This is Jackie Chulya, an up and coming lady professional golfer in Thailand. She’s smart, fun, motivated, hungry and ENJOYS golf. We played at the Thai Country Club near Bangkok.

It’s hard not to enjoy golf when you have rhythm like her. Her swing is so fluid and has taken a lot of work obviously to be this good at golf.

But the main point here playas, is that you DO NOT need to BOOM a ball to play from the club tees to have a good game of golf.
Jackie hits the ball about 230 with the driver and 155 yards with the 7 iron, and around 120 with the pitching wedge. That’s right, she is not hitting driver 400 yards in Mexico like DJ or Rahm.
And you want the best part? She jams. She was trying a new putter today and missed a few that would probably have gone in onwith her regular equipment. So a little level par 9 holes, on autopilot, was amazing to watch.
It’s just so ZEN. It’s so smooth. It’s so effortless and on top of that, like with most female golfers I play with, it’s just so so so ego free.. She is not tryin to smash it 300 yards after watching Rory do it. She knows her distances AND
SHE USES HER DISTANCES TO GET CLOSER TO THE HOLE WHILE BEING IN TOTAL CONTROL OF HERSELF.
That is the secret sauce here. Jackie knows her distances, she uses the exact distances she has and she does not lie to herself like we do. If you ask her how far she hits each club, she will tell you exactly.
There is no lying, no ego, no ridiculous shots in this kind of golf. I love watching Jackie Chulya play golf and just watching this rhythm and this tempo can bring your own swing to proper levels instead of trying to swing out of your shoes.
Also take particular notice of how even tempered and relaxed she is. This is so key to distance, accuracy, fun and enjoyment of the game. If things go well, great, it they don’t, fine. Have confidence in yourself you can climb out of the hole. Nothing is so serious!
Thanks Jackie for a great round.
