I Gotta Get Me One of These!

I played my first golf game today after the longest layoff in my golfing history. I shot a horrendous 53 on the front at Tasik Puteri’s 3rd nine and 47 on the easier 1st nine.

I gave up on my HiBore driver halfway as I could only manage to hook the ball into OB all the time. The last six holes, I played 2 par, 1 double and 3 bogeys to somehow save my game, and within those, I had at least 2 good pars I missed due to 3 putts. Because the last six holes I dumped my stupid Cleveland driver and took up my friend’s R11.

Now I’m not giving excuses. My swing still resembles an ape trying to hump a turtle. Sideways. But the R11 had two things:

1) Head weight. I finally know where the driver head is. I never knew where it was with my HiBore.

2) Forgiveness. I was having a bad swing day, but bad hits went even further than some of my friend’s good hits.

Any of you guys swing one of these?

I’m beginning to think that equipments do make a difference in bad golf.

After cracking around the bend on one of the holes that put me only 70 meters from the green, I just kinda looked at it and felt like Flinn Rider, the dude from the disney animation Tangled and how he felt about Rapunzel’s Frying Pan (sorry for the Disney reference, been readying up for baby by watching more cartoons…and hey, Disney rocks anyway)

Tangled was actually pretty darn funny.

More of Tiger means…?

It has been a hugely long time since I last updated this blog. Many have thought I had expired somewhere in the middle of a golf course and likely covered up in the thick trees, since there is where I spend most of my golf these days.

I seriously cannot get a grip of my swing, having sat out since, probably approaching two months. The dirt in my golf club has transformed into plants and sprouting flowers.

Instead, I have watched the world go by: First, Juventus, my beloved Bianconeri, win their 30th Scudetto (make no mistake, those 2 taken from us from Inter was robbery), and Allesandro Del Piero probably playing his last game this Sunday at the Coppa Italia; watching the ridiculous game between City and QPR…if I was a betting man, I’d be having a heart attack (could the match be possibly fixed??)

And then there’s Tiger.

I think we can safely say now that the era of Tiger Woods is officially kaput. It’s not to say that he won’t win again, he will, but he’ll win it like any other golfer out there. Gilagolf has always been about Tiger Woods all the way: not because he’s a great guy in golf, it’s because he’s the ONLY guy in golf. It’s going to be hard to root for anyone but him.

It’s depressing enough not to play golf, but to see the guy who inspired you and the rest of a generation to pick up this stupid game play like a hack: that’s doubly depressing. Tiger must be really cheered up by these facts:

1) He’s playing at the Greenbrier classic for the first time. Read it. GreenBrier. And this golf tournament will have more turnout this week than all of its 60 year history combined. I don’t know, it’s just a downer when all these years, Tiger’s been saying, “I simply am not going to waste my gold-minted minutes on loser tournaments like Frys and GreenBrier simply because they sound stupid. Or sound like food and drinks.”

2) His mistress got tapped. And knocked up. Rachel Uchitel is getting a baby girl. So much for rumors that she and Tiger will ride off into the sunset after Elin runs off with his billions.

3) Speaking of Elin, she just broke off with her boyfriend. I think because he once tapped Rachel Uchitel. I mean, what is she gonna do to get this B*tch out of her life??? Elin being so hot, I don’t think she’ll have a problem getting hitched again though. I mean, look at her! Go Elin, Daughter of the Vikings!

Really, More of Tiger doesn’t mean it’s good. The reason why Tiger was such a hot commodity was that he was a stuffy, fussy pr*ck who did what he wanted and was bigger than the PGA tour. Seeing him like this, as a more common PGA tour member really suck. Golf will never be the same again.

Well, at least Juventus didn’t fail me. FORZA JUVE!!
