I practice my swing with a cigarette in my hand, then analyse the trail of smoke to see the swing plane. clown

Hospitalised immediately after consulting Dr Tong from Orthopaedic Associates. The trigger finger was infected.. Was on drip for 3 days and was also seen by a hand specialist there. A splint was made and i had to wear it 24/7. To stop golf till it recovers. I didnt. BUAY TAHAN. That was in Feb09.
How it happened? I ranged 4 or 5 times that week + 1 round, I have a bad golf grip I think, a very strong grip, 4 knuckles and I have been doing this for a very very long time..
Lee Carrington once told me, u want to suffer for 3 mths ( change grip ) or for the next 30 yrs? geek
I tape the finger with Strappal when i play now. Still hurts. ( excuse for playing in the 90s ) give me more strokes?

I once snapped my friends NS-Pro shaft at the grip while trying his club. It caused a gash in my hand and it started bleeding. The cut was quite deep. I went to the toilet, washed the wound and got some bandage from the staff at the range and continued hitting balls!!1

when 1 first started, $150 is the most i will spend on a driver (spoiled by GN), nowdays $300 is a good bargain, $400 is a good buy and $500 is normal pricing for a decent driver.

Same for putters. Nowdays will having thoughts that a SC is not a such a bad investment.

So, here's the big question: Did you see your game improve after such intensive practising?

practise swing while sleepin? How u do that? keke.
Wa seh. this is extreme crazy. haha!!

In the beginning, i told cfo tat I would at most play around 2 times at Mandai EGC per month.
For 2 to 3 mths, it went exactly like tat.

then I started goin JB, 2 times a month which I told CFO that it shall be this frequent.
For 2 to 3 mths, it went exactly like that.

Now I play 3-5 times a month which I told CFO that this is max.. no more revision to budget.
4 to 5 mths, consistently like tat.
Luckily, 1 mth oni got 4-5 saturdays, if not gona revise budget again. Razz

Any point of time, I am standing and doing nothing (eg. waiting), my hand will start swinging..
duno y.. jus cun curb the habit the swing, be it one hand or both hands.. Very Happy

I'm surprised she didn't practice kickboxing on you while she was in her sleep Smile

Luckily she is not into kickboxing man or else I might be dead by now.

It was really quite bad. I talked in my sleep about golf, I practice swing in my sleep, and god knows what else I did in my sleep. At one stage, my wife has to cover her face with a large pillow to prevent getting hit again. Luckily we didn't end up sleeping separately.

Haha, fortunately it did. I just picked up the game seriously about 3 years ago.

And working on the short game, especially chiping and pitching the ball within 120 yds really helped me enjoy the game more.
