Wang next.”
