"I want the spectators to feel the adrenaline!"

1st February 2016.- Last year you finished second in the LDET Order of Merit winning 2 events (Estonia & The Masters)... What are your goals for this season?

There are some fantastic new venues on the circuit and I'll turn up ready to showcase the sport to these countries where Golf and Long Driving especially are still quite undeveloped. I want the spectators to feel the adrenaline, to see how much fun we as long drivers are having and to get them to participate in the sport. On a personal front, recovering from surgery and keeping fit would be a major achievement in itself. Building on existing friendships and creating new ones are definitely major goals.

This year the LDET circuit will visit new countries and spectacular resorts like Fairmont St. Andrews, Zala Springs Golf Resort (one of the most amazing resorts in Europe) in Hungary, Diamond Country Golf in Austria... How do you see the LDET circuit actually and in the nearest future?

This being my third year on the LDET tour I can honestly say that the tour is improving year-on. We as the players certainly appreciate the new countries added to the calendar and we enjoy travelling the continent showcasing our talents. We urge the crowds in each country to come out in BIG numbers and support us. We feed off your energy! It would be wonderful to see LDET grow beyond European borders.

First words before to start the 2014 season:

February 2014.- 1) As a new player of the LDET circuit, what do you expect for the 2014 season?
First and most important - I expect to enjoy myself together with all the other competitors and I look forward to learn from the guys who have been around for a long time. This will be my first season participating in this form of the sport and I'm just happy to be part of the mix. I look forward to compete against the others on deck and to make a whole bunch of new friends off deck.

2) What does it mean for you to be part of the tour?

Being the only South African and only one of two international competitors it's a real privilege and I'm grateful for the warm welcome which I have received thus far from the managing panel. I would like to be as good an ambassador for my country and who knows; perhaps I could play a role in promoting the sport even further into the Middle East where I live.
