Nick Herbert started his golf career in Johannesburg, at around ten years of age, hitting balls in a park with his mom and dad. He hit his mom on the nose with his third back swing, #SorryMum, but was hooked on golf instantly.
His family moved to Bryanston in 1986 and he joined the Bryanston Country Club in 1996, where he remained a member for twenty years.
Accolades in his golf career include:
- Best handicap of scratch in 2005
- Best gross score of 68
- Two holes in one
- Played 83 local courses
Nick’s golf bucket list is still very long but his top three are to get an Albatross, play Pebble Beach and go to the US Masters.
Nick’s love affair with the game of golf has led him to develop a golf putting mat called 1PuttZone and he is busy developing a mobile application to help golfers track and improve their putting performance.
