    During the lockdown, we invite guests to call into our Facebook Live sessions – here we speak to Grant Veenstra, a former Sunshine Tour pro turned coach to some of the country’s best.

    Veenstra starts with a story about playing in The Open, joining Tom Watson for a practise round before knowing it was time to move on to the range (two famous Proteas cricket players helped spur him along).

    The Ebotse Links-based coach shares his insight into working with the likes of Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Jayden Schaper, Dean Burmester and others as well as runs us through his approach to coaching.

    In an informative discussion, he reveals his plans while working with players, talks about the experience at the Dunhill Links and ends off with a tale about Mark Boucher on the first tee at The Links at Fancourt.
