Biography

Enjoyed a season beyond his wildest dreams in 2012, winning four times en route to finishing in sixth place in The Race to Dubai, having earned his card at the 2011 Qualifying School Final Stage. Rediscovered that fine form early in the 2015 season, winning the Alfred Dunhill Championship on home soil by a whopping seven shots just before Christmas and triumphing again in January at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, holding off Marc Warren to win by one stroke. Had his first brush with Major Championship contention when he shared the lead heading into the final round of the 2015 US Open at Chambers Bay, but a one over par 71 left him tied fourth, two shots behind winner Jordan Spieth. Heralds from a golfing family, as he is related to Michiel Bothma and Darren Fichardt. His technique has drawn praise from the legendary Gary Player, who knows a thing or two about the game, having accrued more than 100 titles around the world. Came through the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation, which recognises and helps nurture youngsters with golfing talent.
