Raymond reports that Yao Ming told Sohu.com in an interview a couple of weeks ago that he would like to start playing the game of golf. Many people scoffed at the idea of Yao being able to play the game very well since he is so tall.
Well, we have some proof that Yao is serious about it. Checkout the photo below taken at the Shanghai’s Sheshan International Golf Club over the last few days.
Actually, the way he is addressing the ball looks pretty good for a starter. You can tell he’s getting some good instruction.
Raymond also reports that Yao recently moved to a new house in the Song Shan District from his old Xuhui District. Sheshan (and the golf club) is in the Song Shan District and is known for its luxurious houses and villas, as well as its great view of the Huangpu River.
