Biography

Christiaan is a representative of the Western Cape's King David Country Club, but was born and raised in the Strand region of the Cape. 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 only had to wait two years for his maiden Sunshine Tour win as he clinched the 2009 Coca Cola Charity Championship. In 2012, he proved this was no fluke as he won the Investec Royal Swazi Open. In his time on tour, Christiaan has more than 30 top 10 finishes to his credit and has amassed over R2 million in prize money, firmly establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with.
