First European Tour victory came at the Dunhill championship in his native South Africa - in the second event of The 2005 European Tour International Schedule - and he came close to retaining the title when he was tied runner-up behind compatriot Ernie Els at Leopard Creek. That was one of three second places in 2006 as he finished in a career-high 18th place on the Order of Merit. Became the then 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 in 2002. Arrived at the Qualifying School as a highly promising amateur with victories in the Brabazon Trophy and Indian Amateur Open Championship and having represented South Africa in the Eisenhower Trophy in Malaysia.
