  1. Thank you to everyone value info on golfing distance and focus. Really appreciate everyone comments as it make me realised that one own strength is very important. Guess i am spend more time on the range with my Pro to focus on those points mention here !!! Thanks guys !
  2. In where i stay, it summer the whole year round. For the past 2 years or so, everyone from teens to old boys swear to the benefits of a Compression suit to protect strong UVA and to keep the body cool and a source of recovery for the body. We would wear this compression suit 1st than our colorful polo tshirts over. Here the link http://www.skinsusa.com/
  3. I am a short hitter, 170yards with driver, need 2 or 3 iron shots to reach green, 3 putted.... So is it natural for everyone to go for distance in their drive and approach irons or just have to rely and focus on their shorts games to score well ? Is it very disadvantage or even a curse if one couldn't hit far ? HELP ?????
  4. During a recent golf range practise, i had a chance to try some of the ladies pink and blue irons and woods sets. To my surprised it very easy to hit and the distance i gain is not bad... So does the rules allow men to used ladies sets to play social and medals tournament ??? Will i be a laughing stock ?
  5. Had a game with Old Boys last game at Pulai Spring, Johore Bahru...... Player A hit into the pond in a long par 3 180m. The group than proceed forward, Player A didn't see the drop zone and played a extra ball with 1 stroke penalty near the spot the ball went into the pond. As we reach the green, we discover the drop zone !! Can A played from the second shots by the pond or must he play from the drop zone !!!!???? We are just playing a social game
  6. Good stuff ! In my club got a property agents who loves to collect Scotty, limited edition types. He show me his latest collection, Scotty buttonback...cost $1000.....i don't even dare to touch it !
  7. Wow that far from US soil....could you posts some photos for everyone to see. Must a very interesting to play golf in Tanzania !
  8. In where i stay and played golf, average temperature can go up to 36 Deg C. So each game as we mount our golf bag onto the back of the buggy and each hole after using the driver, woods or hybrid woods...i always remove the cover, hit it and replace the cover. A habit since my golfing days. My logic is that as the driver and woods are filled with air as its hollow and if we leave them in the back of the buggy , the hot sun will heat up the driver head, the head may expand due to the heat thus when it used, it may lose distance in the process...... Make sense ????
  9. Will do a field report after the game, now trying to get a local guide to bring us for some real wild games food like wild boar, fruit bats etc...yum yum...

  11. The Old boys, by buggies....we hit the ground by foot...
  12. Yesterday had a lovely evening walking 9 holes at Singapore Island Country Club, Sime course. Was chatting with my lady friend and a subject on biomechanics was the topic...... Her son had a few sessions with Ryan Lumsden, world renowned coach in Golf Swing Biomechanics in SICC somewhere in March. I was puzzled and ask what is a Biomecahnics ?..... * Biomechanics are a 3-D progamme on a Laptop that shows the dynamics, timing, co-ordination, injury risk factor and golf swing of a students. * sensors are stick n many parts body like the shoulders, chest, hips and head. The sensors th
  13. Whoa !!! $20 can play weekend golf in your place.....my place weekend top course like Sentosa or Singapore Island Country Club cost $200....ypu are so lucky !!!
  14. Read in some golf magazine or heard before that after you tee up a ball, whacked the ball with a Driver or Wood, the wooden or plastic tee should flip and fall backward as this reaction will confirm a long and straight hit. My $2, a packet, plastic tee always fly right and left, front or into limbo.....sometime so far, i have to walk or take a buggy to get it (that if i can find it ! ) Must i be concern about where my tee landed or just focus hitting the ball long and straight ? If my tee flew to front, left and right of the teebox, am i missing something important ? Need help here
