#1000 REA­SONS TO LOVE GOLF

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life -

Nick Her­bert, a mem­ber at Bryanston Coun­try Club in Gaut­eng, has pub­lished a “dif­fer­ent” kind of golf book. He lists 1000 golf spe­cific mo­ments that draw peo­ple to the game. It’s like read­ing a Twit­ter ac­count, and it’s a book to glance at rather than read in one sit­ting. A few words on each rea­son, with a clever hash­tag. An ex­am­ple which golfers will iden­tify with: No 583. Hit­ting off AstroTurf like a king only to hit ev­ery shot fat on the course. #ILikeGrass. Or, No 659, Los­ing three Pro V1s in three holes or less. #Wal­letAt­tack. The 216page paper­back sells for R150.

Her­bert is also the in­ven­tor of a train­ing aid called 1Puttzone, which he is about to launch on the re­tail mar­ket for R200 (1puttzone.com). It’s a mat you place on the prac­tice putting green, and helps for tar­get vi­su­al­i­sa­tion, plus stroke cal­i­bra­tion in terms of back­swing path and length.
