16 June 2023 in the nine practice boxes at Aquation Golf: eighteen contestants are readying themselves to compete in a 18-hole competition with a warm-up session led by two pro players, Mr. Ryan Fenchman and Mr. Im Raehul. After three heated yet good-natured challenges ('duo scrambled game', 'longest drive', 'closest-to-pin'), prizes are handed over by Ms. Ban Sopheak, representative of the Cohiba Atmosphere/Pacific Cigar company, one of the numerous and prestigious sponsors .

Swinging for Glory...
The first major virtual tournament using exclusively the TrackMan course mode in Cambodia ended with cocktails offered by Ballantine's and a ritzy buffet catered by Aquation Restaurant. Some premium cigars were also lit up while the participants chatted about the event, along the line of “golf, friends, drinks and food, what else could you ask for?” They also expressed satisfaction at this more in-depth discovery of the TrackMan technology, which most them had never tried before.
