Having impressed in his rookie season on The European Tour in 2014, he won twice in two appearances the following year, first at the D+D REAL Czech Masters in August and then a fortnight later at the KLM Open. In the Czech Republic, he shrugged off a two-shot penalty in the third round when he hit the wrong ball to ultimately finish three strokes clear of Pelle Edberg. His family had travelled 850km overnight by road from Belgium to be present for the final round, and their presence inspired him to close our victory with a three under par 69. Had to come from behind in the Netherlands, where he overcame a much stronger field. Was four strokes back at the start of the last day and looked to be heading into a play-off after a five under par 65, but his rival Lee Slattery missed a three-foot par putt at the last to hand the Belgian the title. Long tipped as one of the stars of the future, he came through all three stages of the 2013 Qualifying School, taking the 20th card at the Final Stage. After his education at the Top Sport School Golf of the Golf Association Flanders (Belgium) where he first met his current coach Pete Cowen, he had a celebrated amateur college career in America, where he overcame Major Champion 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 aged five after his parents played on holiday in South Africa.
