Words fail me when trying to describe the last day of the PGA Championship last week, and I am eating my words about Tiger. He is definitely back and looking like he can win again! To quote David Feherty, “The only mistake I make with Tiger is to under estimate him.”
Our new Bunnies Programme has kicked off
The new bunnies started this week with 17 ladies all keen and eager!

Stand a chance to win a trip for 4 to the 2019 PGA Championship!
|Did you enjoy watching Tiger in the hunt on Sunday? Koepka bombing drives down the middle of the fairway? Next year you could be there to witness the action at Beth Page Black in Farmingdale New York!
All you have to do is buy a raffle ticket and stand a chance to win a trip for four golfers to the 2019 PGA Championship in the USA. It includes return flights on Delta Airlines and 7 nights’ accommodation. On top of that you get to play 2 rounds of golf in the area, and it includes access to the PGA Championship Wannamaker Hospitality Center and tickets to all 4 days. Even better, you will also get the opportunity to play the Black course on the Monday after the Championship round.
The tickets are R1000 each and all money raised will be donated to the South African Golf Development Board. Click here to buy your tickets. T&Cs apply.
You could drive a car with the seat in the incorrect position. But you wouldn’t. You adjust the seat to fit your specification. Even an inexperienced driver makes this change. Driving is easier.
Now, you’re going to rotate a golf club with a very small head around your body,
and try and deliver it back to make contact with an even smaller golf ball,
so that it travels down a target line. Surely that challenge needs you to
“adjust your seat” with a golf club that fits.
This is a ‘no-brainer’. Every golfer should play with golf equipment that makes it easy to repeat a golf swing;
that brings the club face back to the ball; square to the target line. Inexperienced and learning? Make it easier. Improving and aspiring? Make it easier. Good and competitive? Make it easier.
For anyone taking up golf, it can seem intimidating.
Stand on any tee, next time you’re going round, and imagine you’re thirty something
and you’ve had your first 3 lessons. Yes, after just three lessons you’re facing 400 metres,
bunkers, trees and water. We want to change that.
We want to introduce more people to the game. We want them to gain enjoyment from the game immediately.
One way to do that, is to get out on the golf course and play 9 (or even just 6) holes from 50 metres in.
It’s the equivalent of the ‘bunny slopes’ in Switzerland.
For anyone who’s learning, or is less-skilled / experienced, playing golf from the tees can limit the enjoyment.
If you’re playing with family or friends for enjoyment, then setup the game so that they can tackle challenges
they can accomplish, at least some of the time.
