South Korea’s Bae is in the army – now!


SEOUL: South Korea’s two-time PGA Tour winner Bae Sang-Moon will be changing the driving range for a shooting range after losing a court battle to defer his mandatory two-year military service. Bae, 28, who turned professional in 2004 and won his first US PGA event in 2013, had asked to delay his service to focus on his burgeoning career, but a South Korean district court on Wednesday ruled that he must return home to serve. Instead of appealing, Bae told the Yonhap news agency that he would “humbly accept” the ruling. All able-bodied South Korean men aged 18-35 must serve in the military for about two years.
