Played in the same flight with Unho Park yesterday at the SPGA Pres Cup 2009 Pro-Am. He got six birdies (most of the rest were at least par) and was saying he was not in best form! He uses a Bushnell range finder and can hone in onto the pin with deadly accuracy.

Met Zaw Moe, LCB, Murugiah and our own Shorthitter briefly during the after-game dinner.

A lady Korean golfer got a HIO, but it was not on a novelty prize hole unfortunately.

Messed up three holes with seven and over scores (the fast green are killers on some of the holes) but still came away with 95 gross which is good for my playing ability.

Sounds great CK. I'm sure you will be further inspired to hone your game after a game with a pro in the flight. Very Happy

Funni thing is all were Koreans (or Korean ethnically) in my flight.

Unho Park, two lady Singh beer reps and I.

BTW, todays results:

1. Q. Quek
2. U Park
3. CB Lam

Let's see if LCB can climb his way up to NO 1 position by the end of Day 3 (thurs).

BTW, Unho is a very nice person as well as a great golfer. The girls and I were all over the fairways while he waited patiently for his birdie or (at most usually) par shot finish. I wish I could say that about all the pros with which I have played in pro-ams previously.

I have from a reliable source that LCB is also very humble and tolerant of the other players while playing in pro-ams.

BTW, spoke with Warren G&CC's hopeful junior protege Edgar.

I wish him luck in future.

Great to see Short Hitter and his kaki at the dinner. (Both are GR Singapore active members.)

5th Place: Lam Chi Bing 216 (73)

Sunny--I will keep U in mind if got extra freelance work. We hired the ex-Golf Punk writer and radio DJ to do food reviews, FYI.

DG_Man--Glad to see you again. The rain delay really threw my (shoddy) playing rhythm off--maybe it was the three or four Singh beers while wating for the rain to cease?

Anyways, very wet golf courses are NOT one of my prefered playing conditions.

I enjoyed my chat with you and FrosTEE at the event.

This morning I realised that beer, wine and whisky should not be consumed together and in large amounts.

definitely agree with you on this point, it should be either beer and whiskey, or wine and whiskey, less wastage! affraid affraid

True, MT.

Add some KTV antics after the game and you have probably had a bad golf day but a fun evening.
