Biography

A five time winner on the Sunshine Tour, including the 2007 Vodacom Origins of Golf Tour Free State, he took the second last card at the 2007 Qualifying School – Final Stage. Unable to fulfil his playing requirements in 2008 due to personal reasons and plays in 2009 on a full Medical Extension. Started playing golf at the age of eight, deciding to focus on golf over cricket and rugby when he was 14. A broken collar bone aged 18 had little effect on his rise through the amateur ranks, a rise that peaked in 1997 when he won the South African Stroke Play title, the Transvaal Amateur, the Western Province Stroke Play title, and was also an Individual winner with the South African Team. A true boxing aficionado, he is in awe of every great fighter’s dedication to the “sweet science”, and includes boxing training – including sparring – in his fitness programme.
