By now you may have heard of Christiaan Bezuidenhout. With his quick ascent to the top 40 players in the world and his upcoming appearance in The Masters, we wanted to let him introduce himself to the Fairway & Greene community.
"My name is Christiaan Bezuidenhout. You can call me ‘CBez’. I’m 26 years of age and originally from Delmas in South Africa, residing in Florida at the moment while I focus on the PGA TOUR.
As a teenager I enjoyed four years as a member of the Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation; it taught me a lot and gave me some incredible playing opportunities.
Winning the South African Open last year is the highliht of my career so far. It was an unreal feeling. It’s a dream for any player to win their national open.
This will be my second appearance at The Masters. I made my debut here in November last year. It’ll be amazing to see the course this time in the Spring, obviously its traditional slot in the calendar, with all the spectacular flowers in bloom.
I’m privileged to have learned a lot in my last few years on TOUR. For me, it’s important that I always focus and work hard, while remaining humble, and that I keep calm calm during the difficult times and enjoy the good times.
As a professional athlete, obviously you want to look good but also feel good. That’s why I’m happy to partner with Fairway & Greene. All the apparel I’m wearing at this week’s Masters is from their new spring collection."
