ISPS Handa Singapore Classic

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Last weekend, my hubby brought me to a golf tournament at the Orchid Country Club. It's called the ISPS Handa Singapore Classic.

To tell you the truth, I know nuts about golf, except for there are 18 holes to play and you win once the ball gets into the hole. It's pretty much the mechanics but as for those on par, under par terms, I'm really as blank as a piece of paper can be.

But nonetheless, I still headed down after the heavy pouring rain, got under the scorching sun and decided I will go there for some photos. I don't know what are the names of the golfers though. Can someone fill in the blanks for me?

Here's a little something about the event -----

ISPS recently established the ISPS Handa Japan Relief Fund to raise 15m USD to support the families and communities of those most affected by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.  ISPS will now be harnessing the support of the golf community to maximize the relief effort in 2011 and beyond.

Have you guys spotted your favourite golfer? I sure did have fun taking photos, following them around and I love the total silence just when a golfer is trying to hit the ball. I also found it amusing when we all kept silent when the golfer is hitting, but shutter snapped also immediately the ball left the club. That is one big experience and I think I might just go again.... :)
