Arrived as a serious Major contender in 2015 with a series of superb displays on the global stage. After winning his fifth and sixth titles at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in December 2014 and the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in January 2015, he finished tied fourth at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, two shots behind winner Jordan Spieth. Carried that form to the US PGA Championship in August, where he took third place, helped by a third round 64, and in November finished fifth at the WGC-HSBC Champions. Continued in the same vein in 2016, successfully defending the Qatar Masters having entered the week off the back of three consecutive top five finishes. Enjoyed a season beyond his wildest dreams in 2012, winning four times en route to taking sixth place in the Race to Dubai, having earned his card at the 2011 Qualifying School Final Stage. Heralds from a golfing family, as he is related to Michiel Bothma and Darren Fichardt. His technique has drawn praise from the legendary Gary Player. Came through the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation, which recognises and helps nurture youngsters with golfing talent. Became the first International player in Presidents Cup history to win all five matches in 2015.
