Two days into their 80-day journey and after a shaky start in the rough terrain and cold weather, the duo are joined by a wild Mongolian dog who becomes the catalyst for tension between the two contrasting characters. Ron, the more seasoned adventurer, questions the consequences of stringing the dog along, whilst the bond between Adam and UB the dog continues to grow.
As Adam, Ron and UB continue their relentless unsupported golfing journey across Mongolia, they enjoy countless experiences with the curious locals as they take one of the most traditional and formal of games into one of the most unpopulated and wild places on the planet.
