PostSubject: My Wish to golf with every Bro/Sis in this Forum   Wed Oct 01, 2014 3:46 pm

I was fiddling and thinking about nothing and this thought just came out of the blue and therefore the big ridiculous plan.


I wish one day I have the opportunity to golf with each and every brother and sisters in this forum and wonder how long will it take to complete the cycle. At the moment, there are 8277 users.


To form a flight, assuming I golf with 3 different bros/sis each week, I would require 2759 rounds to complete my mission. So the following are the calculations.


8277 users divide by 3 users = 2759 rounds
2759 rounds (week) divide by 52 weeks/year = 53 years


OMG! Shocked I need 53 years to complete the cycle. I would long be gone from this mortal world by then.


Okay, to hasten things up a bit, let's say I golf twice a week with 3 different bros/sis, I would still require 26.5 years to complete the cycle. Would that be possible? That means I would be around 85 by the time complete the cycle, and that, assuming I am still physically fit to swing a club.


Geez!

Bro, you are right. Play 9 holes can cut down the time by half. That means 13 years, if I play twice a week. So by then I should be 71 or 72.

Still working?
only weekend worrier?

No chance lah.

How about TUAN PAI?????

This way U played with 23 ppl per game.

u NEED 360 games to complete.
That is 10 years.

ANN lah

ONLY the good die young.

Dont forget some of this so call registered ppl have double identity,
some dont stay here in singapore, 
Some are sales ppl that watches over wat is new,

Some dont want to play with U and there are some that U chose not.

Den dont forget there are some that cannot play on week ends.

U will be lucky if 50% respond to You.

SO IF THOSE RESPONDED, GO ENJOY

Bro ther TDO,
U 58 this year? - Will be 59 in 2 months.
Still working? - Yes, working. If not, how to play golf. Not rich like some bros here.
only weekend worrier? You mean warrior, not worrier. I never worry when playing golf, even if my game is screwed up. My only worry is when I cannot golf. That would be the biggest worry.

No chance lah. - Never mind if no chance. It's just my wishful thought. It will never materialise.

How about TUAN PAI????? - What is that? Cannot understand this language.
Every week end U organise 6 flights and jump car every 3 hole. - I may like golf a lot but not that crazy because I can at the drop of the hat just give up the game if circumstances force me to. This is where I am crazy.
This way U played with 23 ppl per game. - Even if I am 18, I will die of exhaustion.

u NEED 360 games to complete. - This sure cannot tahan.
That is 10 years. - 10 years. I think I can. After that not sure. Mind willing body not.

ANN lah - I very ann one. That's why want to give up golf but always ask if got slot call me. So far, nobody want to jio me. Maybe I am too old for the many youngster here because I might slow them down. But you will be surprised.

ONLY the good die young. - If this saying is true, my day might be up. I don't do harm to people, intentionally, and still have to die young. But I am no longer young, so technically, I am "pai lang". And pai lang get to play unlimited golf, courtesy of wife.

Dont forget some of this so call registered ppl have double identity, - Never mind these people. I can live with them. I have more identities than them and have be known as Ah Lek, Fred, Freddy, Ah Huat, Panjang (Don't know why), Pang, Puan, Phua, Lao eh, etc...
some dont stay here in singapore, - It's ok if they don't stay here. To make things easier, and if I can afford, I go to them.
Some are sales ppl that watches over wat is new, - Sales people are also people and can be golfers too. In this forum, there are only golfers.

Some dont want to play with U and there are some that U chose not. - Welllll, You are one of those who don't want to play with me. I know. Invited since last Christmas and still waiting for it to happen. And, no, I don't have people that I know of here that I don't want to play with. I am easy with anyone if they don't find me a bother.

Den dont forget there are some that cannot play on week ends. - I can play weekdays too once in a while. Just take leave.

U will be lucky if 50% respond to You. - I will be lucky if 1% respond because 1% = 83 forumers.

SO IF THOSE RESPONDED, GO ENJOY - So far, nobody jio yet. But it's ok. I have my regular Sat (alternate) & Sun morning games and am looking forward to it whenever Thursday is here. And OMG, that's today.
So far, I played with about 10 bros and 1 sis here. Will not name them and have to ask their permission lest I embarrass them and myself.


Anyway, my mission is just a fleeting and fantasy thought. I know it will never happen. There are some who prefer to golf with their own kakis. I have asked to join when they jio in the forum some time back. And I am one of the earliest to respond within an hour (I think) so I can know more people (No, I am not in Sales, so don't worry). But after a few days, that person told me that it's full. I guess they have their preferred kakis. If this is the case, he should not have jio people in the forum and should simply pm his preferred kakis. But this is life.  Smile

Bro Slinger,


Geez! Didn't know we met before or recall. Short term memory taking effect. My apologies. Are you referring to the range at JCC 2 years ago? If that was it, it was a one off because I am too lazy to range. It was organised by either Patrick or Maria. Now the poor memory is getting to me.


But thanks for the invite. I am also not available next week as I am taking part in the 25th Singapore Open Senior Amateur Championship. I am fine whichever day of the week 2 weeks from now. Just let me know which day you prefer. MBGC, NSRCC or Sembawang is fine with me.


Maybe you can help form a flight or 2.

Bro Denmeister, how about 2 Sats from now, that is, 18 Oct'14. Not sure if I can walk the entire course though. My last visit was something like 4 years ago. Do they now allow long pants with side pockets? Smile

When I last played at JGCC, I have to rent a pair of pants from the club for Rm10 because of the side pocket. All my golfing pants have side pockets. Looks like I have to wear my working pants on that day. But they have allowed bermudas, without the side pockets. That's the last I know of. I wonder why the ban on side pockets. Rolling Eyes


I fondly remember hearing the donkey bleating as we play Hole 3 and 4. Guess it's no longer there ever since the passing of the current Sultan's father. Very Happy

Shorts are allowed now. However, no side pockets.

I think the donkey died a long time ago as I have never heard it since I joined the club.

On the contrary, I think the present Sultan closed the mini zoo owned by his father. The animals were donated elsewhere, from what I heard. He also requested for the name Royal to be removed from the club and don't want to be associated with it as he is not a golfer like his father.
