Since relocating to Singapore I’ve been invited to play golf a few times.
Whilst I’d like to go and play, each time I’ve declined the invitations with a logical and sensible little story:
“I haven’t played for over 3 years. I’m not very good. I need to go to the golf range to practice and get back into it before I step onto a golf course.”
But the thing is, in all that time, I’ve never actually got around to visiting a golf range!
Fast forward to last Friday afternoon when one of my colleagues said “Sital, do you fancy going to over to Batam on Sunday to play some golf?” (Batam is an Indonesian island that’s a 45 minute ferry ride across the water from Singapore).
Without thinking too much about it, I spontaneously said, “Yes, sure, let’s do it!”
So without golf clubs and without any practice I headed off to play golf with an attitude of just being average and having lots of goes.
