Taiwan Golf after the war was developed well because of the assistances of the military and government. Especially, after Military Assistance Advisory Group took over old Tamsui golf course, they pushed the military to regard golf as a diplomatic strategy so that golf became one of the communications between Taiwan and USA. The military, therefore, helped old Tamsui golf course to recover the design of 18-hole golf course and then built Taipei Golf Club. Under the historical background mentioned above, some of the military leaders suggested to set up ROC Golf Club in order to help the well-developed environment of golf and to train golf players. Among all the military leaders, Fu-En Yi is an outstanding representative, and he is even seen as the backstage driving force of pushing Taiwan golf to the world. The well-known golfers, such as Liang-Huan Lu, Ji-Xiong Guo, Min-Nan Hsieh and Hsi-Chuen Lu, are supported and trained by Fu-En Yi. He indeed is an important figure to push Taiwan golf into the world. This paper, through data collection and analysis, finds that Fu-En Yi put a lot of efforts to Taiwan golf no matter how hard the time was or how much money he paid. Fu-En Yi even took the risk of punishment by the military and the government to send golfers to the aboard for competitions by commanding the military airplanes in private. Mr. Yi took the job of the president of Ya Hua Company after he retired, but he still kept sponsoring the golf competitions in Taiwan. He even assigned the work of professional competitions to a full-time employee. The reasons why the golfers played well abroad and why Taiwan won the reputation of the King of Golf in Asia are due to Mr. Yi's effort and contribution.
