Last year when I started playing golf my handicap was thirty-four.
At that time I used to play alone with J’s golf set and that was quite heavy for me.I won many tournaments with that golf set that made me a champion. Day by day I became a regular golfer. Everyone started recognizing me in the golf circle. One fine morning I was playing golf alone and someone met me and introduced himself as a golf convener. The very next day when I was about to tee-off the golf convener asked me to play with him along with his golf buddies. They were quite old harmless must be in their eighties.
I enjoyed playing with them, day by day we became friends. We started playing golf together. I enjoyed the company of senior citizens of Lahore. They were four old golfers who became my golf buddies. I was the youngest golfer among them. One of them liked to share jokes with everyone which was a good quality. I still like his jokes. The other old golfer was a doctor. He used to share jokes as well but he was a little bit reserved. I enjoyed their company a lot laughed a lot with them. That was the lighter side of golf. One of them was an accountant who never liked jokes and was a bit edgy towards life. The last as I have mentioned earlier was the one who introduced me in his group was also fond of good English jokes. We used to play five ball everyday but after some time five ball got divided into two balls and one ball. I started playing alone again and sometimes with the professional golfers as I wanted to improve my game. Participated in all tournamnets sometimes I won and sometimes it was my bad-luck. My target was handicap twenty four that I achieved in four months and now it been seven months and my handicap is eighteen point five now: D
My new target is handicap twelve and I am practicing a lot these days on my short-falls. In the meanwhile I made few friends while playing golf. Now I have golf buddies in every golf club of Lahore. Once a week I play with my old buddies and I do enjoy Shah g’s jokes, coffee, tea and company. For motivation I invite my friends to play golf with me for example I have one Korean friend who is also a good golfer. Secondly I try to participate in all matches organized by LLGC, Lahore Ladies Golf Circuit where I get the chance to play on different golf courses of Lahore.
LLGC provides the opportunity to play with some good golfers of Lahore. Plus a lot of experience that includes patience, practice and you get to know your short falls. I remember we had a match on New Year’s morning at Lake City Lahore. I had the chance to play in the windy and cold weather. It was fun and I enjoyed brunch specially coffee with hot puri’s. It is also amazing we have one senior old golfer in LLGC. LLGC arrange matches twice a month. Winners get new golf balls. It is always amazing to get to know golfers and their golf experiences. Now I play with my full new ladies golf set I have Callaway’s irons and Taylor made’s driver, wood, rescue and putter. Thanks to my full loaded husband.
Thank you Ami, Abu for giving my Chenab club and Lyallpur golf clubs bills when I was a kid.
Late Grandpa&ma thankyou for spoiling still miss them
If someone wants to play good golf one has to be positive. I try to enjoy the company of gossip monger’s, critics, losers, haters, enemies, well wishers, admirers, and strangers! Because I want to play golf and I love golf.
Caution: Too much golf can create problems in your personal life: p
