2010-04-24 Goooooooood Morning!
Day off today from tournament play which feels so weird! It's like the tennis tour. The only difference is that they need it after running around on court. We might need it to relax our brains a little:)
Hitting the gym now with Edfors and Pierre. I've got a feeling Colin will sneak down and work out under the radar to later bust our asses when we invite him to a competition. Colin just did 50 push-ups in a row yesterday in the locker room to get warm before going out in the way-to-fresh-air-at-6-in-the-morning. That was impressive. Good form too. He does everything in good form. Everything from writing down the numbers in the yardage book to sip on his 10th espresso of the day...
So, a little gym session then some golf practise to stay in golf mode for tomorrow. If the cut falls to -1, we are 12 players from our side of the draw that will make the cut. The weather can play a big role...
View over the water from the hotel.
Colin tried out those steps earlier. Brutal. 200 steps. Good idea for a sunday workout.
2010-04-23 36 holes today. Was very tired in the end. 3 or 4 club wind throughout the whole day and 70-72 were my scores. Felt descent in those conditions. Day of rest tomorrow becasue the rest of the field has to finish their second round and the tournament was shortened to a 54-holer.
One of my goals this year is to run 10 000 meters in under 40 minutes. I don't know where and why I came up with this figure but it felt motivating. Just had a look on the internet to find some videos of runners that would inspire me and give me some tutoring in how to achieve my goal.
BUT. Now I feel sick when watching these guys sprint (yeah, they do sprint) in on times around 27 minutes. I guess they have practised for a while:)
Bekele is looking strong in this video. Have a look at his last 200 meters. Insane...
2010-04-22 Fog! F"#!%€g fog! Always the fog! I have never looked more forward to playing in my life! Not true at all but pretty close to it. The course is so nice and fun to play and golf is a sweet klinging word in my head right now. More so than ever!
Anyway, we get to play 36 tomorrow maybe so it's all good! Have had a seriously tough time to fall asleep these two weeks in Asia so now I've got to get at least one good night of sleep before the mighty golf marathon day tomorrow!
2010-04-21 South Korea is awesome!!! Cool nature. Volcanoes and cool vegitation! The course, Pinx GC is in perfect condition and slopy greens. Had some putts that I had to run over fringes and rough to get to the tucked pins.
Pro-Am was nice today. Played with three very friendly and good golfers. They seem very friendly over here and very polite. The place looks like it comes stright from the "Lord of the Rings trilogy". We're staying at Jeju Island which is a summer paradise with nice beaches. Now, the weather is not really up for it but it's not as bad as we were warned it was gonna be. Cloudy and 18 today is well above average over the last two weeks.
Game felt good today. Have been resting a lot this week which feels very strange for me. We only walked the course yesterday with wedges and a putter doing a lot of shortgame. Both because it's always good to practise shortgame and to see where not to miss the shots when coming into the greens. Keeping on the shotgame mode for the rest of the day exept for 1 hour of swingdrills.
Me and Colin made a little video today. We tried not to include too much golf so there will be some other stuff. The only problem is to upload videos over here. We'll see if my hacking skills are good enough.
Fat ass is stopping me to fullfill my dream of ever going in a Formula 1 car. Too bad:)
3rd hole. It could also be a few more holes on the course which all look very similar. The rest of the course is cool though.
