Biography

Lindani grew up in the village of Nomgoma in Northern Kwazulu Natal, and his first exposure to the game of golf came as a caddy at Beachwood GC when he was 9 years old. He used to watch his brother, Mandla, who, together with his friends, would use sticks as golf clubs and hit bottles in the neighbouring soccer fields. Lindani immediately knew it was the game for him, and began to immerse himself in the sport as much as he could. Without the assistance of formal coaching, Lindani had no choice but to develop his own game. However, he quickly made his mark on the amateur scene, and represented the Presidents Team at the 1996 and 1997 Inter-provincials. He received his Natal provincial colours in 1997 as well, and went on to win both the Natal Strokeplay and Matchplay titles that same year. He again represented his province the following year, before turning pro in 1999. Lindani acquired his Sunshine Tour card in 2000, and a year later made history by becoming the first black golfer in almost a decade to win on the Sunshine Tour, as he claimed victory in the 2001 Western Cape Classic. He remained incredibly consistent in the years that followed, but had to wait nearly 8 years for his next win, which came in the 2009 Highveld Classic. He has retained his card every year since 2000, and with career earnings in excess of R1.2 million, the best may be yet to come from this Greyville resident. His dream fourball would be to play with Tim Clark, Justin Leonard and Luke Donald, and he hopes to one day tee it up at St Andrews in the British Open. Lindani is also a proud father, and has 4 children to keep him busy in his spare time. He is also a massive fan of R + B and Reggae, and prides himself on his Athletic ability.
