Biography

Durban-born Warren Abery played golf for the first time at the age of 13, and, under the guidance of his father, began to forge a very successful amateur career. Having successfully defended his title at the Natal Amateur in 1995, Warren went on to win the South African Amateur that same year. After representing his country at the Eisenhower Trophy in 1996, he decided to turn pro.

Warren joined the Tour in 1997, and needed little more than a year to record his maiden victory. Since then, the Ballito, Simbithi CC resident has claimed a further six wins on tour, and has amassed nearly R6,5 million in career prize money. After struggling with a back injury for the best part of two years, Warren finished third on the Sunshine Tour money list in 2005, and seventh the following year.He has found himself in at least the top 40 ever since, and is one of the most successful professionals that South Africa has produced. He also gained his European Tour card in 2006 and 2012.

Away from the course, Warren is a husband and recently a father of two. He loves fishing, but is also a passionate rugby and cricket fan. And, according to this prodigiously talented golfer, the most likely way to win him over would be take him on holiday to a beach resort, and cook him some chicken for dinner.
