Oosthuizen comes out on top


What an emotional win for Louis Oosthuizen at the SA Open last week, any comments about these guys not caring were clearly wrong. The simple truth is that to get to the level of Oosthuizen, Schwartzel, Grace and Stone talent is not enough. The deep passion and commitment these guys have is evident when you see what a win means. This week at Leopard Creek should be another classic, cant wait!


Have you started practicing yet?


We are looking forward to seeing you over the holidays, putting in a little practice and enjoying your game much more.

Well done Sid!


Having just retired, Sid had at long last some time to work on his golf. The results have been excellent to date. As you will see in the screenshots, Sid has managed to simplify his backswing and for the first time in many years is now releasing the club correctly.

The direction of technology


Are you making the most of what we have?

The PGA Tour has seen spectacular increases in distance off the tee. Our sense is that the percentage increases have by now way been replicated for the average golfer. The good news is that means that there is a ton of potential available to you.

Using perfectly fitted, larger-headed, longer-shafted drivers, the best players have a 15 – 20% yardage gain. Have you seen that improvement in the last few years? It won’t take us long to calculate just how big an improvement you could make.

Smallest change; biggest improvement

Sometimes a golfer has the right tool, but is using them in the wrong way. Sometimes just a change in ball position; an improvement in setup; or the sequence of the downswing; produce that 10 – 15% improvement.


What motivates you?


Is there a particular format you enjoy most?

We’re trying to gain a better understanding of what’s important to our golfers. In the last two weeks, we’ve really appreciated the responses to the simple questions asked. If you didn’t answer and want to help out, we’ve got the first two weeks below.

This week we examine formats. We sense that this is an area of the game where golfers of different ages, and those with different handicaps, might have different views.

Let us know

This is one question. Let us know your most and least favorite format.
