Let’s face it! Everyone will agree that Tiger’s dominance is not over. Not for the next 5 to 10 years. But where is the next challenge going to from. Is anyone willing to come up the ranks to challenge him as the world no1. After all, Vijay is the only guy to wrestle it from him briefly (while he was injured). But let’s face it, the so-called fab four(outside of Tiger Woods) is not really giving him much of a fight are they? Who?? Fab Four? Just info for those out there who have just started reading anything about Golf about yesterday. It used to be….
Hasn’t any golfer out there that has for one reason or another not able to play for say three months to a year! Well, for you guys and gals out there who suffer from a winter break, this is the norm! For us golfers living in the South East Asian countries, we can play any day of the year. Well, almost everyday unless it rains…
It seems kinda funny to write about your average golfer who happens to be a golfing buddy of mine. But my posts have never suited the norm anyway. “A great golfer is grandmaster Choo” remarked a friend of mine. Mind you, he is a real beginner at golf and sharing a round with him for a seasoned golfer is not easy to digest. The frequent tops and fats, the one ball lost per hole can really affect your game. But does it affect the grand master? The answer is no. He happily goes along, trying his utmost best to locate the wayward shot. Pinpointing with extreme accuracy of the place where the ball landed. His remark, “It’s between the 4th tree on the right where the hazard marker is”. And true enough, you will see it there.
It has always been the norm for golfers to have a small wager for every round. But should we really go for it? Golfers know that a friendly bet even for lunch or dinner always spruce up the game a notch. But is the normal golfer always getting a fair deal?
There you have it! Hasn’t the signs been showing? For the past few Ryder Cup meetings, the European has been whipping the US teams. And finally, the change has come. The winner of the Open Championship is none other than Padraig Harrington. And who was involved in the play-off and posted the nearest challenge, Sergio Garcia. What am I on about? The fact that everyone thought, excuse me, 90% of the golfing population thought the Claret Jug would be in Tiger’s hands by now or Phil Mickelson. Why blame them, so did I!
The problem with these guys or gals on why they hate golf is simple. In one word “ignorance”. Has it ever occurred to you that you are the problem itself! Look, I have full testimonials that “golf” is a great game. Ask my fellow blogger friends like wingz or kenny. Yes, they started like you. It looks silly and stupid! And you need to be real old to play it, Right? Wrong! You should start as young as you can, ask Mr. Tiger Woods! These are maybe some of the other reasons why people hate golf. Let’s examine a few of them;
Once in a while, you get the feeling that not everything is life is about golf. But what you have to believe in is that golf does take a part in some decisions that you do in life. Olaf has a great golfing partner, Azni. He has been golfing for nearly 10 or more years. Has a great short game and can take on anyone on his day, barring the tour professionals. But it’s not only about him but how life takes a fine turn on one’s destiny. Who would have thought that this golfer would be selling CHICCKENSSSSS!
