As the seasons change so do my travel arrangements. I have really enjoyed my last 7 months in SA & have started to find some form over the last couple of months.
I started working with my new coach Quintin van der Berg from the Etienne Oliver Golf Academy at Steenberg Golf Course in March earlier this year. Since working with Quintin these are the results I have had:
- Made 6 Cuts in a row
- Shot my lowest round ever as a professional (62 -11 at the Zambia Sugar Open)
- 2 Top 10 finishes including a 9th at the Zambia Sugar Open & 3rd in my latest event the Vodacom Origins of Golf at Langebaan
I’m very excited to move forward with working with Quintin & I must mention how great GolfLAB in CT is has been as well. Thanks Guys.
I’ll be in the USA for the next 2months & I will be Qualifying for 3 PGA Tour Events
- Travels Championship, Cromwell, CT
- Barbasol Champonship, Auburn, AL
- Quicken Loans National, Gainsville, VA
I’ll then be back to the Sunshine Tour for the Vodacom Origins event at San Lameer, Durban in late August.

How I got here:
This Summer has been a totally new experience for me. The decision for me to enter the PGA Tour Canada Q School was back in March at the Telkom PGA Championship in South Africa. I was sitting there with my dad & American friend Brandon Detweiler & made the decision to come over here and give it a go!
I have played 10 events in 10 different cities including the RBC Canadian Open. I have played some very solid golf while up here and currently sit with a 70.79 Stoke average and in 48th Position on the Money List.
Whats at stake this week?
I’m currently sitting at 48th on the Money List – Top 60 keep their cards for 2014 so thats wrapped up.
Top 20 get exempt to 2nd Stage of Web.com Q School – I Need to finish 2nd to wrap that up…
Top 10 get exempt to Final Stage of Web.com Q School – I need to Win !

Sunshine Tour wrap up…
I have played 9events this season on the Sunshine Tour. It wasn’t my best start missing two of the Big Co-Sanctioned event cuts by 1shot. These events could have really changed my season completely but there is not point living in the past & I’ll be back for the 3 European Tour events at the end of the year!
My game is on the up…I have made 6 of my last 7 cuts and really looking forward to taking my game to the PGA Tour Canada Tour.
