The gents from the Highlanders Team took a break from rugby to join us for a round of golf at the Met on Wednesday Morning! They loved the course and the beautiful scenery!

Everyone wants forgiveness

And you want it all ways
If your handicap is over 18, then there’s a good chance that you either don’t get great height on your approach shots, and/or often lose the ball to a fade or slice. There’s technology to help: Super Game Improvement!

Too many of our inexperienced and higher handicap golfers miss out on the fitting process. They don’t think they’re skilled enough. Where’s the logic? "I’m not that good so I’ll play with an iron that makes the game harder!" Get fitted. Make the game easier.

Changing shapes

Super game improvement irons used to look like mini metal woods. No longer. Materials, manufacturing and smart design deliver technical assistance in good-looking models. Talk to us. Let us show you. Oh, and let us FIT you.

Knock it down. Knock it close.

Played with the right technique and this shot spins a ton. The ball stops and even reverses. Setup and ball position at address are important. So is an angle of attack that is shallower than many of you have. You’ll even see the very best slightly deloft the club at impact.
Choosing between a high 56° wedge shot or a knock down three-quarter 52° wedge approach; the best players will take the knock down every time.

Learn to play this shot
If you want to be more accurate from 100 metres in; setting up more birdies or a par-save; then most amateurs would benefit enormously if they could hit their wedge shots on a lower trajectory with more spin. Come on. Be better. It’s time to learn a new skill.
