It has been the hardest two weeks of my life, losing my Dad SO suddenly has been just devastating. It's surreal. As I try to comprehend all of this I'm trying to focus on our happy memories with my Dad, and there are lots. He was our biggest fan and when Tjaart played in SA, within a 300km radius of home, he would be there, always punctual and ready for the first tee shot of the day and wouldn't leave until the ball had dropped on the last green. We're so happy he was able to share our win at The Lion of Africa Cape Town Open, I remember when I called him straight afterwards his words were," Tjaart is now the Lion of Cape Town", he couldn't have been prouder.
We've been showered with love and support from our beautiful families and amazing friends and for that I'll be eternally grateful - thankYOU.
Dad, we know you're still with us - and we'll continue do you proud.
I'm truly heartbroken.
LOVE YOU DAD
