You should have been there. One of the most entertaining rounds of golf I have had in a very long time with so many different weather conditions requiring all kinds of mental and physical adjustments to the constantly changing playing conditions. Dry to wet, to very wet, to not so wet, to wet and warm. Enough to drive anyone mad. Play until we start to lose count of the snakes towards the end, that's how much the changing weather was affecting all of us.

Is this what all the buayas/buayees mean when they say they going for mountain training? ROFL

Oh ya...that too was impressive.. Laughing

thank you for your kind support... jocolor

And also Par 3 nearest to pin for a birdie...long downhill shot. Very Happy

tat one lost to birdman's slamdunk lah Basketball

hahaha...all i heard was.."Oh Shit!!!"...ball proceeds to hit the flag and into the cup... Laughing Laughing

Yah loh...dont u just hate it..when people go "NB, Oh Shit" and then u see their ball go in for birdie??
Birdman can change his nick to "Hao Lian" pig

In the words of many many buayas/buayees... "that one heng ah.." Really! Wanted a little bit more run to get the ball to the hole but gave it too much juice. The moment I hit, I knew it. That's why I "NB, oh shit!". Next second, one bounce on the green, hit the the pin and slam dunk straight in.

That sure felt good! (With due apologies to my opponents). Made up for all the pars that ended the first pairing of sixes after 4 holes, of which I was at the receiving end.

Eden, sorry sorry, forgot about your shot. That one fantastic. Curl around the cliff, over small stream and onto the green near the pin tucked onto a small corner with bunker in front. At that time too shell shocked, so my memory erased the unfortunate episode (for me).

But it was one of the most fun and memorable rounds of golf I've had in a long time. All thanks to my flight mates, Eden (shotshaping NTP Champion), ZhenXua (long driving par par monster), and Wilkang (250m downhill 3 wooder over the green into the water snake eater).

Many flubs and fantastic shots with hot sun, heavy downpour, cooling weather, drizzle, then hot sun again, all in one round of golf. Crazy crazy day! But so very fun!

Wah lao, Birdman, now I know playing with Eden, Wilkang and Zhenhua must ask for strokes liao.. haha

First thing only all ask for strokes? I don't think you have to worry when playing these three. Only worry when you don't bring your A game and they have theirs. The company alone with them was worth the while, and all bets were small and friendly. I may have listed the fantastic play, but each and everyone one of us had our beginner moments too. In fact, too many to list. But in the interest of friendship, I shall not list them unless they themselves do so. The ribbing shall be confined to the golf course during the game itself. Suffice to say, one hole there were 8 snakes between the four of us. You go figure how many balls in the water, bunker, and three putts there were for us all lor? That was an extremely funny hole. Only wish there was video of it to share, sure laugh until die. We did...

There have been many attempts to list the buayas and buayees amongst us, let me be the first to name the ones (I have had the privilege of playing with) who play with honour, integrity, and all fairness in this dignified game that is golf. I will also start a separate thread on this.

Not in any order of merit:

!. Eden
2. Zhenxua
3. Wilkang
4. Sunny
5. Technospaz
6. Eiji

Let me just add on to my earlier post to say that we played sixes, snakes, and skins. Yet there was no asking for and bargaining of strokes. We just decided simply on the games and the bets, then set out to play, all level.

We were there simply for the golf and camraderie, not to win.

And I just realized how refreshing that is, not having to go through the rigmarole of haggling for strokes, especially when we implicitly know that it is an attempt to gain an immediate edge of one over the other.

Thanks Eden, Zhenxua, and WIlkang for letting me experience the true spirit of the game all over again.

Disclaimer - next time won't be so stupid oredi, or sure kena slaughter one. ROFL

Thanks bro, and I enjoyed playing with you too, especially seeing you pull out all the stops and go for garang shots.

Disclaimer important ma.... doesn't work when one comes up against buayas and buayees. Then I also need to protect myself, or this bird kena roasted, eaten, and the bones get spit out.

Only that day with you bro that I won, this time I lost two sixes. Zhenxua mojo very strong, Even if he don't play well, somehow he inspire his teammate to pull a rabbit out of the hat. Evidence is that I only won one sixes, when I partner him, and that was also the time I slam dunk for birdie. When he partner Eden, Eden made that magic slice to the green near the pin.

So you say la...

Hi Birdman,

I will be delighted to have a game with you. When? Very Happy

I have the honour of playing with both Wilkang and Zhenhua (only if he don't ask for stokes. hehe) and you are right.. very fun people to play golf with. Generally pretty relaxed games with them and also TCSS while on the course as well.. You are right, if your game is not up to par on the days you play with them, you will be slaughtered, like i found out last week. lol!

Today, will have the honour of playing with another 2, Eiji and Eden (the Es, haha). Never played with them before but heard that they are good.

Lastly, one more name I have added in. Be careful of this guy. In his good days, he can kill... ROFL

!. Eden
2. Zhenxua
3. Wilkang
4. Sunny
5. Technospaz
6. Eiji
7. Mizzy

so the honor should be yours. all bow to the buayas cheers

bro, you did not contribute a single snake on that hole, and that says a lot about your consistency.

my trademark topping alone contributed 2 snakes and 2 indon PR Embarassed

Hahaha... Luckily I hit my shot just after Wilkang. I was still very aware of the water (day before already dunked one in), so opted for the safer option and went left, top also still got grass underneath. If I had gone after all of you, I may have been too psyched by all the water snaking and joined you all for a swim too.

Thank you for your seeing me up. I learnt my lesson the hard way so just try to keep the ball in play, and rely on chip and putt, instead of trying to keep up with the long hitters like you. I only cheong when my swing is 90 to 100% percent on, which is sadly very rare these days.
