We're back in business

Great news this last Sunday as we are allowed to open our bar and operate normally again. We kicked the week off well with our Monthly members' braai on Wednesday. It was great to see our members back in the bar for a beer after golf.
 
This Saturday we'll continue with some great bar specials and with the Springboks taking on the British and Irish Lions on the big screen. Please book with Johan for the rugby, as it promises to be a great afternoon. I can`t think of a better place to watch the game than our beautiful clubhouse lounge.

Introducing the Callaway JAWS wedges
 
 
So many times during a round or a drive around the course, at some point, I hear a golfer or two yelling at their ball to bite as it runs across the green and over the back edge.
 
Well, luckily for them and you, Callaway has taken things one step further with their new wedges. The Jaws Groove design to their new Mack Daddy wedge is the most aggressive groove in golf.
 
The grooves are much sharper, to provide good grip, and spin from different types of lies. I think you will see a big difference from about 80 meters out as it will hop and stop as you see on tour every week.
 
I have always said it, and I will say it again, improving your short game is the easiest way to take strokes off your game and shoot better scores. Here is a way to improve your short game without having to go for a series of lessons.

Let’s start to improve
 
If we can get you squaring the face of the putter down the correct target line, then without improving anything else, we can probably take 3 or 4 shots off your scorecard.
 
 
To get into the position above, perfectly aligned, on a consistent basis while feeling comfortable and relaxed, you do need a putter length that is right for you. A putter length not matched to you, will make putting more difficult.
 
 
It’s pretty obvious that in this fourball, there isn’t going to be a one length fits all putter. Giving you the average length of the putter on tour is also meaningless. You are the only thing that matters.
 
“For us, it's not about winning competitions. It’s about enjoyment. And sinking putts adds to the enjoyment. And by the way, shooting 78 sounds a lot better than 82; and 88 sounds a lot better than 92. That adds to the end of round satisfaction. Spend some time getting the right length putter.”
 
Set up to succeed
There are so many factors that influence your ability to square the face of your putter. Your setup and alignment. The length of your putter. The lie angle and weighting of the putter. Even the grip on the putter. Let’s check that setup so you can succeed.

 3 steps to better par 3s
A safer way to score
 
 
When standing on the tee box of any par 3, your first thought should be ‘what’s the easiest and safest target I can go for?’. Ignore the flag. Find the point on the green that gives you the most room for error.
 
Step 3:
Remove the risk
 
 
Very often, going for the flag on a par 3 increases risk. In this example, a slight miss when going for the flag puts you in the water hazard. It’s an all or nothing shot. But, if you aim for the larger area in the middle of the green, you’re only risking an up and down if you go long or fall short.
 
For one full round, try taking a ‘safety first’ approach on every shot and see what the effect is on your score. Course management is really important to your playing experience. If you’re interested in an accompanied round where we help you with your course management, please let us know.
