About RVDS

Rourke van der Spuy is a South African born professional golfer.  He started playing golf in the South African Junior Golf Foundation before going on to represent KwaZulu-Natal in both the Under (18) Provincial Team in 2006/2007 and the Under (23) Provincial Team in 2008.  In 2009, Rourke became The KwaZulu-Natal Amateur Golf Champion. Furthermore, he captained Durban High School in 2007 before obtaining a full golf scholarship in 2009 to Troy University in the USA.

After two years at Troy University, he transferred to Columbus State University to play for head coach, Mark Immelman.  During his last two years at Columbus State University, Rourke was recognised as the top golfer for the university.  During his time in America, his achievements included being selected as a two-time First Team Peach Belt Conference golfer, as well as to the 2011 South -Eastern All-Region Team. He graduated in 2013 with his BBA in Business Management, as an All-American Student Athlete.

Since turning professional in 2012, Rourke has played in over 40 events in both the United States and South Africa.  Rourke recorded his first win as a professional at the Pre-Qualifier for the Web.Com Tour Qualifying School in September 2013 and qualified for the Web.Com Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship in Missouri, where he managed to make the cut in his first start.

Rourke came tie 3rd at the 2015 Sunshine Tour Qualifying School.  He then went on to become one of the few rookies to ever win in his first year on tour, when he won the Sun Fish River Sun Challenge.  After a strong late charge to finish the year, Rourke was recognised as the 2015 Sunshine Tour Rookie of The Year and added his name to the illustrious Bobby Locke Trophy.  Rourke is currently a member of and represents Durban Country Club on Tour.

2. Always learn from my mistakes, and never be afraid of failure
3. Never stray from the morals and values I learnt from my parents
4. Be the most well-mannered person in the room at all times
5. Take the time to realize how fortunate my life really is
6. Never jump to conclusions about anyone or anything
7. Politeness goes a long way
8. And lastly, practice the things I am not good at until I am great
