Back on the road again today after a couple of really busy days helping the TaylorMade Demo team over at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. The 4 day Golfest was an equipment lovers dream with every manufacturer under the sun showing their wares and inviting golfers to try before they buy. I know it’ll sound awfully biased of me but it was a huge success for TaylorMade. Part of my duties were to deliver a product presentation on the Sunday afternoon, basically telling everyone about the new R11S & RocketBallz lines. Our demo bays were full to bursting the entire time!
My Thai hosts of the last couple of weeks, Dean & Tommy made the short flight across to Malaysia this week for the second Asian Development Tour event of the year being held down in Johor Bahru. The Johor Masters begins Wednesday and at the time of writing I’m sat on a slowly but surely shrinking reserve list. I’m getting used to it now though, the uncertainty of a place in the starting line up isn’t as much of a distraction as it used to be. All I can do is prepare as though I’m actually in the tournament and hope for the best. We drove down to Johor Bahru or JB as its known this afternoon and hit some balls on the driving range before finding a hotel this evening.
A huge thanks to my clothing sponsor GolfJunkie for sending a package of new clothing over from Thailand with my roommates this week. If you haven’t already checked out their fantastic clothing lines please do so at www.golfjunkieshop.com. As you can see the designs are colourful, eye catching and take it from me, incredibly comfortable to play golf in.
An early practice round tomorrow morning with R. Nachimutu, a fellow Impact Elite Golf Academy student and the in-form player in Malaysia at the moment having finished 4th in the first ADT event last month and winning last weeks PGM Clearwater Classic.
