Back home in Switzerland

8 03 2010

Hi all
Not much to tell you about my week back in Switzerland other than its good to be home and that the weather is really really s…

I went to practice 3 or 4 times this week and am happy to say that I am not the only crazy person in Switzerland. It must be said however that its generally the same crazies out there (the rest of you are chicken!) and I hope that we all see the positive in our golf this coming season.
One other thing I have noticed. There are some people who really believe that its possible to achieve my goal and there are some that think its never going to happen. Interestingly the ones that are negative don’t actually ask how I think I am going to do it and rarely believe that some hard work and self belief will see me get there. Those that believe, ask the best questions, and really do show an interest in how to get there. Goes to show, it takes all sorts and I hope to prove the nay sayers very wrong by slaying a few dragons on the way.

Till next time and thanks for the support.

Cheers

Geoff

I must say that I feel very proud of the way you’re working at the challenge that you’ve set yourself! Sometimes I feel very envious as well but I know that it’s very, very hard work and I’m not sure that I could pull it off – but I have every confidence that you can!
I have a very funny story to relate to you (something that happened when Kerr was playing at Jackal Creek this last Sunday) – unfortunately, I don’t have time right now, I’ll hopefully be able to get it off to you tomorrow.

The Jackal Creek Story – Kerr was about to hit off on the 4th when this little old lady suddenly teetered onto the t-box (in range of his back-swing) – cupped in her hands was a little white golf ball and she plaintively turned to all the guys there, asking if this ball belonged to any of them. They replied in the negative and she said that she was trying to find the owner of this ball; because she’d picked it up last week whilst going for a walk and when she got home her husband was angry and told her that she was not allowed to pick up balls on the course, as they belonged to the golfers. She then asked – “Do any of you men know someone who has lost a golf ball…… I really want to return the ball to its owner” – desperately trying to hold back their laughs; the guys all said ‘No, they didn’t know of anyone who had lost a ball” (bunch of liars)! “What do you think I should do with this ball”, she asked; they all said they did not know; “Do you think I should take it to the Golf Manager’s office and ask him to try and find the owner”.
Kerr then made his suggestion (very cruelly) and said to her “Do you see those 4 men coming up behind us….. I think you should go and ask them if the ball belongs to them”

That is hilarious, of course we never lose golf balls and I hope that the 4 ball behind owned up and thanked her for her stupendous efforts…… Tell Kerr I know what it’s like to never lose a golf ball, cheers

Hi Geoff,

Glad to hear you are ‘enjoying’ our brilliant weather! Okay okay! so I’m chicken !
Sounds as though a couple of your so called friends are trying to keep you anything but positive! My simple advice to you is not to waste an ounce of energy on them – save it for your own goal! There are alway ‘nay sayers’ in this world. You don’t have to prove a thing to them – just to yourself.
Keep your chin up and until the weather improves, hit a few balls for me too.

Cheers
Dorothy

Hi Geoff,

Great to hear from you. Don’t set too many goals. Take one hurdle at a time and then give yourself a good pat on the back for it – and then onwards.
You’re working hard, you have the ability and you’re receiving the necessary assistance. Only one point left – believe in yourself and you’ll do it!!
Good luck!

Cheers
Dorothy

PS
If I were you, I’d stay in South Africa for the moment – no point in fighting snowdrifts when you can stride on green fairways…………… sorry what was that?!!!
