Will be heading over the sea for a game (golf lah... what else?).

ALONE.

Am I mad or what? Rolling Eyes

I am like sooooooo newbie you know? Laughing

What should I look out for?
Must I study the course beforehand (wah?? exagerrating horrr??)
Or the dear caddy will advise me huh?

Really sotong ... paiseh!!! Embarassed

Hmmm ... maybe I should just go and enjoy the scenery, the breeze and the massage!!! What a Face

that depends on where you are going.

I for one would just do a warm up before the game. Hit 20-30 ball accross all the clubs. Relax and then enjoy it. Take your time and take it easy. If course if empty then you can play 2nd ball from same lie AFTER analyzing the first result (if it's not good).

Caddy will give pointer on where to aim at what distance. Also ask Caddy on red stake, water, canal, bunker etc, the usual stuff. On the green lie, speed, slope will be told by Caddy.

Just chill, relax and enjoy it !! what fun in golf if you don't get to enjoy it.. Smile

dun use up all ur energy on the 1st day hor...remember u still got 2nd day to cheong !!....

play alone is the best time to learn from caddy...most of them can play and some can play well, but give them a bit more tips...that is their living

just keep a lookout, if there is no golfers behind you, you can practise with more than 1 ball...but if there are someone behind you...then just move on, dun spend too much time trying.

last but not least...must go enjoy the scene, the sea, the sun, the grass, the sand and of course the massage......enjoy !!!

Physical Warm up! Then reach the course early and head to the driving range for 80 or 100 balls first.

I guess these are the 2 things that I consistently fail to do because my mates don't warm up.

The dear caddy can advise you on the yardage but important thing is to know yourself. If you know you can hit the driver off the fairway without using a 3W and you have 200 yards left to the pin on a monster Par 5, why not?

Don't forget to tip the caddy!

Hi GJ, I guess your elbow problem already resolved? Hope so. I am becoming a newbie like you soon as I have not been playing for more than 2 months now. As for my chronic elbow problem, it somewhat felt better. I am not taking any more pain killer and I sort of don't feel the pain at all for everyday life. But when I strained it through doing some heavy work, I can feel it later on. MY not playing is not because of my elbow but because of some unresolved personal issue but in a way it is helping with the recovery. Thank goodness something good came out of this sacrifice. I hope you have the Band-It elbow guard. If yes, wear it when you are playing. It will help you to reduce your injury. Have a good game. Cheers. cheers

Hi golfjoy, looks like your elbows are better or totally healed for you to chiong 18 holes. Anyway, like the others mentioned just enjoy your game. But one thing I must say....to go alone and play....RESPECT cos I won't be able to do that.

(Not asking Wilkang this question, he will ask me to quit! kekeke)

given that the course is so popular...i doubt you can have the whole course....

You will survive lah but maybe with lots of injuries...

1st day, time yourself..maybe not more than 4.5 hr since u are playing single ball, reason is u still have the 2nd day to go, so dun drain urself too much on the 1st day. If the caddy for the 1st day is good, ask for her name and tell her you will come back next day and see if she willing to caddy for you again. If she is not good, then 2nd day use another caddy....but regardless what, since u are single ball, better to tips her a bit more.

Weather is not so good recently, be prepared for it...that course could be very wet and windy

last but not least, always keep a mindset to go there and enjoy, not suffer....so no need to push urself too hard...sometime can even skip some holes if u are too tired.

enjoy !!

Yup yup .... WARM up is very important!!!
I'll begin by making a few smalltalks with the caddy just to break the ice.
Maybe pass her some lollipops or something... then....

titu

Not 100% but doc gave the greenlight. Just hafta watch it abit (which I will!!)

Try not to use that elbow. Use the other one. I know it's hard, but try.

I'm using an elbow guard when I play. Seems to help. Smile

Thank you sooooo much ... you get well soon too!! Face Hug
