Swiss DayHearty South African thanks to our Swiss Lady Members who spoilt the Ladies Section last Saturday! Always a great day on the Calendar. Thank you Anita, Regina, Marianne, Ursula, Alexandra & Gjetrud. So many golfers, men included, were dressed in the Swiss colours and the Swiss flags were everywhere. It all looked very festive! It was a closely contested BB Stab!

The Par 3 Advantage
Become a master of the Par 3s
Just 150 metres from the flag.  You can place the ball on a tee, creating the perfect lie. This is an opportunity to put a low number on your card. For many, it’s the chance for a net birdie. So what goes wrong?
 We see four very common challenges. If you suffer from these, then they’re easy to overcome.
Club selection Ball position
Most of you choose a club which, if struck perfectly,
gets to the flag. As a minimum choose a club which,
if hit perfectly, gets you to the back of the green.
We see a lot of golfers tee the ball up
awfully high when using an iron. You should
be  trying to create the perfect lie.
Game management Technique
Put the ball in the fat of the green
away from trouble, and you have more
room for error. Don’t go flag hunting
when the risk of a 5 or worse is staring at you.
We still see a lot of long irons in bags.
They’re tough to hit consistently. But many of those
who’ve converted to hybrids have never had
a lesson to learn the technique with this club.
Make Par 3 improvement a priority
What improvement would make a difference to your Par 3 scorecard?
We want to help make you a Par 3 Master.
