Biography

Two US Open Championship victories, in 2001 at Southern Hills and 2004 at Shinnecock Hills, have secured Goosen’s position among the golfing elite. In between those two victories, he became the first European to win The European Tour’s Money List in successive seasons (2001-2002). In addition to his Major wins, Goosen has captured 12 European Tour titles in a glittering career. He established the Retief Goosen Golf Academy, whose objectives are to promote golf in the Polokwane area and Limpopo province, from which he hails. Away from the fairways, the South African launched The Retief Goosen Charitable Foundation, which was set up to promote, increase awareness of, and raise money for those charities which are close to his and his family’s hearts. Other interests include his award-winning The Goose wine range, which is handcrafted in high altitude vineyards on the northern slopes of the Outeniqua Mountains, in the heart of the famous Garden Route.
