All the pain was however taken away when we were invited to report on the Telkom SuperSport Shootout at the luxurious Zimbali Resort on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Arriving from Johannesburg in four layers of clothes we quickly changed to a golf shirt and shorts and enjoyed four days of balmy KZN weather. The event itself – excellent – and it was great to see leaders of industry and sports stars communicating with a common goal of raising funds for the three charities tied to this event.
Cheating at golf has again raised its ugly head and stories of players playing under their handicaps and still losing matches abound.
Unlike clubs who are understandably nervous of legal implications, a well-known golfer is threatening to name and shame both professional and amateur players around the country.
