Biography

Since turning professional in 1989, André has been the most successful Swiss Touring Professional. He is the only Swiss to have won on European level, both on The European Tour when he captured the 1995 Air France Cannes Open and on the Challenge Tour with wins at the 1990 Neuchâtel Open, the 1992 Kenya Open and in Austria in 2008. André also is the only Swiss to have qualified and played in Majors, by participating in The Open 1994 in Turnberry and 2005 in St. Andrews. The Swiss born in South Africa from Swiss parents attended the University of Tulsa, Oklahoma, on a golf scholarship, graduating in business administration. André has represented Switzerland in the 1991 Alfred Dunhill Cup at St. Andrews and held up the Swiss flag seven times in the WGC - World Cup, most recently in 2002 in Mexico after winning the qualifying Nations Cup in Indonesia together with partner Marc Châtelain. He has been on top of the Swiss Order of Merit most years since 1989, only halted by a severe back injury in 1997 which forced a three-year lay-off. Has been focusing on the Challenge Tour since 2001 in a bid to regain his card on The European Tour. Just missed out automatic exemption in 2001 through the Challenge Tour Order of Merit, finishing a few spots out on the money list and in 2004 at the Tour School, finishing 36th. In winter, André is a regular on the Sunshine Tour.
