since its raining and the temperature is like 10 degrees, we are staying indoors at the moment. Nick is doing an interview with BBC and the rest of us are hanging out at Nicklaus Wong (a student at St Andrews who was mistaken as my son who share the same birthday as moi).....













End of Commercial.....























there should be another 100 photos in the folder...

time to go back to work...

enjoy...

photos are taken by Joanne (Nick Middleton's wife)...i cannot disclose who is using Zen as they all have management agreements that we have to adhere to.

also met some very influential people in the golfing circles - including the getty image photographer, some very good caddies, r&a officials, etc.

the big players are very friendly - garcia, stenson, mcdowell, harrington, ishikawa, jaidee, watson...and the worse is a commentator by the name of faldo!

tw was intense and as friendly as a traffic cop..played the practice round and walk off on the 17th in his usual "gentlemanly" fashion while hundreds of fans was waiting for him at the 18th.

Have received the pics from the boss but since I dun think I can post 100 pics here, they are all updated on BFG FB photos.

Just search for BFG and you'll see the pics in there!

Enjoy!

as you know by now that you can play a 17 stroke difference on 2 days. the course is not scary but the weather and the wind can be really testing.

being at the wrong place at the wrong time can have very serious consequences.

its almost 10 pm but lots of good natural light at St Andrews still...TW is just about finished his 18th hole.

the guys who will approved what the players used are wearing suits...can you believe that.

we got many players sending their caddies to check out the putters and they asked more question afterwards. there are pickups but again we cannot name who.

do you think TW wants to switch or was asked to. these days the putter contract is worth at least $2k to $4k per tournament and bonus can add up too.

btw the remainder putters are not coming back to Singapore...watch out for them at The Greenbrier Classic at West Virginia starting from the 29th July.

btw all the response we have about the putters have been more than positive.

Nice to hear that, DGman. It is really nice when all your thinking and hard work finally pay off at the end of the day, even when that means there will be no ZIM for me at the near future... Shocked
