The Worldwide Virtual Tour, from, highlights the world’s most interesting courses and individuals.

Last month, Jordan Speith, Bubba Watson, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and the other 148 of the world’s top golfers began the Open Championship. The Open is one of the most prestigious events in the world, and is played on one of the oldest and most historic courses, The Old Course at St. Andrews. The broadcast was watched by millions worldwide and the winner, Jason Day, is considered among the greatest of the greats.

But on the other side of the world, there exists another Open Championship. Cameras wont broadcast it, and you’ve never heard of any of the golfers in this tournament. It’s called The DPRK Amateur Golf Open, and it’s North Korea’s only yearly golf competition.
