When you meet Andre the first time you can’t help but to notice his energetic & charismatic vibe, however don’t let his easy manner fool you. Under his easy going veneer is a focused individual who does not only aspire to be a golf professional, but wants to be extraordinary in his field. Andre wants to follow in the footsteps of Rory McIlroy, whom he believes has great work ethic and he appreciates the legend’s respect towards others.
Andre joined KeNako Academy at the beginning of 2014 ranked No. 89 in South Africa and as one of KeNako Academy’s first two School Leaver students. Within 18 months he had achieved a top 4 SA ranking and he was selected to represent South Africa. Golf Digest ranked Andre the top amateur in South Africa for the year 2015.
In 2017 Andre finally turned pro when he received his Sunshine Tour Playing card by finishing 8th in the Sunshine Tour Qualifying School. With so many talented players it is definitely not easy for a young professional to make his mark on the Sunshine Tour, however Andre is mentally tough and this provides him with the upper hand when competing in tournaments. Since receiving his card in 2017 Andre already achieved multiple top 10 finishes and it is only a question of time before he will claim his 1st Sunshine Tour Title.
With the Masters Tournament being one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world, together with the historic sentiment attached to Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta is the golf course André would feel most privileged to play. His favorite local golf course is Fancourt’s Montagu Course – he enjoys the layout and feels that one is rewarded for quality shots made on this course.
Andre is based in Southern Cape. Click here for Andre’s full profile.
