First lesson :)


Definitely not the next Annika Sorenstam!!

Had my first golf lesson today...Awk..my shoulders n back are aching man..

Had always wanted to learn how to golf.. Had ever tried a li' 'swinging' the clubs at a driving range at Ho Chi Minh few years back but I was only with a friend then and he was a horrendous teacher. I ended up with blisters on my hands and was sore for a while..This time round, am determined to do it right by learning from a pro..

It went pretty well I must say, though my grip of the golf club is a li' suspect I think..Am so not used to having my left hand be the one guiding the club instead of my right arm..and I guess since I'm more of a racket sport person so the tendency is for me is to try to hit the ball with the right hand exerting strength..which is wrong..The furthest I could hit the ball was abt 50m..whereas the guys..hubby and his friend Roby performed much better..hitting at least 100m. Well, am lookin forward to next week's lesson :)

Oh yeah, there were this two ladies at the driving range and one of them was like dressed in a pink toga top and capri pants and slip-ons with heels and still managed to hit the ball decently.. Hmm, wonder whether she was there to practice or....... *coff*.

Was initially planning to to attend the sg_ljers GMU at China Square but coz I was feeling so sticky n dirty, decided against it..but chose to watch Finding Nemo instead. Fantastic movie..the voice casting was perfect..in particularly Ellen DeGeneres as Dory..she's a hoot! .. Both kids and parents would love the movie, the latter especially, can definitely identify with the theme of the show!

When the movie credits were scrolling, hubby said in a loud voice.."Let's have sushi!!! *sighh*



Could tell that I was doing it wrong when I look at the pix hubby took while I was practising my swing..My feet are supposed to be closed together and slightly bent! Yeah..hubby's definitely much better than me at this..

I was actually really tired when hubby took this pic of me..It was after I'd hit all the golf balls (@60 of them) and I was like resting my weight on the golf club.! Heh yeah..vain eh!

_____________________

MIL said Aidan hardly slept when we were out..Probably at most abt 1/2 hr or so..in the afternoon and abt 1 hr in the evening..Darn, I think he's too used to be nursed to sleep in the afternoon..usually, that will knock him out for at least 2 hrs plus...Anyway...have to be prepared that Aidan's gonna sleep less in the day soon so I'd better think of more innovative ways to keep him occupied :D..


The li' bugger lyin in his new playpen :D...

The first few times were tough..kept on thinkin of him..how he was doing and whether he was terrorizing my in-laws..but it got better as time passed. But can't help thinkin of him especially when we see other pple's babies.

woh the mag cover! I can see the golf-star (is there such a word?) potential. heheh

Hmmm..can see 'golf-star' potential based on pix..fwah! Like that dunnit to practice liao..just pose for pix in golf attire enuff already :D

really nice pic (the "posed" one). i'm thinking of starting in golf... er... sooner or later. dunno whether i'll like it or not, but i enjoy watching.

did you buy your driving club or did you rent from the driving range? how much are your lessons?
angeliatay
Jun. 22nd, 2003 06:44 am (UTC)
Re:
The lesson includes the use of the club but if I intend to go practice, I can rent it for $3 each time. But I'll probably go kapow my sis's golf clubs which is currently lying unused at my dad's place.
My lessons cost abt $320 for a small group of 3 persons only. It comprise of 10 sessions.
If u are really interested, get a group of pals and ask them to join u..at least if u guys become interested, u can go practice at the drivin range with them or go golfing at Malaysia :)

Heh, not bad! I really see the potential of the mag!

Where are you learning at? I almost took lessons from my friend's coach, but was too lazy. Hehe. And he charges $300 for four 1.5 hour lessons!

Jun. 22nd, 2003 03:09 pm (UTC)
Am learning it at the Superbowl Golf & Country Club (Marina South)..Woah, $300 per 4 1/5 hrs is kinda expensive but I guess it meant that he's teaching u exclusively.
I'm paying $320 for 10hr lesson but with 3 persons including me in the class, which is reasonable I felt.
I'm actually still aching from the Sat session..[shows how unfit I am]

heh..why is it that everyone's too lazy to try or practice. Did u enjoy the game? I guess u need discipline to continue with it and plus that it's rather expensive~

nice pics!! nice golfwear too! :P

I picked up golf under the influence of my ex...in aim to cultivate some kind of common interested. Now it's just me, and I'm quite hooked :P

It's a little difficult to find gals kakis to play golf with as most give up after awhile...and guys dun wanna play with gals. Imagine they hit 100m, you hit 50m...it's gonna be a looong day for them :)

I personally took 6 lessons, and now i'm just practising at the range....still no confidence go out into the greens yet....keep it up, mebbe we can form some kind of group next time? :))

Okie..this is kinda embarrassing to admit but I was wearing the only polo tee from my wardrobe that fitted and the bermudas belonged to my hubby *sigh*..

Hey cool! Got kaki liao!!
This beginners class has 10 lessons in all and I'll probably take the advanced class which is another 10 lessons..Wanna take that class with me? If so,will let u know when I reach that stage..:)

Hey Angie, I can't agree more than all the comments here that you look great in the pix and also the mag cover :)

But golf is really not my kind of game and i don't understand why people like to play golf, hit one ball then walk so far to continue the game. NOTE: NO offence to all the golfers, JMHO only. A few of my ex-colleagues play golf for the sake of networking.

Hey Wendy..gee, *blush*.but really, I guess I'm just photogenic..probably a trait that Aidan took after me :D...

Heh..have u played golf before yourself? I havent been on the greens so I dunno how the actual playing of the game feels like but I think it's more of an analytical game since u gotta estimate stuff like distance/weight/wind factor in every shot u take..I think it can be pretty challenging coz u aren't actually competiting agst someone in a game but against urself. Well, the walking would be good for someone like me who's tryin to lose weight too :D..

Yeah, playin golf is a good way to network I guess..but not in my case. Currently, only pple who would 'network' with me are mothers hehehe
