Biography

Produced a magnificent performance when it mattered, taking a share of fifth place in the 2012 Apulia San Domenico Grand Final to leap into the top 20 of the Challenge Tour Rankings. Was 23rd heading into the season's final event, but moved up to 15th place and grabbed a European Tour card for 2013. Described it as an emotional moment having had to deal with problems in his personal life during the previous two years, and also dedicated the performance to his mother, who was battling cancer. In the 2013 Portugal Masters he provided one of the most emotional moments of The European Tour season when, two weeks after his mother passed away, he holed a 40-foot par putt at the 18th to secure outright second place and move from 126th to 71st in The Race to Dubai, thereby securing his card for 2014. Broke down in tears on the final green and said he felt his mother over the putt in heart-rending scenes in the Algarve. Until then had spent his career playing in his native South Africa and America, before deciding to go to the European Tour Qualifying School in 2011, where he earned a full Challenge Tour category for the following season.
