PGM Northport Glenmarie Masters March 2013


NORTHPORT INCREASES PGM TOUR SPONSORSHIP

Kuala Lumpur – Northport has increased the prize money of its PGM (Professional Golf of Malaysia) Tour event by more than fifty percent, taking this year’s purse to RM200,000.

In all, the port authority has underwritten this season’s PGM Northport Glenmarie Masters to the tune of RM250,000.

Set to be played from March 6-9 at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club in Shah Alam, Selangor, the event is co-sanctioned by the Asian Development Tour (ADT) and carries world ranking points.

Both the PGM CCM Rahman Putra Masters and PGM Sime Darby Harvard Masters proved huge successes with their ADT co-sanctioned status. The former was won by Scotland’s James Byrne at Rahman Putra last month and the latter by American James Bowen at Harvard last week.

In a statement, PGM Chairman Tun Ahmad Sarji bin Abdul Hamid said :  “This is the second year that Northport have sponsored this tournament and it is indeed most welcome. This shows that Northport continues to show confidence in our burgeoning Tour and we hope that other companies will show similar example to boost the game of golf in the country”.

“This is a valuable and appreciated way for them to illustrate their corporate social responsibilities (CSR) to the development of Malaysian sport”.

The PGM Tour Chairman added: “As a non-profit organisation, we have two main objectives – to provide a platform for Malaysian professional golfers to earn a living and more importantly that PGM Tour serve as an avenue for young golfing amateurs and professionals to excel in the sport and embark on a journey of success while playing on the Asian Tour and European Tour circuits.”

Meanwhile, Northport Director Dato’ Abdul Samad Mohamed pointed out that Northport had made it their duty to support the PGM’s various programmes, including the Tour.

“After evaluating the comprehensive and long-term plans of the PGM, which focuses on the benefits of both the professional golfers as well as the young up-and-coming players, Northport has taken on board a devotion to help develop Malaysian golf.
“The many (33) tournaments that the PGM Tour has scheduled for 2013 is evidence of their commitment to this ideal, which in turn is a crucial platform to give both established and new golfers a better chance of succeeding on the international stage.

“This is idyllic Malaysian foresight and something that Northport admires and supports fully,” added Dato’ Samad.

Jointly with Northport Malaysia Berhad we would also like to thank our tour partners, the Asian Development Tour, co sponsors, the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club, Golf Malaysia Magazine (official magazine), Gatorade (our drink sponsor) & Srixon (golf balls).

Rizam Wins Harvard Satellite         
Veteran Triumphs by Six Strokes to Earn His PGM Tour Card

Mohd Rizam Ali won the first PGM Tour event he played this year when he claimed the circuit’s second Satellite event today, at Harvard Golf & Country Club in Gurun, Kedah.

The 51-year-old veteran shot a third and final round even-par 72 for a four-under 212 total. That gave the player from Darulaman Golf & Country Club, also in Kedah, a handsome six-stroke victory and automatic entry to the PGM Tour, having secured his card with the win.

The top-three golfers coming into the last round finished in that order as amateur player Muhammad Wafiyuddin claimed the runner-up’s spot with a one-over 217 total and 17-year-old Muhammad Irfan continued the good run of amateurs at the tournament with a third-place finish on 222, five strokes back.

Farid Rashid was alone in fourth on 223, while amateurs Ahmad Zahir and Muhammad Thaznim were tied for fifth on 226, alongside Ruhaizad Hashim.

Lion Goh, another player from the amateur legion, dropped to eight after starting the final in fourth. He shot a last day five-over 77 that left him on 228.

Khairuazree Sahabudin, Mohd Zahid Jaafar (A) and Mohd Adam Shafiq were joint ninth on 230.

Rizam, who had three birdies and a similar number of bogeys on his card, said he struggled somewhat in the heat, but all the same, was happy to have won it.

“My putting was not that good at all and neither was my driving. But my short game really helped me pull through,” said the winner, who added that he now looked forward to playing more regularly on the PGM Tour.

“This is good for me as I finished 58th on the Order of Merit standings last year and this win gives me the chance to play more now.”

Wafi, a 22-year-old college student at nearby Universiti Utara Malaysia who shot a last round 74, said the three bogeys at the 15th, 16th and 17th holes hurt him, but added that the birdie at the 18th made up for it a little.

“Overall I’m satisfied with how I played over the three days,” said the Public Management student. “I was most comfortable hitting it into the green from 100 yards and less. I hit it close most of the time and gave myself quite a few birdie chances, but my putting let me down. Still, I’m happy with how it ended. It was a good experience.”

 Irfan’s father, Razanan, said he was proud of his son’s performance and that they would continue to work on improving his game.

“This is a good result for him. He is only 17 years old and awaiting his SPM results.

“With regards to his game, his long irons and short game were relatively sound, but he needs to work on his driving,” added the proud father.

Irfan carded a final round six-over to go with his 70 and 74 over the first two days. Leader after the opening day, he finished on 222.

The PGM Tour now moves to Glenmarie Golf & Country Club in Shah Alam, Selangor, where the RM200,000 Northport Glenmarie Masters will take place from March 6-9.

BEST WAY TO START SELF LEARNING GOLF


BEST WAY TO START SELF LEARNING GOLF-  STEP WISE
1-WATCH TIGER WOODS PLAYING VIDEOS FROM PUTTING TO CHIPPING  TO IRON HITS  TO DRIVE SHOTS IN THAT ORDER-- remember in pictures- learn to visualize.
2- START PUTTING -ANY WHERE - FROM SHORT DISTANCES
3- START CHIPPING PITCH IN ANY WHERE
4-COMMENNCE USING SHORT IRON 9,8LIKEWISE
5- GET PROMOTED TO FIVE 4, AND 3 IRONS.
6- WELL DONE- TAKE 5 WOOD, 3 WOOD
7- HOORAAAA START THE DRIVER  WHACK AS YOU PLEASE THE MOST JOYFUL  PART OF THE GAME TO THE BEGINNER.  visualize the target  visualize the path of the ball , visualize the ball take of landing  in one picture, feel the hit , see the hit--hitting target.

NOTES  ON METHOD TECHNIQUE
TRY VARIOUS  WAYS OF PUTTING FROM SHORT DISTANCES WHEN HOLING GETS CONSISTENT, LOOT AT SELF FIRST GET THAT FEEL OF HOLING, NOTES IT REMEMBER IT, THEN LOOK AT THE GRIP STANCE, PUTTER POSITION, HEAD, SHOULDERS ETC ETC ETC AND TAKE FULL NOTE –THERE ARE MORE THAN 280 PIECES THAT FORM THE GOLF HIT. AND UNCOUNTABLE  NUMBER OF UNSEEN ELEMENTS THAT GETS INVOLVED WHEN HITTING A TARGET ON COURSE, AND EVEN MORE NUMBERS  IN COMPETITION  AND EVEN MORE WHEN THE STAKES ARE HIGH. WHEN THE STYLE IS 100% YOURS  NOTHING EFFECT BUT YOUR OWN SELF. SO KEEP IT BRUSH IT , POLISH IT GET 2005 CONFIDENCE OF GETTING THAT TARGET-
NOW THAT’S YOUR TECHNIQUE. DO NOT ALLOW ANY TO CHANGE IT. THAT METHOD AND TECHNIQUE BELONGS TO YOU AND YOU DESIGNED THE TECHNIQUE THAT SUITS YOU.
THE SAME PROCEDURE WILL APPLY TO SHORT IRONS, LONG IRON, FAIRWAY WOODS AND FINALLY THE DRIVE.
AGAIN  FIRST GET A CONSISTENT HIT TO TARGET AND DECIDE ON THE TECHNIQUE AND THE METHOD. AND NEVER THE OTHER WAY AROUND, MEANING FIRST LEAN SOME KING OF TECHNIQUE WHAT IS IN THE BOOK OR TOLD BY ANOTHER AND THEM TRY  HITTING TARGET. SUCH METHOD WILL NEVER LAST – WHY ?THE STYLE DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU. JUST LIKE THE DOGS TAIL, WILL COME BACK TO ITS NATURAL STATE.
ABOVE ALL CHECK WITH YOUR SELF – DO YOU HAVE THE DYING URGE TO HIT TARGETS??? DO YOU ENJOY DOING THAT??, DO YOU HAVE THE URGE TO COME RUNNING TO PRACTICE AND LEARN BY SELF?? IF NOT DECIDE ON  ANOTHER GAME OR BE CONTENT BEING A SOCIAL  GOLFER.

FOOD FALACY


ONLY SCAVENGERS EAT DEAD  MEAT .THEY EAT LIVE IF THEY ARE CARNIVOROUS.
Beyond imagination Steve
FOOD FALLACY

Einstein Hisorical
Carl Lewis
Winner billie-jean
Unending spirits Gandhi
Man has certainly reached significant highest in engineering, space, ie, sciences that can be measured in labs. But Man has not made any strides in getting better food than nature-made food. Milk is still the most complete food, anything better, in fact, can be declared  as  not the best for human.
Man despite all the advances in many fields does not understand exactly what is needed by the body to generate new cells hence the tissues. Protein alone is not capable of building healthy cells. There is much more than protein  requirement for building healthy cells.  For instance an African will always be big whatever the food he eats and the average Japanese will be small what ever the food they eat. So goes with elephants they will always be big. Can MAN  explain how a cow -  who only eats grass - generate so much protein, milk, hard skin, claws, horns and bones? What does grass  have to generate such a mass of healthy cells?
Well this is explained by the gene theorist. It is the gene that finally decides what goes to build the body and how it should be built. There is no food to get fairer skin nor a darker skin. The color of skin is not controlled by food. Similarly tall genes will generate tall signals while the short genes will generate short signals. Therefore what ever the food intake, the height will remain unchanged.

What is needed is a complete balanced meal and stay helpless  for the genes to provide the necessary growth. Mental signal of being good is important for the genes to be active. Let's not get complicated on this vast subject now, but we will dwell on that later. Stay on.
The instance commercial instant muscle builders are instant. Those muscles disappear as fast as they come. Furthermore, such muscles are unhealthy and does not  deliver the corresponding, life,strength and vigor in a healthy manner.

The belief that one must eat meat to be aggressive is a  fallacy. Aggressiveness is in the genes and not in the food. Tiger meat does not make a man tiger-like nor does cow meat make man as lethargic as a cow. It is not the food that contributes to aggressiveness nor any personality traits to a person. For sportsmen- it is not the aggressiveness that is needed to win. What is needed is the traits of winning spirit. Aggressiveness is naked, wining spirit is tactful, shrewd, perseverance.
Lizzie-Armitstead- 
Think ----one does not need to depend on animal meat  to be world-class sportsmen . Milk, grains, leaves, vegetables, soya, fruits etc all given by the nature energized by the sun, watered by the rain/clean rivers are the best. They have all what is needed to build healthy cells, to be champions.  Unfortunately there are no  specific proven food to get the spirit of wining, or the skills of creativity, nor the skills of golf; they are in-born. Accidental lucky, fortunate mutations of the genetic code one is carrying. Every one has some kind of skill, if not golf, may be table tennis, or badminton, or swimming all....... Mother nature has been fair to all. Look around there are plenty of illustrative sportsmen and superstars who are natural food eaters. They all stay at  the top for a longer time than man made food eaters. The most creative person in recent history - Steve Jobs - is a total vegetarian
The writes is not advocating any specific food nor suggesting one must give up the existing food consumed but only attempting to direct attention to factors one may have over looked.
How is the cow generating so much healthy tissue in the from of meat, milk, skin, bones, etc etc. with only grass as food????? The horse is such a graceful speedy runner, the elephant such a graceful strong animal.
