dont know if you guys have any, pre-round, during the round or even after, like say wearing a specific shirt, using a specific ball marker, doing certain odd rituals and so on and so forth...

for me,
1. i dont drive the buggy...eheh
2. if its an early morning round and i didnt have a proper breakfast, i will not have anything to eat until we finish...
3. after a good round, i wont clean my clubs, even if it was raining and muddy... dont want to wash the luck off the equipment... lol


anyone else do silly things to "help" them have a good round?

i can tell you that golfers are highly superstitious....

got a call from MM last week and he asked me if he can come in on thursday to change his grips. i told him that i will be away and will only be back on monday. But i said i will arrange for Ivan to take care of his grips. then there was silence....

he said no problem i will come after i return from India. i know the man and he will not let anyone else touch his clubs.

thats superstitions for you.

Use another new golf ball after getting a birdie... if not will get at least double bogey for the next hole Sad

I'm not the superstitious type but I will...

1. wear red tight G-String with low cut pants
2. practice swing behind my opponent's ass just before tee off
3. offer my buggy mate an overly expired piece of sandwich
4. pray for rain when I am 3 down with 3 holes to play for


Oh yes... and the ultimate taboo.... no sex within 24hrs prior to the game to avoid fantasizing during the game

Huh? I thought it's because it makes the legs soft? scratch

But you just reminded me of a friend. I psycho him by talking sex while he's about to putt. He fantasise until his hands tremble while putting, every single time. We both end up laughing until I lie on the green. ROFL

Anyways, my superstition relates to the number on the ball. I use the number 4s first and when I have a bad swing day. 2s and 3s for regular play, and number 1s when I want to play my best.

Now we know why you were talking about a specific dream the last time we went to play in Octville whilst having Kopi... Very Happy

The night before the game i will :

1. Talk to my iron for a better iron play next day
2. Talk to my wedges for a better short game
3. Sayang sayang my driver
4. kiss kiss my putter
5. if clear sky, will study the star and moon formation
6. Take ancient coin and shake them in a empty turtle shell
7. Take out a toy crocodile (aka buaya) and use needle to poke it

On the day itself

1. go driving range and top my ball, duff my ball..hoping to use up all the bad shot
2. bring the toy crocodile with needle on it along and if my flight mates are buaya, i poke more needles into the toy crocodile

but having doing all that, my game still lousy....Sad
