PostSubject: Returning to golf after 12 years   Thu Sep 08, 2011 4:12 pm

good day everyone

After playing for 3-4 years (mainly with my dad and his friends), i stopped. And now, after 12 years, i decided to pick up the clubs again a few months back. so, i am effectively a beginner and have a lot to learn from the fine folk here.

i have been reading this forum quite a bit and just wanted to say hi to everyone here and hope that i can learn from the experts here!

I just hit the range today after 2-3 weeks away from the game, and it felt like an eternity!!! Very Happy

But I kind off know the feeling ... I left golf when i went off to the US for college, and only started playing again last year when I moved to Singapore ... Thats around 12-13 yrs as well, though I did play a handful of rounds during that time ...

The main difference I noticed was the enhanced technology: better equipment, trackman and other launch monitors, and most of all the internet and its videos and forums

Good luck!

Mox, Lee is one of the experts here btw.

And TourSwing, seeing how you hit the balls, it is as if you never left the game!
affraid

Anyway, welcome Mox!

Thanks for the welcome, guys.

Tourswing, yes indeed I am facing a load of new tech/equipment.

when i last played, people were still wearing metal-spiked shoes and i dont recall seeing hybrids around....

Ahh yes , metal spikes indeed ... still remember the noise shoes would make on the path walking towards the first tee!! I had a Big Bertha back then, and it seemed HUGE! and now we have 460cc drivers Swing

I used to hit it equally far back then (as a young teenager)!!! But sideaways!!! Made me lose interest in the game ... Sad
But now , countless hrs of youtube and forums, have helped change me from a SLICER to a DRAWer, from picking the ball to compressing it, etc ... Lifes so much better now Very Happy

Asahi is too kind here.

I went to the range a few times 20 years back, but nothing about it compelled me to return.

I re-started about 2-3 years back, and whoa! What a world of difference.

The industry and the technology available have both come a long way in 12 years. Hybrids, SGI clubs, better ball technology, improved teaching methods, and many other developments have made this game more accessible and enjoyable.

The net revolutionised how people got together, shared their interests, and learnt off each other.

Welcome back. There's never been a better time to be playing this game.

Hi Lee,

I notice you have a few of the revered miura clubs.

could you let me know how can one get their irons apart from ordering direct?

perhaps even somewhere to see and feel the clubs in singapore?

my office is in raffles place so mbgc is pretty nearby and i would love to join you guys at the ssn one of these days if time/work permits.

and, thanks for your kind offer but it looks like your irons are the LE blades? if so, i dont think i am up to the mark to play blades... but thanks very much for the offer anyway and hope to see you at mbgc soon.

Mox, I also took a long hiatus (about 15 years) before I started to play again. And, it's been fun. It's not so much the game as it is the company for me. I never thought I'd find a bunch of folks as crazy as me... worse, they're crazier Smile

Anyway, welcome back to the sport. You'll start to wonder why you left it in the first place.

U can get it from Torque Golf in Laguna. Apparently, they are the distributors for South East Asia.
