He was a key member of Durbanville Golf Club’s victorious team in both the Western Province Premier League and the Bradshaw Cup in 2017. Unfortunately an ongoing injury curtailed his hopes of a full time career as a player. Keen to commit himself to golf, Matthew successfully completed his PGA Diploma, which included a six month stint in the Pro Shop at Durbanville Golf Club.
