Kakis are people whom u can enjoy with be it u are playing well or bad.

It's never about the score but more of the bonding; jokes, stir shit, talk cock & etc in the course that make it priceless.

If it's solely for the game, then it's better off searching for new kakis Liao.

if i were you...i'd stick to my old friends...go back..play from white...shoot in the 100s.....

I would never do that to you. I wish I could but I suck at the sport. If anything, I'd use those terms as follows:

"Crap, I F'd UP again"

"Please don't press me to increase bets!"

"Aiyah, paiseh... I almost killed the birdie with my stray shot"


pls allow me to add another one for u....

Some people are so serious during social game that they talked about 1 or 2 club lengths for ball drop, whether get penalty 1- or 2-stroke,  or whether it's a free relief blah blah.

So serious as if it's monthly medal.

Agree that for social game we should not be so focused on the rules. But for golfers who are keen to participate in tournaments, they should make it a habit to observe and practise the correct rules. I remember at a stroke play tournament organised at Raffles CC, many players, out of habit, picked up their "less then putter length" ball instead of putting out as required under the rules and were penalised, including some who actually played well and would have been in contention. Learn the rules but do not let it slow you down in a social game.

My therapist warned me not to bring this one up (or out) again.

Bro, you didn't lose any friends, you just didn't start making friends who play at your standard Smile
Keep up the good work in the game. We should all be positive thinking to be able to enjoy the game! Cheers.
