RISING STAR | Let’s meet Rhuart (Rhu) Kotze

Rhu was born on the 9th of March 2016. From baby stage, he was always very interested in golf and he loved watching it on TV.
When he started walking, we bought him a swimming snorkel, which he used as a golf club. We just knew that he was a natural and so it all began. 
We enrolled him for lessons at the beginning of 2020 when he was almost 4 years old, but unfortunately, Covid messed up the plans, however, that did not stop him. We set up a driving net in the garden and kept him busy for almost a year with online training videos from his Coach, Dieter Snyders from Bridge the Gap Golf.
This year we started with lessons again. Dieter has done some serious magic with Rhu and we love to see the progress that he is making.
We are also very grateful to our friend Bjorn Roberts, who is a very serious golfer, and plays and takes Rhu for his lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We make an effort to play nine holes at least twice a month and Rhu just loves this sport. In our house, he is the one pressing for us to go and play as Dad is not close to his talent when it comes to the game of golf.
