RSC 33rd Annual Golf Championship @ KGNS

Another year passed and I have blogged this annual event for the last three years. Royal Selangor Club was able to secure another prestigious golf course for the event and it was held at Subang National Golf Club also known as KGNS (Kelab Golf Negara Subang).
Players came in as early as 6.30 in the morning to register themselves and  have a good breakfast before the tee off.
KGNS is an old and renown golf course in the country with many keen seniors golfers of all kinds such as retirees, high powered politicians etc etc and walking on the course is popular among the members of the club. 

Friends of RSC fueling with food before the game.

The breakfast was good nothing elaborate but good enough to start the day.
Some serious golfers practicing their putting and hoping to win something.

Getting ready for a group photo session.
I had the honour to play with the Convenor Dato' Haris and we started off at Tee Box No.1 as we were on the first flight.
The participants of the first flight, Bala, myself, Dato Haris & Saiful Ong on the right.
Dato Haris, the Convenor did not play well this year, just too bad and maybe it will be better next year.
Bala a is hard hitter, uses a driver on the fairway with an interesting ball projectory which slices dramatically up the air but accurate.
Saiful Ong emerged Champion for the gross category playing on his home soil and he surely had a good game of golf on this particular day.
This guy is only a social golfer not aggressive and is no threat to his competitors. He takes a lot of photos while playing and how is he going to play well....
The weather was perfect though it was threatening at the beginning with a possibility of a downpour.
Prize for Hole in One and no body was lucky to take back this watch.
The green wasn't that fast maybe a speed of 8.0
The Champ started with a bogey but finished the last hole with an amazing style a birdie which made him the Gross Champion. Congratulation Saiful Ong.

Overall I had an enjoyable round of golf, playing with better and more skillful players. I would love to play with them again.
Dato' Haris putting well at last but it was too late then.
The President of RSC Ronald Quah giving out prizes for novelty winners during the lunch at KGNS.
The man besides me is Johnny Soon he emerged Champion for the Senior Golfer Category and congratulation to him. 
I hope to qualify again next year for another great event, Adios Amigo to the Section members of Royal Selangor Club. See you again.
