|Greetings from Derek||Tuesday, 25 July 2017|
The Open Championship has begun at Birkdale in quite cold and windy conditions. It is anybody’s guess who may win with so many great players, and I don’t feel that anyone is really standing out. The top 4 or 5 in the world are not really shinning. It will be interesting to see how Dustin Johnson, World No 1 does after not playing much lately.
There are a number of South Africans in the field and I would love to see Brandon Stone in the top Ten. He did play well at the US Open and he likes the big occasions. Birkdale is a wonderful golf course and if the weather is fine, the scoring will be good
There was some sparkling golf played by Colin McKay in our medal on Wednesday. He made an 8 on hole 13 shooting 82 off a 17 handicap for a nett 65. He won a lesson from me in the Conservancy Day on Saturday, but I just might be looking for a lesson from him.
The Conservancy Day was a huge success and raised a wonderful amount of over R46 000!
Congrats to all the winners and well done to the Dawne, Kathy & their team on organising the day. Special thanks to all the sponsors especially those on the tees! Great vibe!
Southbroom ladies won the Mercedes Ladies Golf Day at San Lameer today on 91 points. They now go to the finals in Johannesburg on 6 November. If they win there they could be jetting off to Mauritius!
Good luck, ladies!
Our breakfast run/walk on Sunday enjoyed a great turn out of over 83 entrants, and it was wonderful to see all the kids, parents, grandparents and family dogs all enjoying time together. Thembi & Peds Bacon & Egg rolls together with strong club house coffees were certainly thoroughly enjoyed after the energetic start to the day.The next Fun Run /Walk is diarised for Sunday 13th Aug in the private schools’ holidays!
The junior clinic was unfortunately a miserable cold and windy afternoon, but those that arrived just loved it! It is great to see the younger families in Southbroom coming to enjoy golf at the club.
Here is a great pic of dads and sons playing golf at Southbroom. Such good time spent with the kids.
