I matriculated in 2015 and then dedicated myself ever since to improving my golf skills as I have a dream to play professional tournament golf. In 2016 I travelled to Switzerland and Germany where I competed in three tournaments. Of the three events I finished top 15 twice; 11th in the German Junior Masters and T12th in the Olivier Barras in Switzerland. I came home to compete in the men’s Premier Inter Provincial Tournament representing Southern Cape and it was very satisfying to be part of the winning team. I maintained my good form for the remainder of the year and won the Eastern Province Stroke Play in November 2016 plus a few Southern Cape Union events including George Open.
I went to Europe in June/July of 2017 and competed in the Irish Amateur and the Lytham trophy plus a couple of events in Switzerland. Highlights of 2017 was making the finals of the SA Amateur at Humewood Golf Club and successfully defending my Eastern Province Stroke Play title. I won 2 Southern Cape events during the year; the Oubaai Club Championships and the Kingswood Club Championships. I represented the Southern Cape in the men’s Premier Inter Provincial Tournament where the team finished 2nd.
I reached my highest amateur ranking early in 2018 where I was ranked 11th in South African Amateur Golf. I successfully defended my Oubaai Club Championship, enjoyed a top 5 finish in a Big Easy event and had several top 10 positions in IGT events. I once again represented the Southern Cape in the men’s Premier Inter Provincial Tournament where the team finished runner up for the 2nd year in a row.
