11 Aug 2009 - 14 Aug 2009 10th Singapore National Amateur Championship
Tournament Info Entry Form Drawlist Warren Golf & Country Club

http://www.sga.org.sg/gms_wb_Tournaments.aspx?CatID=5

Anyone here taking part? Any updates?
As usual, minimal coverage in our local media.
1st time at Warren, I think 3 years at Kranji? ( black tee ) and the rest at Sembawang.
Great opportunity to see the local boys in action.

One thing for sure, the course is not going to be a walk in the park especially if they play gold. The rough is much thicker than usual and really hard to take the ball out as I experienced it yesterday. The WGCC amatuers are the ones on advantage as it it their home course but I am not going to rule out the rest.

Yesterday greens was at 9.8 but grass was not cut and greens were not rolled, so after this morning's cutting and rolling, I am expecting it to run at 11.5-12.0. Like what S70B call it, warren greens are like potato chips cos its super undulating. So course knowledge will have a lot of advantage.

Length is a big issue for shorthitters ( read me ), the super hard/fast greens 12-13 & the most cruel pin positions ( thats what the organisers call them ) is no joke.
I once 5 putted 1 hole ( and the organisers where cheering and thanking me for the entertainment ). Embarassed

haha... duval, the scratch player playing in the 90s is not a real scratch player.. he is one of my friends... every week we have 2 games when i was in london.. on a good day his score is 76.. bad day can go up to 80+++...

just that his HI is maintained very low cos he kena penalty score from his club.. hehe... anyway... it does indeed look very challenging...

After a game at MBGC last Sat, "i" also came back and told me that Uncle Jake is "King of Up and Down". Uncle Jake must have been a great inspiration; on Monday, "i" came back with his lowest ever score from white ; he said he achieved several up and down for the round... Very Happy

Thank you Jake Beer

Cheers,

RS: Wat is Up & Down ah?

Is this similar to 'In & Out'?

Which can be very satisfying also....

Hahaha! CK, S70B so cruel to Roystonnn... Razz

Roy, here's a quick link that explains what up and down is. If Jake is indeed king of up and downs, he must have saved Pars many times during the game! Very Happy
