Golf Day

Today we golfed with our Asian distributors and a few customers at a course about an hour from Bangkok. I was a bit worried that I would have a relapse of yesterday once I got out there, but everything went fine. My golf game is not so good, but we all had a great time. We played at the Subhapruek Golf Club, which was gorgeous. No shortage of rain in this part of the world to be sure. I head back to Texas tomorrow with connections in Tokyo and Dallas. It is going to be a long long day.

My caddie. She did a great job and stroked my ego a bit after some really bad shots. :)

Lots of water on Subhapruek.

Another scenic hole.

The group in front of us and their caddies on the green.

Glad you're healing up, Chris. Sorry about your golf game, but... aren't you supposed to lose to the customers anyway?

Those are great pics; glad you could recover to get out on the course and get your @$$ handed to you!
Have a safe trip home.

Bet you're looking forward to the first "bug hug" when you get back. Hope you're back on the bike soon!

No more gut rot! Sweet!

What's up with the Plan 9 From Outer Space hat on the caddie?

Bryan: I was actually thinking "sandpeople" from Star Wars myself.

Okay. I don't know if I can keep reading your blog.

What with all this exotic travel, I'm developing a severe case of Chris envy.

Yeah, amazing about the proliferation of golf courses in Thailand. Love how the caddies are wearing long sleeves and head covering, despite the heat. We saw many older white guys with their clubs in the fancy hotels in Chiang Mai. However, maintaining these courses is a tremendous misuse of water resources, especially during the dry winter months.

Boy, your job just sucks...:)
I'm glad you're feeling better, food poisoning about on the same level as being severly seasick...makes me feel ill just thing about it.

Syd - Thanks. I guess losing to customers is a good practice, I just wish I had a choice in that matter. :)

Oldman - you golf at all?

Mallie - he came to get me at the airport last night. It was very good to see him.

Bryan - I am not sure. I think they like to keep the girls covered up so that they are not a distraction to the men golfing. Sad, but I think that is why.

Eclectchick - the grass is always greener. :)

Lauren - don't know about monsoon season. It only rained one day when I was there and just for a very short period of time.

Fendergal - to my knowledge, most Asian countries use female caddies and they are dressed pretty similar. I asked my caddie is she was hot and she said no. She pulled up her sleeve and I felt her arm. It felt super cool. Not sure what there trick is.

Michelle - it is a bad feeling for sure that I hope not to experience again for a long long time.
