My weekend...

I guess most of you have watched the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic in China. What a grand show...i did not watched it live but saw clips from the Internet. My house Astro is down...:(

Any way on Saturday played in a golf competition...Shell Invitation 2008. I played badly. Tee off was ok...was let down by iron shots and chipping. In my last competition my handicap was 21...this month it drop to 20. So yesterday i played 104 and after minus off my handicap...got 84 nett (bad score).

Today is my club's monthly medal. I played better today. Played 92, minus off handicap..got 72 nett..which is a par game for my handicap. And i got 2nd runner up. Got a trophy and a prize voucher worth RM100. Am planning to exchange it for Tiger Wood Nike cap...:)







May all of you have a great week ahead. Take care and God bless.

congrats! hey, you are pretty good in golf ya, with trophies to prove :-) waiting to see what you'll do with the voucher.. hehe

Rita Ho said...

Congratulations, Nightwing! To me, participation in any competition is a win by itself so your 3rd placing is an achievement!!

I felt so ignorant reading this post of yours as I have zero knowledge of golfing terms. Blush. Someone was chatting with me excitedly about the recent competition where Ben Leong edged out a Thai golfer. I had to google to find out what it was all about!

Are you following the Malaysian shuttlers in Beijing? All except two are still in. :)

Nightwing said...

Hi Sting,

Thank you for the kind words. And thanks for dropping by. Will continue to improve my game.

Ya...will post pictures of what i did with the voucher..:)

Take care now..cheers.

Nightwing said...

Hi Rita,

How are you? Thank you for dropping by and the encouraging words.

Yes...Ben Leong is doing well at the moment. Winning 3 competitions in a roll is not easy (unless the golfer is Tiger Woods).

Ya..followed the news on Malaysia Badminton team....Hope they will continue to do well.

Hey Nightwing

Congratulations. It is the sportsmanship that counts ... RM100 voucher isn't bad either. :)

Do you have a picture of you in one of those famous poses - the swing? I heard one can tell how good a swing one has when captured in a photo. Is that true?

Nightwing said...

Hi JT,

Thank you for dropping by and the encouraging words.

hehe...i do not have pictures with the swing.

Ya..video and pictures taken will help the player to improve on the posture and the swing.
