I hope you all enjoyed the Ryder Cup, my thoughts on the picks of Garcia and Stenson proved to be 100% wrong. Team Europe was on fire, whoever would have predicted such a heavy defeat for one of the strongest teams the USA have ever put out…just shows.

I missed most of the event as I was in Zambia for a wedding and 100 miles from a TV and Wi-Fi, I did however get to play again at Lusaka GC where I had my first ever round of golf. My brother, nephew and I we hosted by the long serving Professional Paul Tembo and it was wonderful to reminisce.

Congratulations to Kevin Stone on his runner-up finish in this weeks SA Senior Open, he finished 2 behind Mark McNulty.Kevin has had a torrid year health-wise so this is a remarkable achievement, well done!

What can you learn from Kevin?

It’s that time of the month again so please join us at the range for the putt for cash and pitch for dough competition, sponsored by Harbour Wealth. There is a carry over from last month so the first to pitch into the “bin” will win R2000!

They say that “it only takes one great shot to bring you back again.”
Next time you’re out we want you to hit more great shots than usual.
Then we want you to hit even more the next time.

A set of irons working for you and not against you makes this so much easier to achieve.
You’ll square face to target; and sole to turf; experiencing the real joy of sweet contact
so much more often.

There are over 1,000 fitting options on
any single iron. Wow. Yes, lie angle; shaft type;
and length & flex alone usually makes for over
900 options. And we still haven’t touched grip
type and size; swing weight;
or even the amount of offset.
The correct lie angle on your irons brings
the sole of the club back square to the turf
at impact. An incorrect lie angle will make that
very difficult to achieve. Depending on whether
you are toe or heel up at impact, the face will be
pointing to the hook or slice side of your target
at impact. Why suffer that challenge?

Don’t suffer in silence. Let us help you hit more great shots.
Check out your lie angles with us.

In a recent survey 38% of the golfers who responded,
stated that the greatest motivation to join a coaching
programme was “hitting better golf shots”.
We agree. The pleasure you get from hitting good
golf shots more than justifies any time spent
on improvement.

What is it that you enjoyed most about your last round? Was it the score? Was it winning?
Was it the social experience? Was it enjoying the moments when you hit a shot flush, solid, and accurate?

Investing some effort and time in improving your ball striking brings you all of the above.
The joy of better shots more often; a better score; more victories; and surprisingly to some, a better social experience.
Next time it’s going well, check your lightness of mood. We bet you’re having more fun with your friends.

Every time you hit a great golf shot, you feel a real sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, however good or experienced you are. Come on. Take a step to hitting more great shots.

Happy golfing!
