In the Greens!

I play tennis. I am doing so for many years. It has been the only game in which I have been involved. Cricket has flown over my head like a sixer. Near the tennis courts, where I have been playing for the last few years, tucked away is a Golf Club. I have always been curious about Golf but never toyed with the idea of learning it. All of a sudden, I decided to give it a try and submitted an application to the Golf Club, (www.trivandrumgolfclub.com ). The Executive Committee has accepted my application, made me a member-elect, and today I started training under an able coach. The first day on the practice greens was not without its difficulties and minor struggles, but under proper guidance I hope to catch on to all nuances of the game and become a seasoned golfer in the days ahead. I am bound to learn the game within six months and play with the Captain who will assess as to how far I have picked up the essentials.
Well, I look forward to happy golfing days and will share with you my experiences as a budding golfer.

Yes we are fortunate to live among a lot of trees in Mumbai, though of course Goa is really the tree place since our home is in the forest. Golf is good, a bit snobby but good...

Golf is snooty but I think tennis is more so.

I prefer clay by the way a la Roland Garos even
though I learned on grass:)
