Hey, I No Sandbag - It Just Felt "Good"!

November 21st, 2008
By

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of golfing... for the first time in almost a year.

I don't know about most people but I hate going to a course without "warming up"... especially if I'm actually paying to play - well, that actually goes for any sport.

My friend, Vice-principal Sam (promoted a few years ago but I only heard about it now - Congratulations Sam!), puts on a "mini-tournament" for friends every year. I've heard about it but never been invited :cry: so when I got an email, text and call last month... I figgah'd he must have been desparate and needed to fill slots.  :lol:

Really, he's a good friend we're part of the same crowd... sort of. Our Moanalua hui is quite large and within that hui, we get our own "groups" and we pah-tay together once in a great while but I haven't seen him along with a few other friends in choke long time.

So I save the date and tell Da Wife I "got plans" for that day and that's that! .......Ok, so I asked and she said it was ok.  :oops:

Our tee time wasn't till 12:15pm but we had to meet at Ewa Beach Golf Course (New Ewa) at 11:15am. So that meant I had enough time to hit a few balls at the range next door to warm up.

Let me tell you. If my warm-ups were any indication of how I'd be playing, I would have gone home after the first few balls hit. It was not looking good and the weather wasn't helping either - very humid and no wind (it also rained on us on the final three holes of the game).  :mad:

Even my friend was shaking his head.

After we meet and greet everyone, we're off to the first tee.

I've only golfed here once before and if you look closely on the left of the picture you'll notice white rocks just past the tee box on the FIRST hole.

"DO NOT HIT THE ROCKS! DO NOT HIT INTO THE HEIAU..... again!"

Yup. My one and only vivid memory of this course was of me teeing off years ago and B-lining my drive into the second heiau further down.

Wat a great thought (feeling) to have while getting ready to hit da ball yeah?

Wassap Wit Dat!

Fortunatly, I hit the ball decently straight and so began my record breaking round - shot a 95! (sorry for those who don't know golf but golf lingo is about to bust out)

You can tell who took which pictures. :lol: Can you guess which one is me?  :razz:

I was tripping out that I was hitting par on most of the holes but I was jumping up and down like I won the Super Bowl when I got my first birdie! I two-putted the majority of the holes and I even one putted a breaking 20 footer! Even more of a bonus was that I acutally won a greenie! Truth be told, I don't even hit anywhere near the green on a par 3 (normally TRIPLE bogey par 3's - psychological thing) and to my surprise - and my friends as well - I stuck it!

I was even more surprised I lost only ONE ball! How amazing was that? And I lost it on the the 17th... but I did bachi myself cause right after I was "amazed", it went bye-bye. FYI - I brought 12 new balls with me to the course plus I had about two dozen "backup" ones as well. :shock: Did I mention dat my shoe broke at da same time?! :mad:

So of course at dinner later, I was getting the "sand bagger" ragging after I shot a 5-under with my handicap and won for best score.

I was talking to Jay Higa of Fore-Play yesterday, our HA golf blogger, and while excited for my "great" game (he normally shoots waaaay bettah) he said da true test is to go out again and see if I can duplicate it.

I told him,

"Wat Brah! You think I crazy! I just shot da best game of my short golf career.... I'm retiring!"

At least till next year.  :wink:

Happy Feel Good Friday everyone!.... yeah, you Lurkahs included.  :grin:

See you at da pah-tah tonight for those who coming and those who not? Maybe next time.... :mrgreen:

 

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY JOKE OF DA DAY

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole. The ball hit one of the men.

He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.

The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize.

'Please allow me to help. I'm a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me, she told him.

'Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few minutes,' the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his groin.

At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside. She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, 'How does that feel'?

He replied: It feels great, but I think my thumb's still broken.

Mahalos to Leah (? - he nevah even introduce me to her... WWD!) and Sam for putting up a great get together! The golf, food and prizes and friends were awesome! I know how hard it was hard to organize everything and a big MAHALOS goes out to you both for thinking of friends.

  5. GA Bows:

    Okay, so I was actually 3rd.

    Glad you had a good time on the course. I love the game of golf and I even attemp to play it when time permits. My game is so bad that I don't even bother to keep a score card.

    Hope you and everyone else enjoy tonight, pls take some pics and have a drink or two for me =)

  9. Scott:

    A WWD! golf post!!! I never thought I'd see the day. That course is very nice. It's the first one I played when I moved here. Good job, BL. And a birdie? Sweet. Golf is tricky, it's all about muscle memory. You can pick up after a year and get right back into it. I'm still waiting for a golf outing with the bloggers. Snow? Jay? Let's discuss at the 19th hole tonight. 95 is good, too. My buddy who considers himself a good golfer shot 93 last week. I beat him by 16. It was great. See you tonight, if my wife still allows me to go. She's asked, are there going to be any girls there?


  10. munch:

    :cry: how come my #2 comment is under moderation? i neva say bad word....boo.


  11. Kelli:

    Aigoo, I don't know anything about golf. Even my 5-year-old cousin probably knows more than I do. But I can tell you that when I went mini golfing a while back I hit the ball into the little pond thingy. I swear I knocked out a fish and my friends were trying to convince me that it was probably already floating in there before. I was a bit traumatized and swore never to go mini golfing again.

  13. islandgirl in nc:

    I learned to play golf a little when I was living in Vegas. I couldn't believe how much I loved playing even though I stunk bad. But it was relaxing...almost zen-like. It was one of those sports where you just couldn't have anything else on your mind while you were playing. I also learned quickly that you may be good one day but the next day you could have the worst game ever. I gave up the sport and have not played in years.

    Have a fun parthay tonight... I totally wish I could be there! :D Instead, I am shivering in day temps of 40 degrees!


  14. GA Bows:

    BL... I even duck for cover when I hit the ball.

    islandgirl in NC - we're sharing the same weather!


  15. N'sMommy:

    I don't golf but I did hit balls at the driving range once. Yikes...if that is any indication of how I would do at golfing I need to stay far away from the course (for the health and safety of any living thing).

    I, however, can empathize with the "quit while you are ahead" thing. I take that straight to Vegas...if I win big I stop right there and head straight to the mall to spend...I don't "push my luck" and try to make it into something bigger...I don't want to end up a loser!

    To all those going to the pah-tay tonight, have fun! Wish I could be there...


  16. roach:

    BL,
    I tried golfing for a while, I gave up when it became more frustrating than work.

    FGF joke:

    A man walks into a bar and tells the bartender he just had a fight with his wife.

    “Too bad,” says the bartender. “How’d it end?”

    “Well,” replies the guy, “when it was over, the old lady came to me on her hands and knees.”

    “What’d she say?” asks the bartender.

    “She said, come out from under that bed, you little chicken $h!t."

    Have a nice weekend everybody !


  17. 808Dad:

    I have mix feeling about GOLF. My Dad forced me and my brothers to golf when we were teenagers for over 7 YEARS!! WWD. As our friends would go to the beach or play ball we were at the Ala Wai golf course almost every day after school. Back then you could buy a yearly student pass for $5 and golf any weekday excluding holidays. Dad said it would be a good character building experience and we would use our golfing skills in the business world. Yes it was good bonding experience but I hated golf for all those years.

    Fast forward 35 years. We all still golf and are decent golfers, if fact one of my brothers is a scratch player. My Dad who’s in his eighties still golf’s and walks the course twice a week. Every Fathers Day we get together to golf then out to lunch. Was all those teenage years of suffering worth it, I still can’t answer that.

  18. 2B:

    Pic 1 is you cuz it looks like your softball swing. Oh wait the pitcher counldn't throw strikes this week and we all walked 5 times.

    Ever notice that the more time you take off between rounds, the better you shoot?

    Have fun tonight. Gotta take care of the kids, so I gotta pass this time.


  19. Coconut Willy:

    You da guy wit da black shirt. 1st pictcha?

    I heard New Ewa is really nice. Looks so green. Planny trees but.


  20. Kimekomi:

    BL,
    Please share you golf secrets :) to my other half. He golfs every week and I think he is consistent but still he wants a single handicap. WWD? Is not golf suppose to be a relaxing game? A walk in the park? I think when you get hung up on performance, you lose sight of having fun. I retired loooong time ago. Back then I was having fun and the score mattered to me but what the heck some days good and others no good. The fun is gone when you getting all frustrated cause not scoring well and your partners are ahead. Why sweat it cause when you get the 19th hole, the scores all even!!! ;0


  21. homey:

    Golf balls don't move. :lol:

    Just like bowling pins...

    ...and dart boards...

    ...and billiard balls...

    ...yet so frustrating...

    ...main thing get beer.


  22. Ynaku:

    Hey CW, I agree with you dat da 1st picha is BL Get plenty White hair. He wearing one visor like da time he wen go SUPing with NKHEA and get plenty Balls, (golf balls in his side pocket)

    Chee Hoo BL. Surprise da gang yeah? Good for you. I think your friend that was watching you shag some balls felt he get chance beat you.

    As for da joke, I bet da guy forgot about his broken thumb.:lol:

    Have fun tonight gang. I still waiting for that dang Super Ferry at Hilo Harbor. Hurry up, rain coming (again) :D


  23. bamboohouse808:

    BL - Brah, you are a sandbagger. There is no way I could shoot 95 after not playing for a year!! I would need for buy one bucket range balls and use that for play because I going lose them all anyway. I think you da guy in da 1st pic.


  24. Braddah Lance:

  27. bamboohouse808:

    I agree wit B. I think the brain get in the way plenny times. Get so much stuff you gotta focus on when you golf. Like you say BL, just "grip it and rip it". Jeff Bagwell style!! :razz:


  28. bamboohouse808:

    One more.......

    One of the most shame thing get is when you go driving range and get these petite middle-aged Korean ladies cranking the ball farther than you. :oops:

    That's when I bust out the wedge and practice hitting the 100 yard flag instead.....

    Now THAT is one major Aigoo!!


  29. snow:

    hey, glad you got to go out golfing again!! sometimes i go to the driving range before and - holy moly - i think i'm going to be golfing until the cows come home!! but, it's fun, yeah? so... no retire, just yet! (but congrats on the record round! awesome!)

    scott - i don't know if you'd want to go golfing with me (as part of the group, i mean!! ha ha!), i'm pretty cr*ppy! i enjoy the game though... but i think i might get performance anxiety! ha ha... wait, is that a guy's term? (sorry, wrong blog!) if your wife let's you come to the party (you could bring her, too!), maybe you can talk to the other guys and my husband about a golf outing.

    see you at the party tonight kwonics, lanceformers and lurkahs! happy feel good friday!!


  30. Ocean Lover:

    Mahalo BL! Just back from the "pahtay" and smiling. Everyone in attendance were "warm'. You, Rodney, and Queenie have developed a nice little community.

    OL


  31. anklebiters:

    BL:

    Since you said you forgot to read O&E, here's a cut and paste of my trip to HNL :lol:

    Ppl must think Hawaii has strange folks…where did WoF get their contestants from? Did you read about the girl from Waipahu hitting the $2.4 mil jackpot at the Cali in Vegas on the WoF slots?

    Had the sushi platter from 99 Market tonight…was ok…the chef needs another lesson in using the knife to cut the rolls….the height on the rolls were “hemajang’,,,high, low, not level…had the haupia, sweet potato pie from Ana’s…I don’t care for either haupia or sweet potato…but this was YUMMY!! I wish I could take one home with me.

    Talked to soulmate tonight….she’s in Raleigh, NC for business….she had to sit next to a guy who obviously was a tight fit in the middle seat, she had the aisle seat. Not a comfortable 5 hour plane ride for her. She flew USair which is a mistake already…they DO NOT feed you anything unless you pay. I had told her to fly 1st… :-)

    And Chatty Smith…COLD and a little snow in NH…she wishes she was here again where it’s WARM….she’d like to meet the people I’ve BEEn buzzing around with and thinks it’s really great to finally meet the bloggers.

    Isn’t this UH volley ball night?

    Now my plane ride to HNL. It started off badly and I knew then it wasn’t going to get any better. There was one person in front of me in the 1st class checkin line….there was a mass of humanity in the regular checkin line. Everyone in PHX must have been going to HNL…at 06:30. The guy in front of me started to get fidgety after 5 miuntes…there were like 3 checkin people at the counter…one passenger was having problems with her checkin, taking up everyone’s time. About 10 minutes of waiting, he started telling me, “we pay 1st class for this???” Me, I didn’t care, the planes was not taking off for another hour and a half. The funny thing is, all he had was two small carry ons. They tagged it and he was done.

    While waiting in line I saw a co-worker from another dept with her husband on their way to Mauai in the same flight….hope to meet up with them when they fly over to HNL.

    The plane was packed, lots of little kids…one was screaming in the waiting area and I heard a passenger saying to his companion, “I hope they aren’t on our flight”….guess again Sherlock, he was :-) . As soon as you are seated, even thou the rest of the passengers are filing through to their seats they ask you if you want champagne or juice…I choose guava juice..too early for the bubbly stuff….with trail mix for pupus. Their brunch menu is on your seat with pillows and blankets. On the menu:

    Warm Breakfast Pastry and Fresh Fruit Plate

    Sliced ham with Scrambled Eggs and Red Pepper Sauce

    Spinach and Mushroom Quiche with Hollandaise Sauce and Chicken Apple Sausage

    It was really good….their food usually is. They handed us a hot towel to wipe our hands with and was served brunch way when the rest of the plane started beverage service. We were handed our video player for the movies/music and headset, more beverage, and were left to our own. I started watching The Dork Knight :-), about an hour into it, my stomache started to rumble…oh oh…this is not good. Never in my years of flying have I had stomache pains…I only thing I was glad for was that the toilet is very clean in 1st class since you don’t have a gazillion passengers using it, spraying all over the place in twin streams :lol: Chores done and everything was A-OK from then….wonder what it was that I ate?

    Went back to watching music videos on my Blackberry as I had already seen TDK and the other movie choices didn’t interest me…they had something about Poles but I think they were talking about the people :lol: Beverage time again…this time I choose a White Russian, or moose milk (Kahlua and milk). I took a short nap…it’s nice to be able to recline the seats far back and had a foot rest for your feet. Woke up and beverage time…HEINIE for me….and a big chocolate chip cookie. Back to watching music videos. Beverage time….guava juice.

    They started to show the in-flight movie for the rest of the plane….Mama Mia…didn’t interest me for me to watch. The guy next to me wasn’t too talkative so we hardly said much to each other. Several trips ago the lady sitting next to me reminded me of Chatty Smith…boy could she keep a convo going :lol: I read the magazine I had with me, read USAToday paper, and went back to listening to music. Beverage time….ginger ale.

    The flight attendants did just what barely needed to be done and disappeared behind their curtains until someone lite up the ‘need assistance’ light. I got the feeling they just wanted to land it HNL as quickly as possible….maybe I was the only one feeling this way :?: The rest of the cabin were couples planning to vacation in HNL and didn’t care? But it was not the kind of service that I had previously experienced up front….kinda reminds me of what the person said at the checkin line in the morning. I’ve often felt that the service flying back to PHX was not always on par with the one flying into HNL. They may never service those passengers again so the who-cares attitude :?: Enough about the poor service…..

    When we finally reached the gate…there was a guy from the back who came running up the aisle, almost knocking down the passenger a row behind me, trying to be first off the plane. The entire plane was standing ready to disembark but they were having difficulties with the jetway…it wouldn’t move. After about 10 minutes, they had all of us sit so we could move to another gate. As we were backing up, they fixed the jetway,so they had to move forward and park again. Again this guy came running up from behind, the passenger behind me stepped out in the aisle and blocked him….saw a bunch of smiles on the faces of the other passengers. The flight attendants should have made sure we were all ready to prevent a mad stampede to the front. It personally didn’t bother me…power to him…but there are 1st class passengers who do not take kindly to someone taking free advantage of something they paid for.

    By the time I reached baggage claim, my luggage was on the carousel…I picked it up and headed to the rental car shuttle. When I reached the counter, there was a row of people, like servants, behind the counter waiting for me, the only one off the shuttle. They said a VIP was coming..I assume they were talking about me :lol: . This is a new one on car rentals and I have rented many a cars…agent took me out front where the cars were parked and said “pick one, anyone, any color…$20/day”. I choose a Chrysler 300, brand new..nice car…drives like a boat compared to my vette thou. Lots of room for my parents to ride in and low enough to the ground so they can climb in and out without a ladder.

    So, this was Part One of my tale to attend the Triad party. Part Two after the pah-tay tomnorrow……

  44. anklebiters:

    I'll post this to each of the Triad blogs in case it slips by anyone...

    I'd like to thank all three of the blog leaders, BL, UR, and QB for putting together the event last night. It was greatly appreciated that it was held during the time I was here. If this continues on to be a regular event, I will certainly schedule my vacation to coincide with it as I would not want to miss it (Ynaku - next time have NKHEA SUP you over, it won't be a boring trip, I promise) . There were comments before hand about what to expect at the party...I had no doubt it would be a success as I've been to several of these types of IRL meetings (car people). The one thing that makes it a success is if you all share the same passion for similar topics in blog-life, the IRL meeting will simply be a continuation of the net version. I don't know if there were any IRL 'surprises'...BF is probably the only one, other than HSiB, that I could pick out of a police lineup with any accuracy. The musketeers were there, minus munch. Everyone there IRL was just an extension of their blog self, funny personalities abound all evening long. I'll bet that we could have a real doozy of a golf tournament - who cares what we scored - We'd have FUN, we could even bring a portable karaoke player strapped to the golf cart. The loser of a hole has to sing.

    Aunty Paula, your score please?
    AP: I guess I'll have to sing again (grinning)

    I stepped on the scale today and "oh oh", gained like 4 pounds already. I've got a tough choice to make, eat less favorite food or return home looking like the Michelin blimp !!
