From the Founder’s Desk

There is great value in setting goals, writing them down and sharing. Junior Academy student Grant Labuschagne posted “My goal is to shoot 72 today” on Friday morning before his medal round on our player support app CoachNow. While Grant fell just short of his target score, making his target known to his support team helped to manifest a medal victory with his eventual score of 73. Well done, Grant. Doing the extra things that others won’t is the smartest way to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

Premier Division Medal

Congratulations to Jordan van Niekerk on winning the Premier Division Medal with 71 on Royal Johannesburg & Kensington East Course last week Friday, 6th August, and taking back-to-back titles. This great feat followed straight after Mangezi Maswanganyi’s same achievement three weeks ago. Are we going to go one better this week, Jordan, and get the treble? Watch this space.

Well done also to Samantha Conradie who achieved her personal best with 78 on the day.
