Biography

Planned to turn professional aged 18 but broke his right hand after falling off a banana boat. After complications with the surgery he stopped playing golf, and instead started studying economics and sports marketing at the Johan Cruyff Institute before taking a job at Nike's European headquarters. Returned to golf in 2015 where after turning professional he topped the Order of Merit on the satellite Alps Tour. Enjoyed a successful rookie season on the Challenge Tour in 2016, and joined forces with fellow countryman Joost Luiten later that year at the World Cup of Golf.
