Just got back home from the game. Some quick updates:

1. Weather was great. Not too hot since the clouds were looming but not a single drop of rain.
2. Octville is in the process of upgrading which is great but it still needs a lot of work.
3. Fairways are not well irrigated but very playable.
4. Greens were alright. A little slow in the morning cause they were wet but played well soon after.
5. Buggies were crap. Of the 4 buggies (2 flights), 3 had to be replaced. 2 had a faulty motor/starter while the other suffered a tyre puncture (and before you ask, it wasn't mine).

Overall, a great game. It was good to meet up with the buayas and Her Majesty Queen Buayee. Also great to finally meet focus77 and rangereye on the course. Great bros Smile

Game-wise, you guys figure out who's who, ok?

1. Without using a driver and keeping to 5Ws, this golfer played a 93 (which included a 10 and an 8).

2. Mostly using a hybrid and a 5W, this golfer suffered the first 9 but roared back at the second 9, which included a birdie. The hybrid and 5W shots were straighter than straight too!!

3. This golfer enjoyed spending time flanking the other golfers by taking the more scenic nature route (through the forest, trees and thick rough). ??

4. This golfer claims to have played 110+ in the week before (though this excuse is a weekly thing) but plays very well... and loves saying "yes!!" (followed by the air punch and raised knee).

5. This golfer managed to backspin a drive to before the ladies teebox and had to buy a jug for the flight.

6. This golfer managed to sidespin a wedge shot and almost killed the playing partner. Talk about a 90˚ shank Razz

7. This golfer launched balls high-high but somehow, they weren't accurate. When asked why, this golfer said, "I want to be invited back to play some more" so you know... buaya tendencies are surfacing Wink

8. Looking somewhat flustered, this golfer was displeased with distance. From 280m, this golfer was depressed that 20-30m was lost because of a change in shaft. Also claimed to have played green-side tennis (pitch from one side to the other and back again) today.

(The first one to get all 8 correct will receive a *smooch* courtesy of Her Majesty) Wink

Regardless, it was a good game. Thanks to all who participated and I look forward to playing with all of you again.

In the meantime, 6 of the 8 will be back in JB tomorrow to take on Starhill.... the journey continues Smile
1. focus77
2.
3.Techno
4. JT
5.
6. Choco
7.
8.

Not too sure abt the rest. Let others fill it in.

hahahah!!! ChrisD good try! i was laughing at one of ur answers! lol!

kudos to TS! no one can be faster than you in typing 'essays' after a game! keke.. though i played like shit (as usual) but i thoroughly enjoyed our negotiation talks after the game at the clubhouse! ROFL

JT, bo bianz.. u won people too much $ liao, so gotta pay back lor.. next time dun win so much la..

stupid mata caught me say i nvr put on sit belt...... sigh.....

but frankly, i would rather use the RM40 to treat my frens more on food.....
like i say, i play golf to enjoy the company n try to remb good shots if any... whatever money won by anybody, it will be used to treat makan.. (tht's passed down to me from my kakis which i find it excellent. )

nbz... msia mata.... forever the same....

Dont complain about them,

they are a group of kind civil servant, provide fast and efficient settlement for offender, with low cost somemore.

and best of all, you can always reject their offer.

But, im wondering..... did anyone begin charge for the offend they did not commit ?

ok. now my thanks to the guys here. great game.

rangereye really good at drives too. nice crack. ball doesn't seem to land... maybe a non-conforming ball that do not follow the usual laws of gravity.

LinLauPeh... steady putts. unconventional swings and stances. but all damn zhun. btw, thanks for the air con bus.

JT... nuff said. everyone know how big buaya he is. ok. i got to ELABORATE. Tee box, all take out driver, only he take 5 wood tee off. guess who is the only one got par in the end?


I do hope to play with infamous spin king soon... just hope he dun spin me from octville to ponderosa...
TS/JL... hope to play with u again soon... no more throwing of clubs liao.
KC.. erm... i am staying far away from this char bor... unless she gimme 1-2-3.
focus77... i also want to do fist pump with u...

Haha thanks Jake bro! Took me the 1st few holes to realise my irons were going 1 club length longer than normally.

I flew quite a few greens which kinda blows.

Then there was 1 short par 4, 333m, teed off with my 4iron, and left 100m to the pin. My clubs were confirm haywired! Laughing

Then again, could be the tailwind and elevated tee Rolling Eyes

What's your current ball path? Draw or fade? Could be your swing plane instead of your swing Smile

Starburst player = one who sprays his shots everywhere and anywhere but straight...

No lah MC, it must have been the downwind and elevated tee really. Normally I carry my 4iron at most 190m on the range. It hovers around the 180m mostly hehe
