R2000 can be yours tonight

Friday, 05 October 2018

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!

Spring is the perfect time to work on your game

Thursday, 06 September 2018

So dust off your clubs and join us.

Spring is here and although the weekend weather looks a little bleak, today we have 28 degrees and sunshine!

The difficult decisions have to be made…

So Bryson DeChambeau’s hot form continues and with it, his selection on to the USA Ryder Cup team along with Tiger and Phil Mickelson. Team USA does look particularly impressive and has made the decisions of Thomas Bjorn far more difficult. You would have thought that with Matt Wallace winning three times this season that he would be an automatic pick, however Bjorn has gone with Sergio (out of form), Stenson (injured), Poulter and Casey. His issue has been the need to add some experience but I am not sure Sergio and Stenson warrant his confidence, time will tell…

Understanding your pitching and impact.

This week’s tip might help you with your short game as it did Peter. The simple understanding that your hands should oppose each other can really simplify the whole swing, check out the video and give the drill a try.

If you need help with your game, please get in touch with me.

Join us again next week.

Please note that this Friday nights event had been postponed to next week as the weather forecast looks a little bleak.

We’ve had some very special visitors

We were honoured to have the Slater family and friends here on Friday last week to have a few drinks in the memory of John Slater.

The DA’s John Steenhuisen visited us along DA MP Dean McPherson.

“You should play a driver with more loft.” It’s a nice generalisation.
But that’s what it is: a generalisation.
If you want the most improvement from a new driver,
then come and get fitted. Let’s create the right launch conditions.

Here’s a golfer who bought a driver off the shelf.
And here’s his performance after he was fitted properly.

Despite playing the latest technology, it took just 20 minutes to find an extra 21 metres,
by LOWERING the launch angle. In this case, spin was also lowered.

There’s a driver DNA – ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate. We need to match those when fitting you for a driver.
How close is your driver to your Launch DNA now? Do you have 20 metres or more of performance in the right DNA?
Come and see us. Let’s unlock your potential to thrill.

Make bounce your friend. Learn how to use the bounce on
your wedge and you’ll lower your scores.

Using the bounce on your wedge makes golf easier, more fun, you’ll play with more confidence,
and open up a variety of greenside shots.

You’ll read a lot on what bounce you should have on your wedges, but what’s the point of having ‘bounce’ if you’re not taking advantage of it? You’re missing out on a better short game.

There’s bounce on your wedges for a reason. Do you know if you’re using yours to improve your consistency and control? It’s time to improve.

Happy golfing!
