OMG!!!! The Augusta Masters is on.... I'd better watch my Astro now before hubby gets back and switch to his Golf Channel.... I thought of locking the channel but ...hihihi..

What is so good about golf anyway? Is it a sport? Anyone who has a stick can play golf...even if you are 9 months pregnant! Gosh... Anyway, let me tell you about this new happening club.

In Europe, it is Wives and Girlfriends (WAG) for football players. Posh Spice is still one of them where all they do is shopping, shopping and more shopping.I would like to start a new club which coincidently is WAG as well but rather different in its meaning. It is Wives Against Golf club. I’m not totally against golf but I just think that it is a silly, tiring, boring, time consuming and cost-money game. Why in the world would you hit a small ball and then go searching for it just to hit it over and over again till it gets into a small hole? Winston Churchill once described golf as “…a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose.” I can’t agree with you more, Churchill!

If you want to be in the WAG club, rules are:-

1. Your husband must play golf.
2. You don’t play golf.

It is as simple as that.

What I know best about golf is Tiger Woods. He is a legend. His 2007 PGA Tour money list is $4,274,091. He earned almost $12 million in prize money in 2005 and another $75 million off the course to increase his career income to more than a half-billion dollars. In little more than nine seasons as a professional, Woods has earned $66 million in prize money worldwide, some of it as unofficial earnings. Assuming Woods continues on the same earnings trajectory, Golf Digest projects that Woods will reach the $1 billion mark in career earnings by the end of 2010.


The money is so tempting and so I decided to continue my son’s golf lessons. Who knows in 10 years time he wants (or forced by me) to turn pro and starts earning more than I or hubby could have in our entire life? I’m not asking him to be Tiger Woods but KJ Choi perhaps? I tried to persuade hubby to let me try the game but sadly it fell on deaf ears. I know I could be an average golfer considering my all-rounder talent….Ehm…

Nevertheless, to all women out there, you are welcome to join me at my self-made WAG club. What we do is just bitching around.... But then again, Iman dearest, just show me the money!! (imagine Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire).
