Investec bring golfers and cricketers together
May 23, 2012

Investec, the specialist bank and asset manager, have brought together England cricketers Stuart Broad and Steven Finn with former Masters Champion, Charl Schwartzel, for a golf lesson with a difference.  Investec, title sponsors of Test Cricket, provided the two England Cricketers with a chance to perfect their swing, under the expert eye of Charl, also sponsored by Investec.

Both Charl and the England cricket team have enjoyed incredible success over the last few years with Charl winning golf's ultimate prize at the Augusta National and England pressing on from their 2011 Ashes victory to become the number one Test side in the world.

Charl, who is in England for the BMW PGA Championships at Wentworth, gave the keen golfers a master-class at Brocket Hall Golf Club in Hertfordshire.

World No. 15, Charl Schwartzel said:

"I have always been a big test cricket fan and am very much looking forward to the Proteas coming to England later in the summer for the Investec Te sts. It was great to meet the guys and I was very impressed with their golf although not surprised by their ball striking as they're used to hitting balls coming at 90mph!"

England's Stuart Broad commented:

"Finny and I love golf and jumped at the chance to have a lesson with a Masters Champion. Charl was great in breaking down some of the more technical aspects of golf and gave us a few tips to get our handicaps down. The psychological aspects of our sports are quite similar in terms of having to cope with phases of relative quiet set between periods of highly intense action, and it was really interesting listening to Charl's thoughts on how he manages that aspect of his game. We all agreed though that whatever the sport, the most important thing is to relax and watch that ball!"
