The 2019 Southbroom International Shoot Out

The 2019 Southbroom International Shoot Out was well supported and enjoyed a larger entry this year! Thanks Again to  Colin McKay (083 279 5939) and his company Applied Outsourcing for his wonderful  ongoing Sponsorship of the International Shoot Out.

The 2 day format was more relaxed and the Saturday Valentines Dinner dance that involved all the players was a very enjoyable evening! Congratulations to the winners, the Best Friends Team of Andy & Eli with Seline & Uli, all Swiss Southbroomers members, who played fine golf and counted out the Bloody Foreigners into 2nd place Roger & Heather, Hannah & Emil, a great Scots/Austrian combo of Southbroomers!

Saturday Night saw the Southbroom Legends Band of Mel, Richard, Deon & Des encouraging a couple of guest acts to entertain the audience. Chris Ledden crooned away, together with Malcolm Greenslips. Great to see Dix Vorster singing here again and introducing them all was the legendary  Johnny Cash.

Top 5 Overall!

Do you have a spare boat?

We have had a request to ask if anyone perhaps has an old rowing boat or old dingy that may like to donate to the club that could be moored on the 13th Dam and used by course staff for maintenance. Thanks to Justin Klusener for the great pic of the 13th hole.

How right we were:

The new Srixon Z-STAR Golf Ball
We said this was a golf ball that was beyond expectation. If you want everything (soft, fast, far, spin, durability, and now add stability in the wind) then the Srixon Z-STAR Series is your golf ball. Beyond expectation is one week, three tours, three wins, one golf ball. J.B. Holmes (PGA Tour), Ryan Fox (European Tour) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (Senior Tour) all won last week using the new Srixon Z-STAR Series Golf Balls.

Make it your business to try the new Z-STAR this week. Whether it’s your fourball or the club competition, the winner’s circle awaits. Call us in the shop.

Feel the thrill
Enjoy some speed
There’s no getting away from the fact that speed matters.
But the great news is that the smallest increase, translates into lots of distance.
And the even better news is that the smallest changes can create greater speed increases than you thought possible.
Increasing your clubhead speed by
just 1mph adds 2mph to
ball speed, and that results
in 4 extra metres.
Just look at how many ways we can add to your clubhead speed:
Upper body
rotation
Downswing
sequence
Shaft Length Shaft flex &
performance
Weight
We’re delivering thrills
Creating the perfect match of ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate, maximises the distance you’ll get off the tee. A change of just 1° and 500rpm can unlock 20 metres. How much potential can we unlock for you? Act now.

One week, three Tours
How good could you be?
A reason to stay connected
This might be one of the most compelling reasons to practice together with at least one friend.
If you’ve set out on a “Deliberate Practice Plan” to acquire a new skill or master a particular shot, then you need feedback. Get someone to video your swing. Now you can observe your setup, swing, and focus on the new movement you’re after. We might think we’re making a full shoulder turn, but what does the evidence show us?
You need someone to share a drink with
Getting friends to practice, provides the opportunity for fun competition, feedback, and a shared experience afterward. We’d be happy to help make your sessions as productive as possible with some extra advice and feedback.
