Fancourt’s Mark Fensham has been a journeyman on tour since 2010 and is the premium gentleman. With finishes as high as second place at Big Easy Houghton, Fensham heads to the Tour Championship ready to claim top honours.
The 30-year-old has picked up 12 top-10 results over three seasons on the Big Easy Tour and heads to the season finale ranked 19th on the Order of Merit.
Fensham has campaigned on the development tour since its inception in 2011 and has a reputation for keeping a cool temper. That calmness has helped him to grab five money finishes on the 2013 Big Easy Tour, and his rank of 19th in earnings is no surprise.
He represented South Africa at both under-15 and under-18 levels, but waited until 2011 to turn professional. Success at the Tour Championship will take cool nerves, something Fensham has. And wisdom is on his side.
