  3. Very interesting indeed @Club Rat, it is a 190m tee shot from here. The little fairway starts at about 150m. The view to the other side is just as spectacular.

    So simple, but SO important. Back to basics was never a bad idea...

    Golf Travel in South Africa

    South Africa is one of the best golf destinations offering the international traveler the best Safari and Golf experiences.
  7. Great pics! Would love to play that course!
  8. Don't get me wrong here. The purpose of this drill is more to gain mental strength rather than the technique for any club you choose. Since it is harder to hit the last (longest) club, you get only that one chance by the time you get to it to up the % of the result. The idea is that you have already completed your practice with the clubs you are working on and then do this drill to see how that practice relates to a pressure situation simulated on the range.
  9. I think the driver and longer clubs are certainly important, but the mid and shorter irons are in my book the most important clubs. If I missed the fairway with the driver, I'd like to know that I have a good chance of hitting the green after a recovery, and if I do hit the fairway, I still want to hit the green to try make the birdie. Also, on a course you'll hit driver only 10 or so times where the shorter clubs are hit all the time. Would like to know your thoughts @iacas :)
  10. A simple way to simulate the Golf Course pressure on the driving range... Follow these steps to simulate the pressure of the course on the driving range. Step ONE: After your regular stretches, warm up with 12-15 shots. Hit these shots with a relatively short iron. Small swing with a slightly assertive routine. Step TWO: Use FOUR golf clubs. Long, medium-long, mid and short. A good combo will be as follows: 9-iron, 7-iron, 5-iron, FW-wood OR driver, 4-iron, 6-iron, 8-iron. Step THREE: Make groups of golf balls as pictured above: 4-3-2-1. Step FOUR: Hit four shots with t
  11. Errrr.... Typo: Els and not Else... Sorry about that :) Is there a way to edit a topic started post?
  12. It's gotta be the 17th at Oubaai for me. The course is in Herolds Bay near George on the famous Garden Route of South Africa. It's the first Ernie Els signature course in South Africa. The hole is short, but depending on the conditions, your club selection may range from 4iron to pw.
  13. Yep, @WUTiger, that is a great idea. I attended the show this year and it was fantastic. Our company had a stand in the travel section. You meet amazing people! I especially enjoyed the PGA seminars and training provided to fellow pros about the industry. You'll be able to get in @dave_pga as you are a pro too. Just go on their website and register as a pro..
