Win with your pick for the biggest Major of the year!
With just over a week to go, I’m sure you are all as excited as I am.

Can you believe a year has gone past after staying up all Sunday night to watch Sergio Garcia claim victory and win his 1st Major?
There is so much excitement leading up to the 2018 Masters Tournament.

I feel there are a few golfers in contention this year, but  many years in the past, the victory has gone to an underdog. We will be running a competition for the Masters 2018.

1. Who do you think will win the 2018 Masters Tournament?

Prize: 4 rounds of golf for the winner, and if there are multiple winners, we will do a draw.

2. What will the winning score be after 72 holes?
Prize: 4 rounds of golf for the winner, if there are multiple winners, we will do a draw.

The winner will be the person with the correct score, or the closest to winning score. If there are multiple winners, we will do a draw.

Winners will be announced after the tournament.

Ebotse Masters Par 3 Challenge – 4th April 2018
The Ebotse Masters Par 3 Challenge 2018 will take place on the 4th April 2018. Tee times: 15h00 – 16h30.

Golf course report by Bethuel Moyo:
Last week we had 116mm of rainfall in 2 days. We had to close the golf course on Friday as it was too wet for play. The rainfall was good as it filled up the dam level.

The challenges we had was with washed-out bunkers on several holes, but we managed to get most of them and the golf course ready for the weekend.

Most of the golf course has dried up, but only holes 12 and 16 remain slightly wet. The hole 12 bunkers that were full of mud have been repaired and are back in play.

You probably know how hard it is to find the short stuff from the tee box.
It’s fine margins at impact, so there’s an easy way to improve.

The experts continually tell us that without a good setup it’s almost impossible to hit a good golf shot.
They also note how little attention regular golfers pay to their setup. So let’s change that.
You’ve all got your smartphone. Let’s get those pictures taken!


Have a friend take a photo of you at address on the range. Check your alignment.
Check your posture and your tilt. How do your arms hang? Are you reaching or too cramped?


From face-on, check your width of stance; your ball-and-hand position; and your weight distribution.
Is your right shoulder (right-handers) lower than your left or are they level? What should they be?

If you want to hit more consistent golf shots, with cleaner, crisper contact, with the swing path and
face angle ensuring contact square to the target line, then invest some time into your setup.

If you send us the two pictures from the angles shown above, then we’ll gladly respond with some quick thoughts.
If you want us to take the photos and walk you through where you immediately can improve your setup, and therefore the quality of your golf shots, then
