Was not able to find any rhythm at all Sad

it starts with the mind........ suggestion: lower one's expectation.


like someone said to me....." NBzzz...you don practise....do one game a month, don go coaching.....what you expect ".....since that day, I calibrated my expectation everytime before I go for a game.

yesterday.....heng heng...still win matchplay....

Accept the following realities:

1. You will hit wayward shots.
2. You will duff the ball.
3. You will score in the 100s.
4. You will curse and swear.
5. You will have to 'donate' lunch.
6. You will be back... Smile

I'd go to MBGC or Laguna greens to do some chipping and putting first.

I'd go to Turf city range to hit irons off grass and hit drivers from a real tee (not those rubber tees)

I'd play par-3 rounds at NSRCC just to get a feel of hitting off bunkers, more pitching, chipping and putting.

then I'll play a full round. Whatever the results, I wont be bother with. Bcoz even when Im playing regularly, I still suck so lay off is not an excuse. In fact if Duval's theories are right, I should have ample supply of good shots in me!

You may prolly need to buy beers as the tendency of your tee off ball may land at the Red tee especially so if one is teeing at the Blue or Black tee. If you don't wanna buy beer, you have to wear a skirt or pull down your pants while playing the rest of the holes which is a US standard. For Asian standard, one needs to buy beer! lol!

Do a 30-60 mins warm up swing (PW, 7 iron, 5 iron, FW and Driver) before the round.

Hi G I Joy, hows the elbow? Hope you have recovered some from your injuries. Mine started to come back especially since my maid who went on home leave and over there she got robbed of everything she had brought home inclusive of Passport and Work permit. So while waiting for her to come back, its been nearly 20 days already, I have been doing quite a lot of housework due to the fact that I got nothing to do so have to do some house thingy. The one which hurts my elbows most had to be the wringing of clothes everyday. That really hurts and strained the elbow muscles and I felt like its coming back. I am praying that the maid will be back next week when her Passport is ready.... sigh

Yup, I too can't wring the clothes much.
Previously, I had 'all the strength' in the world to do so. Sad man...

Lucky the maid confirmed back tomorrow so no more washing clothes liao.. cheers
You take care and watch out for every day tasks which might affect using the injured muscles, just like this wringing of clothes, the level of the keyboard of your PC if you are at it for hours at a stretch, carry heavy stuffs...etc etc...
