I think my Dad felt that I was lazing around doing nothing and given this, I should be doing some charity work.

I am now... feeding buayas.

Wonder if anyone is like my friend who is playing golf so that he can dress like a pimp, curse like a sailor, drive a cart like race car driver, and buaya the rest of us like a buaya?

Honestly, on a golf course, you see the true nature of a man. How do you react to a flushed drive? Do you repeat that with pulled sand wedge to the front bunker or do you hop, and stop it to a tap in birdie? Do you shoot a 7 on a par 5 and write down a 6?

So, it's a game within a game that hooked us and is also that which is making us coming back for more.

Happy New Year everyone.

The sports I played since school days was Basketball (when MJ ruled) and TV sports I watched was NBA. Each weekend games always ended with bruises or scratch mark. Also the youngsters are getting taller and bigger size. My "old" man body can no longer tahan the knocks.

One day, after coming back from my usual Sunday game with some bruises, my wife decided that I should call it a day from playing basketball and pick up golf. She signed up for a 4 pax lesson for us and another couple and the rest is history......

In fact, one of her girl friend commented that she is silly to encourage me to play golf (because golf is addictive and takes long hours). Basketball outing for me used to be only only 2-3 hrs whereas golf outing is ~ 5-6 hrs. Nowadays, I only play Golf and sports TV I watched is PGA.

I would like to thank my wife for introducing me to this game Smile

Cheers.

Almost the same story with me and my footballing career. Coming back with injuries after a football game didn't please my wife....

So here I am with golf....

Pardon me, but I was referring to Michael Jordan. But then, I agree that Magic Johnson was brilliant too....
