Sang-Moon Bae is from South Korea and was born 21 June 1986. He got some media attention because of his win at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in May 2013. He beat Keegan Bradley by two strokes winning his first PGA Tour event.
His main source of golf education was taking lessons from his 18-handicap mother and watching YouTube clips of Tiger Woods and Adam Scott. Today he has one of the best looking swings on the Tour. During his time in South Korea, he had no professional instruction and little competition until he turned pro at age 18.
He demonstrates that non-traditional routes to swing excellence still exist.
