PostSubject: "Golf? So Boring!"   Tue Jul 09, 2013 6:40 pm

That used to be me.

Four months ago, me and three of my buddies decided to attend a coaching package because we were offered a good deal. I can safely say that now, all of us are well and truly infected with the bug.

Now, we hit the range at least twice on weekdays and play either here or up North on Saturdays.
I feel a burst of joy when i hear the sweet sound of my 7-iron destroying the poor golf ball that happened to be in its way... but that doesn't happen near often enough.
So, keep going lah. Chasing the 'high'. Lol.. it really is an addiction, I suppose.

From deciding to invest in a cheap set for the first two years, I'm now drooling over AP2 and Nike VR Pro irons, very tempted to make further investments and cut down the yards (hopefully..?).

In fact, I made my first second-hand purchase earlier today from bro Turbo, I was the lucky fella who got his Cleveland Classic Collection Putter.. (I'll definitely take good care of it!).

I'm lucky that I have a few good kakis, but it won't hurt to meet more, experienced golfers too!

So, hi everyone!

so happy to have you on board the forum sharing your joys of "golf hood " with us. remember to get your winesses and flight mates to sign on the birdie ball. Then keep it. Every ball has only one birdie, dont forget.

Hi haragolfer,

Wow! I did some quick research and found out its a 'fact' indeed, thanks to Ernie Els! We'll definitely implement this on course-days, thank you for sharing!!

it works for me. otherwise the reverse " post birdie fxxx up" happens. and of course that is why i cannot play better golf, what with all my excuses with superstitions.

Hey man, just like our individual golf swings, if the superstition works, that's good enough! Lol

Maybe my game would improve if I integrated some superstitions!

Derek is addicted to golf shopping. Some say he has more golf clubs than he has golf games in singapore.

Haragolfer, maybe I'll be joining Derek's ranks soon. Have already set aside space in my room for future purchases.
