Irvin learnt the game of golf from a tender age of 11 while serving as a caddie at the Soweto Country Club. Inspired by the sport, Irvin fell in love with the game of golf & since then it was Irvin’s dream to become a professional golfer. He played in his first Inter-Provincial U23 event in 1997 & successfully retained his position in the team for a further two years.
Irvin gained valuable experience as an amateur & decided to turn Pro in 2000. He has been a Sunshine Tour member ever since.
A top 10 finish early in his career, served to highlight his true potential. He went on to play in the Nelson Mandela Invitational in 2003 & happened to win the Vusi Ngubeni Qualifying School in the same year. Irvin enjoyed a fruitful 2012 on the Big Easy Tour, where he finished in the Top 30 on the Order of Merit. This earned him his playing rights for the following year.
With Irvin’s limited success on the tour over the last couple of years, his golfing talent has gone unnoticed. Despite lacking a golfing support structure that most Professional Golfers are accustomed to, Irvin has not lost faith, nor sight of his dream to be a successful South African golfing professional to whom many other young South Africans may aspire.
Irvin is based in Gauteng. Click here for Irvin’s full profile.
