A day of golfing for Charity

It was a perfect day for golf! Light wind, bright day and beautiful Silport golf course. Being a working day it was difficult for the organizers to attract enough players particularly immediately after the Golden week. Yet 42 players were on the final score card and many others joined for dinner in evening.  

For me it was a milestone of life because I was restarting my golf after a gap of 2 years that I needed to fix my injured back due to too much golf without sufficient conditioning!! I enjoyed every minute on course and even scored lowest net score in my flight of players who were my colleagues from P&G days. I also got a prize for scoring nearest to the pin on a par 3 hole! Sandwiches were served on the golf cart so we enjoyed our bites while we played and most graciously our dear Terri arranged vegetarian sandwich for me that was nice.

You Dao foundation had arranged a big team of volunteers to make sure all activities from bags check in to registration to tournament briefing to dinner and then prize distribution were executed perfectly.

It was nice meeting many old friends over dinner and before and after the game. One thing was sure – anyone I asked how was the game, response was we enjoyed.
