Dean Burmester Biography – Dean Burmester Wiki

Dean Burmester is a South African professional golfer who plays on the European Tour and Sunshine Tour. He has two European Tour wins and eight Sunshine Tour wins. Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, Dean represents South Africa in golf.

Dean grew up in Zimbabwe idolising his father, Mark, who played international cricket for Zimbabwe, to such an extent that he worked relentlessly to try to forge his own path in the cricket world.

“It’s all I wanted to be. I trained through the winter, playing cricket all the time until I was 16 years old. I got a little frustrated when I wasn’t selected for the teams I thought I should’ve been selected for, but I probably wasn’t good enough. That was a tough pill to swallow.

“Then I entered my first junior golf tournament in South Africa when I was 16 and ended up winning it. So I thought, maybe I’m not so bad and I can do this. By 18 I was No 1 in the province [Free State and Northern Cape] and playing SA Schools golf.”

Dean turned professional in 2010 and won his first professional title by four strokes in 2013. He has won eight times on the Sunshine Tour, including the 2013 Polokwane Classic, the 2014 Sun City Challenge, the 2015 Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open, the 2015 Lombard Insurance Classic, the 2015 Sun Windmill Challenge, the 2015 Vodacom Origins of Golf at Koro Creek, the 2017 Tshwane Open and the 2021 PGA Championship,

The 2017 Tshwane Open at Pretoria Country Club was a co-sanctioned Sunshine Tour and European Tour event. In May 2021, Burmester won at the Tenerife Open for his second European Tour victory.

“The reason I practise so hard is for my wife and my son. I want to give them everything they need, not only financially but in terms of values too. I pride myself on that; it comes from my parents.”
