Hi everyone - great forum to discuss our passion and addiction.
Love to hear from all of you on equipment, adventures, frustrations etc...
Thought I give a quick synopsis of my golfing adventure so far...
First Singapore golf course played – 9 Holes at Royal Tanglin, Singapore.
First Malaysian golf course played – Austin Hills, Johore.
First Batam golf course played – Palm Springs.
Longest Drive – 340 meters. Hit lamppost once and bounced off cart pavement twice.
Shortest Drive – 10 meters. Topped ball before the yellow senior tees. Had to buy bottle of whisky.
Best Golf shot – Sank a 70 meters, 3 meters high bunker shot for birdie and the game.
Worst Golf Shot – Duck-hooked a 7 iron which hit my playing partner in the butt. Left a six-inch wide bruise.
Most golf balls lost in one round – 10
Most golf balls gained in one round – 8 balls picked from the water hazard with a trusty ball picker.
Luckiest Golf Shot – Hole-in-One in La Costa, North Course (Hole 3 – 161 yards).
Record number of golf holes played non-stop -45 holes.
Hit by golf balls – Two times.
Worst golf injury – Sprained wrist – out for 2 months.
Shortest ownership of golf club/set – Taylormade R9- SuperTri Driver. All of two weeks
Longest ownership of golf club/set – Taylormade Monza Spider putter. Four years and counting.
Lowest Golf Score – 77 off the Blues at Tanjong (Sentosa Golf Club)
Highest Golf Score – 105 off the Blues at Air Force (Safra Country Club)
Most Expensive Golf Club – 5 Year Term membership at Safra Resort – played a total of 13 golf games in the five years.
Best Golf Holiday – Own version of West Coast Swing in the US – played Silverado in Napa Valley all the way south to Torrey Pines in San Diego. Fantastic.
So there you have it...hope to see you guys soon.
