Had the option to pursue a career in tennis – he once played against Andy Murray – but at the age of 13 decided against joining the national academy on the basis that it would have been too intense for someone so young. Instead opted for golf, and developed at his own pace under the guidance of the English Golf Union. Won the South African Amateur Championship in 2010, a trip he saved up for by working at the nine-hole course across the road from his home, and his parents matched it. Later that year he qualified for The Open Championship and found himself rubbing shoulders with his idols Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh in the players’ lounge. After winning the 2011 Spanish Amateur Championship he decided to turn professional, but struggled with the step up and spent the next few seasons playing lower level tours. Found form at just the right time in 2015, however, winning the Qualifying School First Stage at Frilford Heath, coming fourth at the Second Stage and then taking the 20th card at the Final Stage, enduring a nerve-wracking final round to secure a place on the 2016 Race to Dubai. Said he would celebrate by watching his rugby team, Bath, play against Leinster, before flying to South Africa a week later to begin his rookie season.
