Picked up the 18th European Tour card on offer at the 2014 Qualifying School Final Stage in swashbuckling style when he climbed 31 places on the final day courtesy of a stunning five under front nine and a six under par round. Had entered Second Stage in confident form having earned a top 15 finish in the ISPS HANDA Perth International two weeks before. Had his coach and mentor from a young age, Gary Colquhoun, on the bag in both Perth and Catalunya. Was born in Cape Town and spent the first five years of his life there, before moving to Zimbabwe at the age of five and later moving to Perth. Was inspired by former European Tour winner and club mate at Mandurah Country Club, Jarred Moseley, to target a career in Europe after several years playing on the Australian circuit. Enjoyed a successful amateur career in his home country, winning the Australian Junior Championship in 2007, to put his name alongside those of Jason Day and Adam Scott in the process. Enjoys surfing in his free time.
