  The mental secret for consistency
 Performance Tip of the Week

By Mark Fairbank, BSI Mental Coach and Head of Golf Performance

"I want to be consistent” is the most common request that amateur golfers have of their coach, it’s the hunt for consistency that sells buckets and keeps flood lights on at ranges. While lessons with your local PGA Professional and hitting more balls a day than Vijay Singh will, as logic tells us, lead to an improvement in your swing, it is not the real key to consistency in performance on the golf course. This is because the game of golf, by nature, is inconsistent.

BSI Premier Medal

Congratulations to David Harrold for his back-to-back win in the BSI Golf Premier Medal with a 4-under score of 68 on Royal Johannesburg & Kensington East Course played on Friday, 25 March 2022. David’s golf seems to be getting better and better every week as the score of 68 is now the personal best for the year in a BSI tournament. David is definitely raising the bar, which is a good thing as it creates a higher standard for himself and his fellow BSI golfers. Keep it going David and dare we say three-peat with the 72-hole competition this week?

Personal bests from the BSI Golf Premier Medal:
Tiaan van Wyk 81
Gerhard Botha 81
Cara Bosman 83
