Continued his domination of the Alfred Dunhill Championship early in the 2016 season, winning for a fourth time since 2004. Has also finished runner-up four times in the event he won by a whopping 12 strokes in 2013. Was back in the winner’s circle less than three months later at the Tshwane Open, meaning eight of his 11 European Tour victories have come on home soil. The highlight of his career came at the Masters in 2011, when he capitalised on Rory McIlroy’s collapse on the final day to win by two and don the green jacket 50 years after compatriot Gary Player became the first overseas golfer to do so. Only the second player to win three consecutive Sunshine Tour Order of Merit titles between 2005 and 2007, he continued a fine family tradition of golfers as his father, George, was a useful amateur before turning professional and his brother, Attie, who has caddied for his older sibling on occasions, is also making a name for himself on the South African circuit. Became the then third youngest player to secure his European Tour playing privileges through the Qualifying School when, at the age of 18 years and 81 days, he claimed 24th card in 2002 after a promising amateur career.
