Biography

Had to endure a nerve-wracking final day at the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club, having entered the week in 12th position in the Rankings and fallen way back in the leaderboard, but clung on to his card by finishing 15th in the season-long list. Completed a rapid ascent through the Challenge Tour after he won the season-opening Barclays Kenya Open on an invite to earn a rookie campaign on Europe’s second tier. Produced a nerveless performance typical of a seasoned winner who had already notched up six victories on his native Sunshine Tour before making a crack at the European circuit. Has completed a Bachelors degree in Accounting at the University of Stellenbosch. A keen cricket fan.
