I confess to not knowing that much about Korea. I was too young to have any memories of the war we fought there.
I did know an elderly man who was a member of a Senior Golfer’s Association who played in tournaments in South Korea. Gene was an avid golfer; a country club champion for multiple years and quite a good teacher of the game, though all of his expertise and patience could not make me any kind of a golfer! He loved his visits to South Korea and often entertained us with anecdotes.
