The Beautiful 11th Hole
Congratulations to Wilfred Bessell who aced the 11th Hole on Wed 31st Jan. Uncanny how earlier that day he had quipped to friends about how many times he had played par 3’s in his golfing career, and had never achieved a Hole-in-One!
Fantastic. Well done Wilfred!

Fortunately the world is a better place, and sacrifices are largely consigned to our history.
That might not be the case in the golf world.
How many Pro V’s, or other golf balls, are sacrificed to the water, trees, deep rough, out-of-bounds,
indeed anything on the right for right-handers. What are golfers, bedeviled by a slice or
high fade hoping for? Many will claim they’ve aimed left of the target. But golf is a funny old game.
It seems the further left you try to hit the ball, the further right it goes.
End the sacrifice of golf balls. Come and talk to us and let’s put in place a plan to remove the
slice, high-fade, from your golf game. The sacrifice might be a small swing change; or some time
spent on a few drills, but the result is worth it. Being able to hit short and mid-Irons
at the target successfully is exhilarating.

With all the new and exciting releases of golf equipment, it’s likely that many of you will be looking at buying
a new Driver, searching for better performance that will undoubtedly include extra distance.
I want to leave you with this thought.
Justin Thomas is 65 kg and crushes his tee shots past 275 yards on average. He has hit it over 365 yards on a Par 5.

If you are going to buy a new Driver in the weeks and months ahead, please make sure you invest time
with us in finding the right setup for your golf swing. Remember in that time together, just as it happened
with Justin Thomas, we might find small adjustments in your swing that make really big distance improvements.

Derek and Sheena
