Enjoyed a promising rookie season on The European Tour in 2014, finishing 83rd on The Race to Dubai. Took a two shot lead into the final round of the Open de España but lost to home favourite Migel Angel Jiménez in a play-off. Long tipped as a top prospect for the future, he progressed through all three stages of the 2013 Qualifying School, taking the 20th card at the Final Stage at PGA Catalunya Resort to join compatriot and Ryder Cup star Nicolas Colsaerts on The European Tour. Turned professional in June 2013 after a celebrated amateur college career in America, where he overcame the likes of US PGA Tour winner Jordan Spieth and former world amateur number one Patrick Cantlay to win the NCAA Division I Golf Championship in his sophomore year at the University of Illinois. Started playing golf at the same time as the rest of his family after playing on holiday in South Africa aged five. Enjoys snowboarding in his spare time.
