Let's fight cancer together

Finding a cure is our goal, spreading awareness plays a role


In December, I’m taking on The Longest Day - the ultimate golfing challenge. I’ll be testing my skill, strength and stamina by playing 4 rounds of golf in a single day to support Cancer Council and raise funds for those affected by cancer.

Please sponsor me and support my efforts to give back and change lives.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with two in three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70, and I want to do something to help change this!

Cancer Council is a community funded organisation, working in local communities to help support people as they navigate their cancer journey.

Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own.

You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference!

You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media.

Thank you so much for your support - it is truly appreciated.

Best wishes,

There's more than one way to make par

When a hole-in-one isn’t a hole-in-one!

Does anyone remember Fred Couples hole-in-three on the famous island-green 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass back in 1999? Last Saturday Eastlake member Ross Coleman managed something similar when he holed his tee shot on the 16th hole. Unfortunately it was with his second ball as his original tee shot went deep into the bushes. It was a great way to make a 3 and a more rare feet than having a hole-in-one.

Congrats Ross, hopefully the next one comes on the original tee shot!

Whether you’re hitting a low bounce wedge from a firm lie or a high bounce from a soft lie, having reliable spin across your wedge set is important for improved short game control.
Vokey’s Spin Milled grooves in the SM7 are narrower and deeper in the low lofts (46-54), while being wider and shallower in the high lofts (56-62).
This gives you added spin on all your wedge shots. And that spin will last, thanks to a unique heat treatment process.

We help you find the right letter.
You hit your number.
There are 23 wedge configurations to choose from, but once we know your swing type, we can set you up to take on any short game challenge with confidence.

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.
