From the Founder’s Desk

It’s US Masters week and I’m sure you’re as excited as I am to see how Augusta looks and plays in November. My picks are Xander Schauffele and Matthew Wolfe, both of whom have proven big match mentality to contend in the Majors.

I’m so proud of our 3rd year PGA Diploma students, who raised over R30,000 for good causes in their recent golf day. See details below.

BSI Students Raise R30K in Golf Day

Playing the game for a good cause

Our 3rd year PGA Diploma students recently hosted a Charity Golf Day at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC and managed to raise an impressive R30,421 on the day.

Organising the event forms part of the practical assessments they have to pass in order to graduate. The funds will be split between the BSI Bursary Fund and the OG Molefe Foundation. Through both causes, the money will go towards providing sports training and education for those in need. Congratulations to the students. We’re very proud of the amount raised during such a tough year.

More Practical Assessments

Putting knowledge into practice

In addition to organising the golf day, our 3rd year students have had to pass practical assessments in custom fitting and coaching in the last week. The idea is to ensure that the student not only have the classroom theory behind them, but can also put the knowledge into practice with real-world skills. Thus, they are able to provide value to employers and clients in the golf business straight away. This is one of the reasons our graduates are in such demand from the industry and are able to find work across the globe.
