I started playing golf with my mother at the age of 14, in Zambia. In 1996 and 2008, I won the Zambian Amateur and in 1996 was a member of the Zambian National Golf Team. In 1997, I left Zambia and headed to the United States for university where I was a NCAA All American the only year I played. After graduation, I became a professional golfer until an injury while qualifying for the European Tour sidelined my dreams. I have had an accomplished playing career, having played professionally on the Hooters Tour in the US, the Sunshine Tour in Africa and the EPD Tour in Germany."
