Golfing around....

Last Sunday....with a complete golf set...i confidently walked into the driving range along with my fellow housemates and close friends..
i walked with pride,Machoness(which i assume everyone would deny that), smartly dress like a real golfer...

with a 70 pounds sterling Kappa shoes (that i didnt buy from jalan Kapar, Klang), my smart Original Tommy Hilfiger T-Shirt,(that i grabbed from Danau Kota Bundle),a corduroy short pants along with a pair of renoma socks(F.O.S) not to mention my San Francisco Coffee House cap(grabbed from my ex-employer)...what else? fuhhhh i dressed completely like a real golfer with handicaps...like a pro....

i walked slowly,majestically,with arrogant and cocky look on my face...followed behind me was Paklong,Erie,Acap, and Che Wan...we all got the same look on our face...from far, i think people would have thought us as a group of Gangster or Along came at the driving range to collect debt from Dato Dato at that place...

and we saw Adam...our mate...who was going to teach us golf correctly...
like usual, when meeting friends and when you are in a large group, you tend to create havoc and noices....the cemetery like, quiet driving range turned into a night market just in a few second...
Adam who regularly played this sport warned us to watch our etiquette at that place...that was when the night market turned into the cemetery once again...however...among us, we did have some chit chatting going on around us...but slowly....So my first lesson fromGolfing that day was....BE SERIOUS AND STAY FOCUS ON THE GAME...

and next, it was time for me to hit the ball...huh..How hard can hitting a ball be?Just hit the ball and it will fly to lalaland...

that was what my unconscious mind said...

and so, i focus on the ball, act like a pro...set my target,lift the iron and gooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

i swung like a mad and fast Tasmanian devil....and i looked up in the sky to see where the ball go....

i saw nothing....

magically when i looked down,

i saw that the ball was still on the ground.....
so i tried a few times and finally i hit the ball....but it went as far as 10 cm in front of me....it was embarrassing...luckily i came wit the other 4 first timers...and my embarrassment is reduced to 0 percent....

Adam who is on his way to become the next tiger woods, is a pro to be golfer...someday he will beat Tigerwoods and Vijay Singh and surely be defeated by me....hohhohohohohoh

Adam taught us the correct technique to hit the ball and some discipline in golf....And i realised that Golf is a game of discipline and full of etiquette, style and focus...Golf teaches us how to stay focus and how to handle pressure..it also taught me the meaning of patience...

When i was a kid, i remember listening to a speech given by a teacher who said...

"Golf adalah singkatan untuk Golongan Orang Lemah Fikiran...Aper yg susah sangat main golf setakat pukul bola pastu pergi kt bola...itupun bukan jalan tapi naik buggy, golf set pon ader kedi bawak"

and since then, my stigma on Golf was always negative...
and now...came to think back of those silly words came from a teacher...
i wonder now who 'golongan orang lemah fikiran' is?

Hockey is a sport for white men . Basketball is a sport for black men. Golf is a sport for white men dressed like black pimps.-Tiger Woods
