Some great golf coming up on tour

Congratulations to Bryson DeChambeau for winning the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. This weekend, the players will take on TPC Boston. With 30 of the 100 players not progressing to the BMW Championship next weekend, there is a lot to play for. We have two South African’s who have made the top 100; Branden Grace (91st) and Louis Oosthuizen (69th), and let’s hope they both have strong tournaments so that we can support them again next week!


Thanks to Dane Adendorff for the great twilight pics above, taken this week

Name our new entertainment lounge – a great room with a view!

As we slowly choose the right décor etc, we are also running a competition to name it! We are looking for a catchy, classy, easy name – unique to Southbroom.The person who submits the final name chosen will win a meal for 2 sponsored by Southbroom Club & a dozen Srixon Ulti Sof golf balls sponsored by Southbroom Pro Shop.  Some great suggestions have been flying in!

Even at the simplest level, there are over 600 fitting options for a single iron.
Many will have 4 (or more) shaft flex options.
That pushes the number of options closer to a thousand.
Some will have more than just 2 shaft options. Now we’re way past a thousand.
 Now consider that’s all before we
look at the size of grip you require.
We’re not asking you to rush out and buy a new set of irons. But when it does come time for you to invest in
improvement and more great shots, remember you’re 1 in a thousand.
Take the time. Take the care.
