Back and practicing!

I returned from Uluru a few days ago, and I am back to practicing.
I feel fully refreshed and am ready to train hard to take my game to the next level!!!
I think going to Ayers Rock was a great idea, as I feel like I came back with a lot of energy!

Unfortunately the weather has been pretty bad since I got back, but you can’t always play under good weather.
Have to get my rain gear on and head out to practice!!

Camel riding!!

Camel-riding1Couple of days ago I went Camel Riding, and it was probably the highlight of the entire trip!
I never knew camel riding would be so fun!

We couldn’t go fast because all the camels were connected for our safety, but it was quite comfortable!

However, my camel had a thing for posing weird faces for the camera, and we couldn’t get a decent photo…
This is definitely on my to-do list if I come back!

Ayers Rock!! (Uluru)

Ayers-Rock4Yesterday I arrived at Uluru, or more commonly known as Ayers Rock!
We joined a tour group and watched the sunrise, where the sunlight also changed the colour of Uluru.

We then went up close with the intension to climb it, but was unfortunately closed due to high winds.

So instead the tour guide walked us around Uluru, showing us all the aboriginal arts and sacred places.
Even just by walking and looking around gives you so much history about the way the native people used to live!

Apparently the aboriginal people didn’t have words and letters to describe things, so they drew on walls instead!!

Until now, I thought Uluru was just a mountain with red sand. However, it turned out to be a gigantic red rock!!
It is one of the biggest rock structures on earth!

When we got back, we purchased a aboriginal artwork.
They paint mostly using different coloured dots along with various shapes to represent something, and the most interesting thing about these paintings are that each one has its own story!!

Tomorrow I will be going Camel riding, so I will keep everyone up to date!

Masters!!

I cannot believe how well Jordan Spieth played to win by 4 shots at the Masters!
Although he was hitting good shots, his short game was incredible.
Watching his short game motivated me to further improve my wedge game so I can play and get in contention on the major tours.
Moreover, the way he handled the pressure by leading the entire 4 rounds, especially the 2.5m par putt on the 16th hole was something every golfer should learn.

He is such a great inspiration. I’m going to get back to practice remembering how he played at Augusta, so that I can make sure it will be me wearing the Green Jacket in the near future!
