Happy Lunar New Year

10 posts in this topic

Happy New Year everyone.

Make or amend some Golfing goals, give yourself another month to achieve them. ;-)

Mine are already in the 2014 goals thread, and I'm giving myself another month to complete them.

Yes!  Happy Lunar New Year to all.  My Godchildren are adopted from Korea, so we celebrate it every year.

Sweet gluttony just got back from meeting friends at a Korean BBQ to celebrate. Chock full of Hite and a good three days of hard time in the gym. I ate a ton of BBB and galbee.

You can eat lots of these ribs with Hite or Soju.

I ate at least 3 pounds of meat, myself. That's at least 300 swings per day for the next week!

I got year of the Rat! Born in 1960.  What a letdown.  My brothers got Dog and Ox.  They rubbed that in when we found out.

I am a horse also. I was told that when your year comes up again you need to lay low and take it easy that year. Like you I thought that if it is "your" year then you should have a good year, but I was told no, you need to lay low. Anyways I found that interesting.

Yeah either works but I love Hite, that and Soju is a little potent but it does make meat taste good. I drank two big bottles there and two more at home. As hangover prevention I ate my leftover bibimbap and a few more ribs. But got up late so workout was short. They had Cass and OB too. Sucky thing hard to find Korean beer anywhere but a restaurant here. In a perfect world there would be no consequence to eating as much ribs and potato salad as you want.

It is way more complicated than this. Some years it is good, some are bad. Sometimes you need to carry a charm some you don't . There is a thick (telephone book sized) book that describes all the things you need to do for every day of the year.

Getting married? Oh boy, that takes at least two or three experts to help. . .

Lawn ornament? You need to consult an expert and a Fung Shui consultant. . .

This is why Chinese developed the ability to study hard. The better you can interpret the book, the better your life. I want to mention that I don't actually believe in this, but am forced to follow some of the rules by certain members in my family. O:)

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
