To all at Metropolitan Golf Club,

My name is De Waal Botha, I am newly appointed as the Pro Shop Manager here at the Metropolitan and I am very excited to be part of the Metropolitan family. I grew up on a farm outside of Worcester, so I am very much Afrikaans. I will try my best to accommodate you in English.

I am a member of the PGA as a club professional and I am a proficient golfer. I currently play off a 0 handicap.

I left my job as Assistant Golf Manager at De Zalze Golf Club at the end of February after being there for almost 4 years. With De Zalze as the foundation to my knowledge and experience, I feel that I have a lot to offer to the members and guests at the Metropolitan Golf Club.

I am very happy to work with a great team at the Metropolitan Golf Club and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and members of the club for helping me settle into my new position and the club.

I cannot wait to get to know you all better and form great relationships going forward.

Kind Regards,
De Waal Botha

Distance is more than ball speed and launch conditions. The new 338 Speed Dimple Pattern on both Z-Star golf balls creates a low drag coefficient as well as a high lift coefficient. Less resistance and more glide, giving you a longer carry.

Looking for a 230 metre+ tee shot with an average swing speed?
Launching it higher will help. Just how high would you need to launch your tee shots?

One of the biggest differences between Tour Professionals and regular golfers is
the amount of attention the very best continually pay to their setup.

Rickie Fowler, in a instruction piece several years ago, made the point that he continually
worked on his grip, body alignment, stance width, and his posture (including the body bend and tilt)
in practice with his caddie.

To view this short article on Rickie Fowler’s setup,


I think most golfers can embrace Jack Nicklaus’s comment that it’s almost impossible
to hit a good shot with a poor setup. So, the question is, why don’t golfers put more effort into this
relatively simple process? Which, of the several potential reasons we’ve identified, do you think is the
cause of so many poor shots on any given day?
