had a bad day on the golf course!!!!

well today the father-in-law took me to golf to be in his company's golf tournament. i was excited to go but wasnt to excited to play as i knew that i hadnt played in a long time. i was hoping to score under 100 but ended up at 111 and i have lots of excuses why i score that and not under 100.

here is a photo of the club house surround by trees.

this is the golf cart that my group was going to use.

a nice shot of the first hole. i was supprised by how wide this course was. most courses i have been to in japan are very narrow and have OBs on both sides on each hole.

this is a shot of the first par 3 of the course. i hit my shot to just in front on the green to the right. V

this is the par 4 no. 17 hole. this was a great hole for me. nice shot up the middle with my 3 iron and then a well timed 7 iron onto the green and then a 2 putt for par. had all the marks of a good golfer. just a petty the rest wasnt so great.

finally i did win something. i won the doracon (ドラコン) or the driving competition for one of the par 5 holes. it was a nice 1 wood off the tee but by no means my longest of the day.

Yamaha vs Coca Cola

last saturday ayako, the parents-in-law and i all went to watch the rugby at Yamaha stadium. it was a good night and there was a big crowd. the rugby on the other hand wasn't that great. the yamaha team were shit. they lost the game and looked like there were in a panic for the last 20mins because they were loosing.
the standard here isn't very high for a country with the most rugby players in the world and who thought they deserved the 2011 world cup.
anyhow, what would i know about rugby coming from a little country in the middle of no-where.

Cricket - Kytes v Giants

well what a game it was!

yesterday we played a must win game against one of the strongest teams in japan, the giants and lost.
once again we were left with a good team but not our strongest which is what we needed for this game.
we battered first and got a reasonable score but could have got a few more runs if the tail didnt go out so cheaply.
the fielding was great thoughout the game and only fell off once we new the game was gone.
the bowling was good for most of the innings but we were one bowler short or a bowler that could bounce the ball which i think is what could have won us the game and put us into the semi finals.
everyone put in 100% thoughout the day and everyone helped to clean up even though we lost.

we have one more game to go in the kcl league and maybe one more chance for a semi final.
