PostSubject: Random musings after 3 straight days of golf   Sat Aug 11, 2012 1:13 am

I just finished playing 3 straight days of golf for the first time in I don't know how long at TMCC Gardens, MBGC and TMCC Tampines and here are some random thoughts:

1. My old, out-of-shape body is not as weak as I feared and I am not experiencing any side effects (no back aches, no nipple burns, no groin strains). Nothing to be especially proud of, given that it was 3 days of buggy on course, but still, if you know me, I make Paul Goydos look like an athlete.....even so, I think I'll let my wife carry my chubby kids this weekend just in case......

2. I am starting to question the Law of Diminishing Returns....I thought playing on three consecutive days would eventually make me a bit sick of golf but having players where you enjoy their company is hugely important and thanks to GR, I played with 3 different groups and had a blast each day.....actually, I can't wait to play again....but since I wish to remain married, I shall be resting this weekend....

3. I played like crap all three days but all it takes is that one ripped drive, that one flushed iron and that one putt that broke 2 ways from 20 feet and dived into the middle of the cup that makes me forget all the topped drives and shanked shots........

4. When Guy purses his lips it looks like CeciliaCheung's kitty cat....just less hairy...

5. They say it's not how you drive but how you arrive.....after 3 days playing with bombers where I am consistently out-driven by 30m - 50m, give me TourSwing's drive and I'll arrive a lot faster and closer to the pin.....

6. I always thought teeing off before the ladies tee was the most humiliating thing in golf.....i was wrong.....having TourSwing's 21* hybrid 5m behind a drive I just crushed, or his 19* hybrid 10m ahead feels much worse........

7. Some courses are just too hard for a hacker like me.......and TMCC Gardens has my number......

8. It was easier getting to a single h'cap than maintaining it......

9. I will no longer be playing Vegas....the thrill is gone.....it shall be Super vegas or Banker-Player from now on.....

10. Speaking of which, SV and BP brings out the dark side in everyone.....evil laughter was heard whenever a ball found it's way into one of MBGC's pot bunkers.....and surprisingly, it wasn't coming from me.......

GF..

My apologies for not making you work for My $$$ yesterday...

It was too easy and perhaps unfulfilling for you...

Fixed some things today and perhaps it would present you with more challenge next time..

Thanks for the game !
