Duval... don't bluff. You're the classic example of a golfer whose drives are not as long as others but your short game is deadlier than most. I can outdrive you but I can't out-arrive you. For you, anything from 150m in is deadly.

Hi Chien,

generally my games will be weekends as I head back to SG for meetings but usually spend the weekend before driving back.

I have some leave planned in May and will probably be back for some Golf and to take advantage of the CIMB card ...

look forward to a game then ...

Back to our Topic...

I am really rooting for Luke Donald for this Masters...

He's considered short hitter on tour, but, such steady player and great personality...

cheers

The young Chinese guy, Guan Tianlang is awesome for a person of his age. Yesterday he played better than a bunch of season pros like Nick Watney, Hunter Mahan, Ian Poutler, Carl Petersson, Henrik Stenson, Louis Oosthuizen, Stewart Cink, Bubba Watson, Padriag Harrington, Ben Curtis, etc.
