GONG XI FA CAI!!!
I hope everyone had a nice bit of time off, and you are now ready to tackle the year with open arms!!
Our monthly outdoor game was held at Sungai Long on Friday 27th January. What a golf course!!! After much running around and fumbles with pairings for the game, we were off on what looked to be another cooker of a day in Malaysia. I personally loved the layout of this golf course as it allowed you to open your shoulders and give the ball a good swipe! The greens were lovely apart from being a touch slow, but rewarded good aggressive putting strokes.
There was some pretty decent scoring on the day, and it turns out that you needed to go pretty low to beat Karl Muir off his 16 handicap! He went around in 40 points to secure the win by a single point from my playing partner Iain Pearce. Had it not been for that little “10” on the par 5 sixth hole, Iain would have been in the driver’s seat.
1st Karl Muir 40 points 1 Dozen Titleist Pro V1
2nd Iain Pearce 39 points 2 Sleeves Titleist Pro V1
3rd Gary Cane 37 points 1 Sleeve Titleist Pro V1
Everyone else received a pat on the back and a couple of ice cold beverages. Thanks again to all who participated.
