Did not quite hit the heights of previous seasons in 2015, but a steady finish guaranteed a fifth consecutive season on the European Tour in 2016. Accrued just over €113,000 in his final five events, with just under half that coming from the lucrative British Masters supported by Sky Sports, where he was tied 17th. Displayed fine short game prowess in 2014, finishing with the joint lowest putts per round in the season-long statistics and topping the sand saves category. Has won four times on the European Tour, the most recent coming at the 2013 Africa Open, where he won by two shots from compatriot Jaco Van Zyl and Frenchman Grégory Bourdy. Was his second win in eight months following his success in the 2012 SAINT-OMER OPEN presented by Neuflize OBC, having waited eight years since the last one, the 2003 Qatar Masters. There he beat fellow South African James Kingston and credited the help of his wife Natasha, a trained sports psychologist. Two years before that, had made the most of his opportunity on the European Tour when he captured the 2001 Sao Paulo Brazil Open to earn a two year exemption. Winner of the 1999/2000 Sunshine Tour Order of Merit and partner to Retief Goosen in representing South Africa at the WGC – World Cup that year.
