Thanks for the game ...

They say that in golf, you truly have a game for the ages. I agree.

For the first time in a few months, I walked on to a golf course and played a game. The combination of work commmitment, excitement of a newfound love, need for real rest, and lack of golfing partners all worked to restrict my playing opportunities lately.

So, when an old golf-kaki who's now based in Australia came to town yesterday and asked for a game, I knew it was too good to resist. Me, DP and EL playing together is great fun. Too bad DQ couldn't join.

This morning, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I dragged myself out of bed before sun's up so that I don't miss my tee off time. It'll be only the first time I'm going to Kajang Hills on my own, and I was kinda worried I would get my directions wrong, so I had myself there with plenty of time to spare.

***

The game itself is nothing to shout about - I played exactly like how I should be played - very out of practice. The long game isn't very long, which is generally fine. Because my short game bails me out a lot. But the short game never showed up today - chips and putts were really missing. I think if I putted a bit better, and chipped anything like I can, I'd lower my score by about 10 strokes easy.

The company was great, though. It's as if we're all still working in the same company, and have always been playing regularly. But that's not the case ... we only get to play together once a year if we're lucky.

I miss my old golf-kakis a lot.
I miss how we all look for each other's balls when someone visits the jungle.
I miss how we help fish balls out of the water.
I miss how we tease each other when we miss easy putts.
I miss how we would psycho each other at the tee box, and how we'll all have a good laugh when someone actually got affected.
I miss how we would normally drive over to Kajang for satay after our games. And end up with a belly of beer.

I miss you chums lah ...

Thanks for the game.

Sounds like the fun is golf is not just on the course, but off course as well huh? :) The after game beer seems like a must!

Once my dad came back from the golf course with a beer mug. He said that he must have been so tipsy that he left the club still holding the mug and drove home with it XD
