Remember when you golf shoes still had metal spikes? Well, that’s how long it’s been since I last held a 7 iron! And just last night at the Top Flyt driving range in Quezon City, I did not just hold one – but hit a bucket of golf balls – with the chidding, pushing, cheering on of my Panget and my tee-boy Myke (naks…)
Even though its been years, I still remembered the grip, the stance and the swing – although not the correct stance, grip, back swing and etc., but at least somehow – I knew and remembered a little of it. Everyone will agree that I hate the feeling of being sweaty (ma-pawisan) I hate it so much that I purposely do not engage in sports (it’s as if I’m a fan of any sport – I just watch them on TV or on the court) but for golf (driving range and badminton) I was willing to sweat it out.
I remember vividly, during my first summer learning golf, I sustained a tennis elbow injury – that was during 1997 (I think) because the glof club I used was too heavy for me – thus – hitting a few balls became sort of a torture for me, but then again, I enjoyed it. The following summer, I sustained a sprained wrist – due to having the wrong grip! After a while, I was able to correct my grip thus – no more pain – but unfortunately – I never played ever again -until last night that is.
It’s funny to know that I have my own golf set (take note!! ako lang sa buong pamilya ko ang eron!) My mom bought me a golf set with a matching color golf bag – a pair of Footjoy golf shoes that matches the design of the golf bag, and a long sleeved turtle neck golf shirt that is the same design as the golf bag!! Everything was matching – para raw maganda. Fine – it looked cute, it still looks cute! I still am proud of it up to now.
Since my Panget and I got together, I’ve been telling his younger sister that I need the metal spikes of my golf shoes t be replaced – until now, it hasn’t been replaced! I keep forgetting to give my golf shoes to her! I have a feeling that it’s quite brittle already – but it still there! 🙂 (Damn, how much will I shell out for a pair of decent golf shoes?! Argh….) I just realized – this is an expensive sport! Dammit!! I need to get gloves for my left hand – as I sustained (grabe ba?!) a blister on my left thumb.. 🙁 huhuhu…
P.S. I’m still looking for my 7 iron! I can’t seem to find it! Help!! 🙂
