Welcome to the team

The Met welcomes Yusuf Raidhan, our new Head Teaching Professional!

With the opening of the new shop and swing studios a matter of weeks away, we’re excited to announce the arrival of Yusuf Raidhan as our Head Teaching Professional.

Yusuf has spent time in the UK working with Dennis Pugh and has just moved to Cape Town after 4 years working at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington under Michael Balderstone and Martin Briede. Yusuf has experience in working with kids, beginners and elite players and we can’t wait until the new facility is ready for him to start helping everyone with their game!

For now, Yusuf is available for lessons on-course and in the nets – please enquire at the pro shop or contact him directly:

You’ve come this far, now get closer

Feel and forgiveness come together
Most cavity back wedges offer added forgiveness by sacrificing feel. Not the CBX 2. It helps you play tricky wedge shots more efficiently and more smoothly.
Got spin?
At the end of a round, take your wedges to the practice green and check your shot dispersion.
Getting closer now feels better
More weight has been moved to the toe, middling the center of gravity while a Gelback TPU insert reduces vibration. The result? Softer feel at impact.
It’s chip-off time
If you want to have more fun around the greens, improving your wedge play is key. Test your chipping skills with us.

Fix par 3 mistakes

Teeing your ball up on par 3s makes clean impact a bit easier, but go too high and you lose ball speed and land short of the green.
By teeing up too high you increase the chances of striking the ball high up on the club face and losing lots of ball speed.

So even if your club selection is spot on, you would still fall short of the green.

Next time you’re on the range take ten shots with the same club at the same target and note your average distance and dispersion.
Before you tee up at all, think about positioning yourself at a spot on the tee box that gives you the best angle into the green based on your natural shot pattern as well as the conditions.

Better course management
Swing improvement takes time, but good strategy brings immediate results. We’ll help you make better decisions on the golf course that will put you into more scoring positions.
