Work Party and 1st Golf Lesson

Oh Dear, what a night!! It started off so well and then went terribly wrong...and I was trying my best to stay sober for my 1st golf lesson on the saturday morning. Free bar on ANZ with the traders....and interesting conversation with people from all walks of life and religion. I ended up in a late bar with a young asian chap lookalike to Keanu Reeves - very nice and young discussing the attributes of a good race horse... what on earth do I know about horses.

Anyway my first golf lesson on saturday morning saw me almost puking on the scorched golf course which wasnt the best.. I hadn't anticipated how difficult it was going to be!! I was too busy concentrating on not being sick as woke up still wrecked from the 3 o clock finish 6 hours earlier.

Its all in the technique (oi-oi) and Ms.Ling is going to work very hard to make it work for her...If you've ever played hockey then you are instantly at a handicap as the instinct is to whack the ball with your body stength behind you...alas golf is absolutely nothing like this and requires
1) good balance which since my op last year dont have very well
2) strong hands dont really have these either
3) flexible arms and hips -have these... 1 out of 3 aint bad!!!

Its going to be a mircale to get a good handicap......buts it's addictive so looking forward to my next lesson on saturday morning..hopefully a clear head and without naseoua will see me right with the best golf swing in melbourne! And the golf tutor looks like Alf Fisher from Home and Away which in itself is almost worth going along for !
