Heinrich Bruiners- A Positive Start to 2013

Any tour professional will tell you that one of the toughest tournaments they ever have to play in is the tour school. Success and you have secured the right to compete and possibly earn a living; failure and you have to wait another year to try and win your playing privileges. Fun and enjoyment are to large extent absent – pressure and stress is the order of the day where good physical, mental and technical preparation are a must to meet the challenge of this type of tournament.

Heinrich Bruiners

Heinrich Bruiners

For the past year a young professional by the name of Heinrich Bruiners has worked with the KeNako team in George. Heinrich’s year started in earnest from 8 – 12 January 2013, when he played the Vuzi Ngubeni Tour School at Observatory Golf Club in Johannesburg. 140 Players competed for just 15 cards and Heinrich managed to secure his playing privileges for the 2013 Sunshine Tour by finishing 2nd with rounds of 68, 66, 73 and 70.

A wonderful achievement for this very personable young man who has battled back to health after a terrible, career threatening accident. His work with the KeNako team this past year has seen Heinrich improve his game holistically, with focus on his physical recovery linked to his technical programme. Heinrich’s successful return to form is a tribute to his application and his hard work. Heinrich sees KeNako’s Head Coach Roger Wessels twice a week when he is home in George and KeNako’s resident Biokineticist Jan Fourie has given him a strict exercise program to follow; relating to strength training, core training and cardio. Heinrich trains regularly in KeNako’s private gym and he is able to complete an extended cardio training programme when not in the gym at KeNako.

Besides Roger’s technical expertise, Heinrich gains enormously from Roger’s wealth of playing experience. When Roger retired from the European Tour in 2003 he had been a tour professional for 20 years. This allows Roger to talk about situations that can and do arise in tournaments and this gives Heinrich an edge with his preparation and focus for tournament golf.

They have a great working relationship and Roger sees no reason why this talented young professional should not continue improving and go on to achieve the goals he has set himself for 2013. Heinrich’s next tournament is the Telkom PGA Pro-am on the 21st January and everyone at KeNako wishes him a very successful year.
