Biography

Jacques began learning his trade as a 10 year old boy out of Boschenmeer Golf Club in Paarl, and took to golf immediately. Making his way steadily through the junior ranks, he received a scholarship in 2007 to attend the USA's Oklahoma City University, from which point his game flourished. He won the 2007 Texas Intercollegiate Championship, before returning to his native South Africa the following year to conquer the local Amateur ranks. During 2008, he won both the SA Amateur Strokeplay and Matchplay, along with the Free State/Northern Cape Open. In the same year, Jacques represented South Africa at the Eisenhower Trophy in Australia and captained the SA four-man team for a once off test match against France. Jacques was later named Golf Digest and Compleat Golfer's amateur of the year for 2008, and decided it was time to turn pro. Since gaining his card for the Sunshine Tour in 2009, Jacques has enjoyed steady finishes in the order of merit, never finishing outside the Top 60 and recording career earnings in excess of R1 million. Jacques already has numerous Top 5 finishes to his name, and his maiden victory is surely not far away. In his spare time, you're likely to see Jacques working out at the gym or playing Xbox, and listening to David Guetta. His dream is to play at Augusta, and like many, considers Ernie Els and Tiger Woods to be his role models.
