You want to restrict my freedom of expression??? :roll:

First of all, this is about Yao Ming golfing, a subject matter of this thread.

It was also one of the latest activities of Yao Ming, and therefore it was posted on Dedicated Thread about Yao Ming Off Court Activities.


I don't see ANY PROBLEM for doing so.


SO GTFO !!! :evil: :x :twisted:


This is "Yao on the basketball court, and his most recent game" section, not Yao Ming on the golf course section, LOL.

You should move this thread to the proper section, "Yao off the court; Yao's personality".

So Yao Ming (with Ye Li) arrived into Mission Hills, Haikou shortly after noon today (October 18 ) for the 2nd bi-annual 2012 Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am Game that will commence tomorrow (October 19 ~ 21).

Shortly after arrival, Yao Ming, accompanied by Ye Li, went for his practice on the Mission Hills golf course.

There he met Michael Phelps who was about to finish his practice and was leaving for the first press conference thrown by Mission Hills Group.

Yao Ming greeted Michael Phelps, showed him his tailor-made golf clubs and started a short chat.

Then after Michael Phelps left, Big Yao started his practice with Zhang Lianwei, China's #1 male golfer giving him some pointers/advice on his tee-off and driving.

The practice lasted about 3 hours. When Yao Ming went back to his hotel, he bumped into Stephen Hendry, ex world snooker champion and the two gleefully took a picture.

In tomorrow celebrity-pro tournament, Yao Ming will be partnered with Liang Wenchong, captain of the newly formed China's golf national team, who is currently in hot form after winning OneAsia's 1-million-U.S.-dollar 2012 Nanshan China Masters in Shenzhen on Sunday (October 13)


Here are some photos of Yao Ming with Ye Li, his chat with Michael Phelps, his tee-off practice and with Stephen Hendry.

Yao Ming on an E-Z-GO golf cart, specially reserved for him by the organizer of the 2012 Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am Game.

Because Big Yao is such damn tall, they have to remove the top of the E-Z-GO golf cart !!! :P :lol: :D

YEAH... in the press conference, Ronaldo admitted he is OVERWEIGHT, AND THAT IS WHY he picked up golf and hoped by playing golf, it can help him to trim down/control his weight.

He now weighs over 120 KG (264 lbs), which is WAY TOO FAT considering he is only 1.83M/6ft, and he weighed about 77 KG to 80 KG as a player.

He said he had set up an organization in Brazil for diet control to help reduce obesity which is getting very common and serious in Brazil.

Yao Ming woke up very early this morning (October 19) cos he and Liang Wenchong are the very first pair to tee-off in the Pro-Celebrity game.

So he had to go for a few more practice for his tee-off/driving before the game began.

He met a few other celebrities on the way to the golf course and took pictures together with them: South Korean actor Jung Woo Sung and Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds.


I wonder whether Adidas had signed him up.... His Reebok contract should have expired, and this is the 2nd consecutive day that he wore an Adidas !!! :shock:
