The grass is greener…… On the golf course!

“live by it”

Everyone has a dream. Everyone can make goals. But only certain people make dreams become reality. Sometimes there are moments where you wanna give up and you think it might be too hard. You lose sight of what you want because your vision is distorted by all the obstacles in front of you on the way. Everyone faces these challenges everyday. So really, it all comes down to these moments and what they make you believe. In the words of Mary Oliver

“someone once gave me a box of darkness. It took me years to realise that this too, was a gift”

Taking downfalls as opportunities is something needed to be learned because lows are where you learn the most. This brings me to where my story begins. From 63 weeks of injury, to just 63 shots in one round….. Golf managed to steal my heart!

This blog is for all the aspiring golfers who want to know what makes the difference between someone with a dream, and someone who is dreaming.

    Thanks so much for creating your blog Tania. The messages in its pages already go beyond just aspiring golfers; e.g. the 2nd of your favourite quotes (helps me heaps) and your abilities to navigate stuff so far on your golf / non-golf journey.

    Your blog’s wisdom, skill-sharing and info (incl. details of your wristory history) adds many dimensions to what you told me on-course during your caddying of Jenna H @Oatlands last week. Good luck in rest of NZ Open – whatever result!

    Social media may be your “homework”; but this blog is gold! Good luck 2014+

    Ta☺! Hope to catch a round of yours in Australian Open @Victoria GC while visiting family in Melbourne. I predict mid-FEB temp there will be Miami-like. Meanwhile, stay cool in R2 @Clearwater … in less than half temp. compared to what your R2 golf partner experienced as runner-up AM in Adelaide 2 weeks ago!

    Hi Tania,
    Hope this message finds you well! I won’t take too much of your time – just wanted to reach out and ask if it would be okay to send you three ball markers created by my husband. They have the following inspirational quotes:
    “If you must doubt something, doubt your limits” – Price Pritchett
    “The most important shot in golf is the next one” – Ben Hogan
    “Visualize It”
    You are both an inspiration and I think you especially would appreciate the good vibes. I currently keep one in my wallet to help me get through medical school 😊.
    If not, no worries – thanks for being an inspiration!

    All the best,
    Nicolette (proud wife of

    Hi Tania, saw your video on social media in China and found your website. It was an amazing recovery story that you had and just want to wish you all the best in the golf games to come.
