6 March 2010...Here I come...all prepared to be one of the winners. If not one of the main winners, then, the winner of the Senior Golfer category...or at least a winner of 'C' medal. My mind was all set for the game.
My flight's scheduled tee-off time was 0835 hours. But we finally tee-off at 0905 hours...2nd last flight. The temperature for the first 9 was quite bearable but for the second 9, it was unbearably hot...it was about 37*C-40* C. We finished the game at 1405 hours. Because of the heat that spoilt my game...it was simply unbelievable that my gross was 105 and net 84. So unlike me...He...he...he. As an afterthought, I should not complain at all since my 82-year friend, Mong Khon, pulled his trolley throughout the 18 holes. He was in the last flight and did not use the service of the 'trolley puller'.
My flight mates were...
L to R: Nor Ibrahim, Ilham Widad, Junaidi, Cikgu Goon Keen Chee
Ilham Widah is a Form 2 student while Cikgu Goon is an active member of the 'Evergreen'. I'm very sure none of my flight members was in the winners' list since our scores were just so...so...lah!
The prize giving and dinner was held the same night and all golfers and spouses were invited to attend. HH Sultan of Kedah gave away the prizes...
As I said in previous articles on golf...it's a bonus if I play well...otherwise...que sera...sera. What is of utmost importance to me is that I'm so grateful to Almighty Allah that I'm still able to indulge in something I really enjoy doing in my twilight years.
BREAKING NEWS...'Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah'. I came out second (OCB) during the 'Evergreen' on 10 March 2010 over 9 holes. I made a blunder at hole #9 (Par 4) = 6...3 'on' 3 putts, otherwise I'm the Champ. Gross - 43, Net score - 33. Wow...What a golfer am I! He...he...he. Prize money...RM40. For the next 2 consecutive games, I've to play hc 19...when is it a problem?
