My first post of the year and apologies that this is a little belated but I hope that you have all had a great holiday season and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2014 to you and your families.
Iíve already played my first 2 events of the year, the first being the Sony Open in Hawaii, and the family and I enjoyed a fantastic holiday in Maui the week before the Sony where we spent a lot of time on the beautiful beaches and just generally enjoying family time before another busy year on Tour.
Great news in from my Academy in Polokwane regarding two of our members..
Current Springbok (National colours) and Academy member CJ Du Plessis as part of the SA Team has just finished playing the Zone VI Championships at Lilongwe Golf Club, Malawi, where SA beat Namibia and Malawi confidently. CJ has also just been chosen as part of the 6 man SA Team to play a test series against The Scottish Golf Union's Men's Squad at the end of May. They will also partake in the Carrick Neill Scottish Strokeplay Champs, the St.Andrews Links Trophy, as well as the British Amateur Champs.
Also, Academy member and 15 year old Hennie Du Plessis has also just been selected for the under 18 SA Amateur team thereby collecting his Springbok colours in golf. This is the second school child and Academy member to have achieved the Springbok Colours in the last 2 years.

Goose Wines - Flying High
Goose Wine started in 2007, the wine is from a farm nestled in the picturesque Langkloof valley between Oudtshoorn and Uniondale. A century ago the farm was called "Ganzekraal", named after the wild geese which flew down to rest in the cattleand sheep enclosures, and a nice fit for Reitief, who is popularly known as "Goose" on the world golf circuit.
The Story - The name on the Farm's Title Deed is 'GANZERKRAAL' which means 'GOOSE CLOSURE or ENCLAVE'.
