So ry ek met my bike om maar golf te gaan speel
Mode of transport, dan maak 'n boer 'n plan

Ek sal jou definiteif kontak as ek weer in Pennington is sodat jy my Port Shepstone se baan kan wys.
Sal lekker wees. Umdoni se baan is ook goeie oefening
Sien uit om jou te ontmoet en sterkte vir jou golf game🏌️

I just read reply #65.  Sorry to hear the news about your fellow countryman, Mr. Westner.

If I remember correctly, the man was a magician with the sharpest knife of them all, the 1-iron.

May he R.I.P.

This thread makes me want to head to the range.  Unfortunately, I had to put the clubs away 2 years ago due to back spasms and a broken hand.  The thought of swinging a club gives me anxiety, the spasms and back pain were excruciating.  When the spasms occurred, I would go right to the ground in a fetal position or on all four's, with tears running from my eyes.  I locked up at my chiropractors office once so badly, I wailed like a baby for 45 minutes, howling in pain.  Damn game, I want to play so bad!

I feel for you Big Oil. I took up the game last year and I'm enjoying it immensely. I bought new clubs yesterday and broke 100 for the first time. I came second in the competition as the handicap limit was 30 although I still played of 36. It was still a great day though!

Thanks fellow Wild Dogs, I'll be back out there on the fairways someday when I'm more confident my back won't seize!

Glad to hear you took up the game.  It's one of the greatest games on earth. 

Practice, practice, and more practice!  I was only a good player when I played or practiced everyday.

Stay loose, nothing hurts a golf swing more than tension in your muscles. 

South Africa certainly has produced some amazing talent.  I have much respect for how your fellow countrymen such as, Ernie, Retief, Louis, and Charl conduct themselves on and off the course. 

Retief is one of my all time faves.  Ice in his veins, doesn't let the game control his demeanor, yet he's a fierce competitor.

Playing today and tomorrow.  Greens are difficult and fairways are very narrow

Only saw this thread now

I am a member at Eagle Canyon in Honeydew, Jhb.  To me, currently the prettiest course in Gauteng.  I have played 25 different courses last year.
I am also a staff member for a small fee to do admin for Duckhook Golfers. We are a Social League that plays one Thursday and one Sunday a month.  In Gauteng and Cape Town.

Although I am only a 19 handicap I really love my golf and have a 23 y old sun on a 7 handicap who plays with me every weekend.

I had a decent club fitting a few months ago and slowly the golf is getting better.

If there are guys in the Gauteng area that wants to play or wants to know more about the league feel free to contact me

Jy's `n monster met daardie drywe, Johan! Ek is baie gelukkig as ek my drywe 220 - 230m slaan.

I'm playing at Eagle Canyon tomorrow and at Randpark (Firethorn course) on Saturday. Tomorrow's game is against one of my colleagues who is currently our group's champion. He won the title at Killarney GC on 2 December last year during our annual golf day. I have challenged him for his title, which is part of a new competition that we brought in to keep the interest alive.

Hopefully I can hit the ball like I did over the last two weeks on the driving range. This will only be my 2nd and 3rd games this year, the previous one was at Umdoni Park when I shot the 82.

Speel jy nog die bane?

Deesdae sukkel ek om die 300m verby te steek? Word ek dalk oud?

Nee, jy dink aan '3'.

Hierdie is '8' wat ook oor die rivier gaan.
