Biography

Otto continued his love affair with Italy when he sealed his third European Tour title, and second in the Mediterranean country, at the 71° Open D’Italia Presented by DAMIANI, where a fine second round 62 helped the South African hold off strong challenges from David Howell and Stephen Gallacher. Finished the 2014 season 46th in The Race to Dubai – his second best finish on The European Tour. Had multiple victories in South Africa before finally making his breakthrough on The European Tour in May 2008 when, just a matter of weeks after relinquishing a five-shot lead going into the final day of the Madeira Islands Open BPI – Portugal, he survived a late charge from England’s Oliver Wilson to win the Methorios Capital Italian Open by one stroke. Added a second victory three years later at the 2011 SA Open Championship. Required a Medical Extension at the end of 2002 following a back operation. Victories in his homeland include the prestigious South African Tour Championship in 2003. One of the first South Africans to work with renowned sports psychologist Jos Vanstiphout, who sadly died in December 2013.
