Firstly, may I wish everyone a Happy and prosperous New Year. I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas with family and friends and I hope that the overindulgence was worth it! Here’s to a great golfing year with heaps of laughs and new friendships made…

I landed in KL a little under 5 weeks ago, and it feels like I got here yesterday! It has been unreal so far and I have loved every minute of it. I’m sure there are many more great times to come.

My first outing to “The Mines” Resort and Golf Course

Al Guthrie (owner of The Old Clubhouse – City Golf’s soon to be “on location” pro shop) managed to pry me away from City Golf for a couple of hours this morning to play my first round of the year at The Mines; a course that I have wanted to play for years. It was spectacular!! We were greeted with pristine fairways and greens of perfection, and everything that I had been told about the golf course lived up to my expectations.

Perfect weather with not a breath of wind allowed Al and I to make the turn at 4UP against our opponents. I managed to sneak in a couple of birdies to nudge our noses ahead. One of the birdies was on the 9th, with a delicate flop shot over a bunker that needed to land softly on the downhill slope. It kept trickling, and found the bottom of the cup. I hate blowing my own trumpet, but this was one of the finer shots I’ve played in a while and will be happy to teach you how to play it sometime! The back nine brought with it a bit of a fight back from the opposition, but some steady golf from Al and I held the opposition off for a reasonably comfortable win. Thanks to John and Julian for the round (and the lunch!!)

If you have been away, welcome back. If you have been away, and your golf was poorly while you were there, WELCOME BACK!!!┬áPlease be so kind as to shoot into City Golf to have a chat about your swing. I guarantee that I can fix whatever it is that may be bothering you. We have a new “lesson area” with a large screen television specifically for swing analysis viewing. I look forward to helping you get all that you want out of your game by working with your strengths and eliminating your weaknesses.
