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. Secured his playing rights on The 2004 European Tour International Schedule with the help of a top ten finish in The 132nd Open Championship, his first appearance at a Major Championship, and a tie for fifth in the Trophée Lancôme in 2003. Victories in his homeland include the prestigious South African Tour Championship in 2003.
