Christiaan has been a successful professional on the Sunshine Tour for 16 years. He was born and raised in the Strand.
He progressed solidly as an amateur and began to forge a notable career for himself. In 2006, he was rewarded for his consistent golf and selected for South Africa to compete at the Eisenhower Trophy. The following year, Christiaan took the decision to turn pro, and it has paid off richly for him. He finished 62nd on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit in his first year on tour, and has never been outside the top 40 in the years since. Christiaan has won three times on tour and has more than 30 top 10 finishes to his credit.
Christiaan has a wife and twin daughters who he would like to spend more time at home with so he has decided to join the ranks of the PGA Coaching division as he slowly winds down on tour.
He brings with him a wealth of wisdom and experience as a player and is an asset to our coaching team.
