from you statement, golf is a competitive game vs your opponent, you always think about how to win!


i view it differently from you, maybe thats why you are the Cobra!

If golf is not competitive... then why you happy about breaking 90??? Its whether your competitior is another golfer or your score the week before. Everything surrounds competition lah.. having better clubs to hit it further is also about competition.. if you are just out there to hack around... then no need to change clubs liao loh. Dont even need to go on course... just go range and hit balls...

given a choice, with my limited capability n patience now..

i will choose driving distance..... if i can drive consistently 260m n above... i dun mind sux in all other department....

but then again... i prefer to enjoy my golf n have lots of laughter n fun with my kaki's over having a good game and be serious for the whole round....

i am not a pro, i paid $$$ to pak golf... so i think enjoyment is most impt....

I mention I view it differently, i view it as a competition vs myself, hitting further, or scoring lower, its to improve, more of a personal feat. Golf to me is different kind of sport vs other ball games/sports like Tennis/Basketball/soccer/ etc, where it is always played with an opponent. The objective is scoring against someone, golf is scoring against the the course or yourself. In the process of scoring against the course or yourself, you make comparisons with your mate or opponent playing with you. But how well your mate/opponent plays can have very little or no bearing to how you play, which is different in other sports, its less head-on, with the exception of Match-play.

Reading between the lines here, but from what I read, you are playing this different from me, thats what I meant, because if I were to say the same line. It would come out as "To me, iron play and short game is still the key to lower scores."

We just view the game differently, but i think the end result is we both want to play better, score lower, drive longer, hit closer to the pin.

I agree with duffy. A good ballstriker (iron play) will trump the rest.

how come you always praise others game, but never your own?

you hit it pretty decent in terms of distance, get it really close with the irons, have a short game that gets you home in 2 and sometimes 3. Plays consistenly in the 80s.

Eiji, my game is as it. I play more for the fun of it. It is also fun to see others play and improve on their game. Like yours and TS. I remembered playing our first game and that with TS and now seeing the way you guys have improved! Very Happy

I think you guys have been snorting the beer rather than just drinking it.

I drive 240m... totally... after my 3rd shot.

Very confusing. But to sum it up... you prefer stroke play more than match play... so next time i know what kind of game format to play with you.

To say that you are not playing with your opponent, its not really applicable when stakes are involve. For stroke play, like most touranments, we play conservative, we do not multiply the errors. We can always park the putt or lay up and hope for 1 chip 1 putt.

But for matchplay, the above does not apply. you must either safe play or go for it. If you really need to hole the putt, you must ensure that your ball pass the hole, dun pass hole, no chance at all. But pass the hole, and especially downhill putt, the result maybe worst. And the score on one hole doesnt really affect the next hole but stroke play, its has alot of impact.

Anyway... this weekend, on your vegas, you might see a difference.... must think about it... sometimes be hero on one hole, might end up zero on the next....

NB, i think I OT again..... but some good material for some betting game.
