Results are in.
Tied for 23rd place in my first golf tournament. Not too bad!
Will write more later. Gotta do some work here.
Big thanks to DeafNation for their awesome work in planning the event!
Next year in Moline, IL where John Deere PGA is hosted at.

It’s been a big dream of mine to play on some kind of golf tour – Nike, Hooters, Nationwide or even PGA if I can ever become that good.
Anthony Kim, a 22 years old Korean American golfer, just picked up his first PGA tour win at Wachovia Championship, winning by five strokes.
It was about a year ago that I first heard about him. Since I’m a Korean-American myself, I’ve been following those who are of same descent like Michelle Wie and Kevin Na. All I know is that Koreans love to play golf and there are a few driving ranges that are operated solely by Koreans in Los Angeles. When I saw how Anthony Kim played on TV, I knew he has some talent and would win a PGA event one day but not this soon, tho!
I check out his bios and wow, we’ve got almost the same build – 5’10” and 160 lbs. I’m 5’9” and 155 lbs. He’s 9th on the driving distance, with the average of 301 yards.
so I gotta go to driving range and practice everyday. :)

Cool, my uncle gave me his golf travel bag. My clubs better don’t get damaged thru baggage claims. I’m flying to Chicago for a deaf golf charity tournament. Hope I’ll play well!

Today, I made plans with my friend to go to a driving range to “warm up” for a Deaf golf league tomorrow. He told me that the driving range has unlimited buckets, like a buffet, hit all you like. I thought he was kidding me because I never heard of unlimited buckets unless I’m Tiger Woods. When we got there, sure enough, they did have unlimited balls, for $14 dollars, sweet. Also, one of the Deaf league members told me that I gotta score better than 100 to become a member. O_o, pressure. Heh, my friend and I hit the balls like damn crazy muthafuckers. When it got a little boring after hitting like 100 balls in a row, we decided to play a little game. Ofc, one of them was a driving contest—that I won with my TaylorMade R5 driver, :-), played some accuracy games like who can hit the ball closest to the pin or putting the ball between flags as if they’re a fairway. I’m getting pretty confident about my irons but a bit unpredictable with my driver cuz I tend to force it a bit too much. We ended up hitting balls for 3 hours at the driving range and we probably hit more than 500 balls each, heh. Despite all those balls hit, it’s my short game that I’m most concerned with, as I’m not that delicate with putting and chipping. Wish me a good luck at the league game tomorrow. :-)
