Biography

Michiel Bothma ignited an interest in the game when he had to ride his bike through a local golf club on his was to school in Pretoria. After repeated trips, he found himself spending more time at the golf club than in the classroom focusing on his studies. At the age of 14 he realised that, with a lot of perseverance, he could play golf for a living for the rest of his life. His hard work paid off as he moved up through the then Northern Transvaal provincial sides representing his province at both u23 and senior level. Once he turning pro in 1993, Michiel struggled on tour not finishing inside the top-50 of the order of merit until the 2002/2003 season. That season could be considered as his breakthrough season where he won his first professional tournament, the Telkom PGA Championship in a playoff against fellow South African Mark Murless. He has only finished outside the top-50 once since that elusive first win and went on to win the same event again in 2010. Since then then he hasn't looked back and continued following his dream of being a professional golfer. He has aspirations of playing on the European Tour and has attempted numerous times to get full playing rights on the European Tour through Q-School and the European Tour Challenge Tour (where he the Barclays Kenya Open in 2011).
