Mat making in Dinh Yen village in the southern province of Dong Thap was recognized as an intangible national heritage in 2013. Some 3,000 people there were involved in making mats for generations. They grow the sedge they require to make the mats along the Hau River. It was in the 1920s that mat making emerged as a profession in Dinh Yen. Without enough raw materials back then, villagers had to source them from nearby provinces. The peak was achieved in the 1980s when the village’s products were exported to Thailand, Cambodia and East European countries. Nowadays villagers use machines to reduce the time taken to make mats though the details on them are still completely made by hand. There are many skilled artisans still working in the village.

Viet Nam News by Robert Bicknell Can changing clubs make a difference in your game as a professional? We read all the time that a well-known Tour pro decided to switch brands, mostly due to a ridiculous amount of money being waved in his/her face. What people do not realize is that many of these pros are not entirely stupid and usually demand that the company make a virtual copy of their old tried and true club, with minimal cosmetic or technical changes, and just a new brand stamped on it. What’s old is new… sort of. But occasionally, the manufacturer might demand the player accept the designs they currently have, modified a bit to meet the player’s requirements. This can be something as simple as weighting, or grinding the sole a bit differently than what is actually on the market.
