Just a short descriptive report on the month of February regarding the disabled golf.

I did one swing lesson with Morne Els and also did a 9 hole playing lesson to prepare him for the Interprovincial challenge that’s taking place early March 2019.

I happy to report that Morne has improved a lot in his consistency with his irons and also his driver.

I encouraged him to stay more behind his shots during the swing not forcing to come across or over the ball causing hooks or fade shape shots to his driver.

As far as the nine hole playing lesson goes I’m very impressed with the way he chip and putted and I can see he has been giving attention to this department.

With the Carpe Diem School we had the Privilege to attend the Di data at Fancourt on the First round. The kids enjoyed the environment and was really impressed with how far the guys can hit the ball. I also made them aware of how good their shortgame and putting is . They really could see the touch of the players around the green.

January was a short month and the schools only started the 9th so I did a playing lesson with Morne at Kingswood to assess his game and make notes what to improve on before the interprovincial challenge and Sa Open .

I’m glad to report give positive feedback since I last played with him he has improved his pitching and short game. We will be working on aim (he aims left of target and if it does not come back he is in trouble. Another shot will be he’s driving as he smothers the ball or doesn’t get any height on it.

With the Juniors Ive gone to Kingswood for an on course session  covering chipping and long putts controlling the distance and also the pace. The kids had to differentiate between a shorter putt and a longer putt.

Julien Jansen Working on his Putting technique

We played on course at Glenwood and we did short game coaching with the kids at Kingswood where I focuses on both techniques for Short and long putting.  Chipping and Pitching was also worked on.

Then I did one swing lesson with Morne Els and main focus in this lesson was  squaring the club up at impact and also making the angle of attack less shallow.  ( He hits down very steep causing an outside in swinpath making him it a fade )

At school Carlo Kok had 3 sessions two with the B group and one with the A –group . They mainly did Full swing.

Under the guidance of FSP coach Carlo Kok, the kids were taught the fundamentals of chipping and pitching. A vital component of this is to teach the golfers how to gauge the distance of the shots they need to hit. To this end, a bucket was placed on the green into which the golfers had to fly their balls. This is a fantastic drill to help develop the golfers feel around the greens.

“I want the kids to get a good understanding that they don’t need a lot of power for the shots around the green as they want to hit the ball as hard and far as possible”, Kok says.

Chipping the ball well is only half the battle won though ── to get up and down successfully, one needs to hole putts. Kok thus spent time teaching the golfers how to setup correctly and stroke the ball well. As is the case with chipping, feel is of the utmost importance. The golfers were thus tasked with hitting lag putts which needed to finish within a block of 4 tees.

As always, one of the big focuses of the FSP coaching is to inject an aspect of fun into the practices. Kok therefore gave the children the chance to pit their putting skills against one another in a game of putt-putt.

“At the school we also made use of the putt putt course which the kids Love as I always make a little competition. It’s always nice to help the kids and give them information and speak to them about golf. Even if they are disabled they still love to compete and learn new skills through golf.”

Thank you to Carlo for giving his time to help develop the skills of our FSP members and to the Southern Cape Golf Union for their continued support of the FSP and the SADGA.
