Player Notes

Part of an impressive group of young players to have come out of South Africa in recent years. He captured his first victory on The European Tour International Schedule-the Dunhill championship, in his native country, at the end of 2004. First hit the headlines when he finished joint third in his national Open-the South African Airways Open-in what was only his third European Tour event. The previous year he demonstrated his huge potential when he finished tied 15th in the same event whilst still an amateur. Became the third youngest player to secure his European Tour card through the Qualifying School when, at the age of 18 years and 81 days, he claimed 24th place at Emporda and Pals Golf Clubs in Spain in 2002. Arrived at the Qualifying School as a highly promising amateur with victories in the Brabazon Trophy and Indian Amateur Championship and having represented South Africa in the Eisenhower Trophy in Malaysia.
