Sanlam Cancer Challenge & Shavathon
Congratulations to the winners of the various divisions in the Sanlam Cancer Challenge – J Erasmus (A-Div); G van der Berg (B-Div); M Streak (C-Div) & E van Jaarsveld (Ladies). They will go through to the Regional Finals and hopefully will make it through to the National Finals. Good luck!

A big thank-you to Dale Michler who sponsored all the competition prizes and an even bigger winner on the day was the Cancer Foundation, as we will be able to give them an extra donation of R1200 thanks to our “Shavathon/ Sprayathon”. It was a festive affair with everyone getting their hair sprayed, so a huge thank you to everyone that came down in support.

Otway & Glenn Hayes Mixed Scramble
The Mixed Scramble was great fun with a host of teams taking on the challenge thrown down by Adam & Ian. Adam and Ian played really well – they shot 62 gross, which included an eagle and seven birdies. Despite that five teams beat them and scored pizza for dinner.

Luke and Jenny Paola; Ingrid and Willem Krige were crowned the winners of the Glenn & Otway Hayes Mixed with a score of 60 points in the American Scramble format.

The winners!

Think about the Par 3’s you play. What is the distance that you just don’t have covered in your bag?
For most golfers, there will be a point between 170 metres and 210 metres where they just don’t have
the club to hit the target distance.

Some of you may even have a club to get to the green, but find you’re just not able to stop the ball.
Your mis-hit is short; your perfect strike, through the back.

The higher lofted Fairway Wood is a great solution for a regular to slower swing speed golfer. The deeper CoG, and usually lower profile, helps to get the ball higher with a steeper landing trajectory. The ball stops quicker.
Bring your problem distance to us. Let us spend time whether improving your technique with an existing club,
or filling the gap with a better solution. Come and spend 45 minutes with us,
and let’s see how best to fill that gap.

If you’re playing golf, outside of a competition, then it’s your rules that count.
If you’ve got some less experienced golfers in your four-ball, you’ll be surprised how much more they enjoy
the round if you play a “scramble drive”. That’s where everyone tees off, but you all play your second
shot from the position of the best tee shot.
You can still have friendly competition, but it’s likely that this is a much more social format:
you come together on the tee; for the 2nd shot; and on the green. That’s more fun together.

Try it. Try and think of different ways to play the game, to allow the less skilled the opportunity to
get much more enjoyment from the experience.

And if you need help finding more fairways on your own, then
