Started the 2014 campaign in fine fashion by winning the Alfred Dunhill Championship for the second successive season, and the third time overall. Took the title by a mere four shots on this occasion – the year before, the winning margin had been 12 strokes. Six on his nine European Tour victories have now come on home soil. Highlight of his career came at the Masters Tournament 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.
