Welcome to the May edition of Golf Digest Middle East for 2024.

Our lead story looks at rising star Tom Kim, the 22-year-old explains what to wish for when his only dream has already come true. Golf Digest Middle East also looks into the Journey of Garrick Porteous, we jockey into position with LIV's Graeme McDowell, get to grips with UAE's Joshua Grenville-Wood's long driving, plus we preview Valhalla for this month's PGA Championship and the New Korea Country Club for the Aramco Team Series.

All this and much, much more in the May 2024 edition of Golf Digest Middle East.
