What A Recovery...

Readers...Do you believe in miracles? I do!  Believe it or not, on 27 March 2010...I won second place of 'C' division in the Monthly Medal at Royal Kedah Club...and richer by RM100...Wow! I would use the money to contra my monthly subscription.

The day's mode of play was 'Bogey Play'...whatever the meaning! Short gun start and my flight started at hole #5 - 'par' 4 index 1. As expected, I took the flight's photograph before tee-off  with my newly acquired toy, Nikon 'COOLPIX', to show off to you my prowes in golf and photography...He...he...he...

To be honest, I felt so dishearthened after I scored 6 at #7 (P3), 8 at #8 (P4) and 6 at #9 (P4). I really thought of quitting and going back home. But then...I paid RM12.60, inclusive 5% tax, for this 'exercise' and futhermore, I might win a hamper during the 'lucky draw'. So...continued playing. And...surprise...average 'bogey' for second 9 - 1 'par',  1 'double bogey' and the rest bogey = 1 under. Overall, I played -2 and while Cikgu 'Pada' 3rd place with the same score. I won on 'OCB'. The Champion of C division played -1. Not bad...eh!

Come to think about it, it's not that I cannot play, but the first 3 greens are simply 'horrible', they are under repair...simply cannot read the line. Normally, my putting...wow! Now I can see the ball 'jumping' when I putt.
Hole #1 - Par 4

Hole #2 - Par 5

Hole #3 - Par 4 

On Thursday, 25 March 2010, I participated in the 'Evergreen' and I was very confident of becoming the Champ this time since the previous game I came out 2nd place...OCB. So unlike me...total disaster!!

Dear Faizul,

Thank you. The greens are really bad. Kedah Club is planning an interclub match with Royal Pahang in May.
