When I won a stableford format OAAG pro-am at Keppel a few years ago, I was hung over from drinking too much beer the night before at a few Duxton Hill pubs.

I must have slept only 4 hours also.

I guess thinking too much and getting stressed out is detrimental to a good round sometimes.

There were no swing thoughts in my head that I can remember at that time--just an attitute of 'lets get this game over with as quickly and painlessly as possible'.

I certainly did not think I would win anything--even any lucky draw prizes.

Dunno.

I played my best round without warming up at the range. Just walked up, and teed up, and was super relaxed. I hate playing with people who pester me to spend more time reading the putt, etc etc.

No betting involved is the key to a good game, especially during tournament - IMHO only.

Full focus and concentration just on the game.

For me.....its all about minimizing expectation......

if ball can move = happy

if ball can go reach and go in hole regardless of how many strokes = happy like siao

if can do it within double par per hole = happy like bird

more importantly .... if got chance to play golf = happy like siao bird


come come.....hope to see you all at June monthly game....

guys, i believe some of them out there suffered from inconsistent games... one week i can be playing like a beginner and then the next, winning from the same guys that thrashed me last week (becos of the strokes given).. any suggestions to resolve this? Razz

Ashai: I was tired out once after heavy beer session, slept 2 hrs then golf. Came back with 82, my best score yet. No swing thots best.

It works only sometimes as there are too many other variables involved. Usually, if I drink too much the night before (or during) a game, my scores get worse after the 12th hole because of fatigue or alcohol intoxication! The only good thing about the latter situation is I am too sloshed to care!

Itsuki: one week i can be playing like a beginner and then the next, winning

That's golf.

It's like an enticing mistress who offers untold pleasure (low scores), but only delivers on her promises occassionally (unless you are a successful tour pro then you may get satisfaction on a more regular basis).

Other times, she will break your heart when you least expect with double pars or worse and gross scores 100+ for most avid amatuer golfers.

That's the lure and vexation of this 'sport'!

Itsuki,

Some days after an expecially bad day of golf (100+) for me, I am certain postage stamp collecting will be my only avid hobby henceforth.

However, I postponed changing over to stamp collecting after I shot 2+ (including two birdies) at Executive Golf Course last Saturday even when I was the ONLY (fool) golfer still playing during the thunderstorm downpour.

But buying those postage stamp display books are never too far from my mind.

i used to play other ball games.. but none even come close to the amount of excitement, frustration and stress that I get from golf... it is not that we are in S&M.. but each time we get whacked, the only thing we want to do is to go back and prove ourselves... sad thing is, the harder we try, the worse we get...

Golf IS a form of sado-masochistic addiction.

But it's still a healthy physical activity rather than just sit and watch TV/movies or play video games all day!

Very Happy
