Seniors’ Society News

Seniors’ Society

In their second match of the season, the Seniors League team gained a very creditable half against a strong Somerset West outfit.

Suat Palanduz and TJ Lee had to fight hard to halve their match to maintain their unbeaten partnership before Mike Rolfe and Gordon Simmons got back to winning ways with a 2 up victory. Deon Minnaar and Neil Rix were outgunned, as were the final pairing of Pieter van Wyk and Jan Horn. It was therefore up to Bob Rees and Bert Vos to ensure their successful partnership continued. With Bob struggling with a stomach virus, Bert played some excellent golf to allow them to keep their noses in front. It was fitting that after both opponents had birdied the final hole, Bert used his final stroke of the game to sink a great five foot putt for the pairing to win the match one up.

The next match is in just two weeks’ time on 17 March at Devonvale.

Yours in golf,

Bob Rees

Find your truth

Before you can let the club do the work
We want you to hit better golf shots with every iron in your bag. Besides the design of the head, the next most important aspect is your lie angle. When your lie angle matches your swing, your irons work better for you.
Find your lie >
If you’re struggling with hooked iron shots, your lie angle could be too upright.
If your iron shots are going right, there’s a good chance your lie angle is too flat.
Many brands try and solve the problems they think each golfer might have at different handicap levels by creating off-the-shelf irons with a specific lie angle. But that might not be right for you.
We’re here to help you hit better approach shots

Build your best game

Breaking through to lower scores for the first time is a great feeling. By isolating specific aspects of the game you need to improve, we can help you make big achievements more easily.
How many rounds could you go without a three-putt?
How many could you sink from greenside?
What if you were comfortable hitting any iron in your bag?
How much further down the fairway could you go?
How important is playing better golf to you?

What part of your game can we improve?
Benchmarking particular skills is a great way for us to identify where you can make the biggest improvements quickly.
