Most of us would think that golf is an old man's game. I know i did. When i was in form 3, dad wanted me to learn to play golf but at the time, i was in to badminton and i thought it was an old man's game plus i have no 'kaki' to play golf with. So after a few months at the driving range, i drop off the golf radar.

At the time, i did not know that golf is more than a game. For those who play the game, they can know a person's character by just playing one round of golf with them. Whether the guy will cheat, scream/cursed his head off after a bad shot, a hard worker (if the person can become good player in short span of time) and etc..

As i get older i then realise that when my dad wanted me to learn the game is because a lot of business man plays golf, some deals are even made on the golf course, get network at the golf clubs, golf can be played for a long time, over in the US recently one 100 over years old lady golfer hit a hole in one (hole in one means getting the ball into the hole in one stroke/swing.

Elsie Mclean

As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. And that's exactly what happened to a 102-year-old golfer in California.

Elsie Mclean finally reached her dream of hitting a hole in one Thursday. Mclean took to the green in Chico, setting a new world record for the oldest woman, or man, to hit a hole in one.

"I said, 'Oh, my Lord. It can't be true. It can't be true.' I was so excited. And the girls were absolutely overcome. And so was I," said Mclean.

Elsie has been golfing since her 20s, and has been featured in Golfers Digest.

She was invited to appear on the Jay Leno show in the past, but declined.


And now thanks to Tiger Woods, golf has a strong following from golfers and non-golfers. He had made golf cool. Only turning pro less then a decade he had being the world number 1 almost half of it and won most of the tournaments in the world, 12 majors and counting.
