South Africa (RSA)
Comes from a strong golfing background – his father, Kevin, is an experienced Sunshine Tour player and the national coach for the South African amateur junior team, while his grandfather, Sam, also played for his country. Was earmarked as a future star early in a successful amateur career – particularly in the American collegiate ranks where he was named the 2013 NCAA Freshman of the Year while representing the University of Texas. Fulfilled his early promise when he made his European Tour breakthrough early in 2016, winning the BMW SA Open in his home country. Counts Ernie Els as a close family friend and has benefitted from some advice from the four-time major winner.
