Caylum Boon

Caylum Boon had only recently returned from the South African Junior National Order of Merit tournaments and in his final round at Pollak Park in Springs he had shot an excellent 2 under par 70.  He followed that up with his career best round of 69 in the first 18 holes at Oubaai, an outstanding effort.  His 69 was the only sub-70 score posted at Oubaai over the 36 holes of the tournament.  In the afternoon Caylum shot 75 to finish at level par for the day.  He lost the title by a single stroke to Nicholas Mitchell, the Southern Cape’s current number one amateur golfer.

Lessons from Caylum’s Progress
Caylum’s recent improvement is symptomatic of most of the students at the KeNako Academy.  He has been attending KeNako Academy for 2 years and the results of his training program (technical, physical and mental) are now starting to show.  In the year 2013 Caylum grew 10cm in height and such growth spurts impact the angle of the swing and a variety of other elements linked to their golf games.  He is no doubt still growing, having only recently turned 16.

One of the advantages of the KeNako Academy program is that every student is personally monitored as they go through puberty – should they ultimately choose to make golf their career choice they will be well equipped to deal with the rigours of being a professional sportsman or woman.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
