2020 Week 21

I hope this message finds you all well

The last 11 weeks have been pretty bizarre.

Sadly, for some people, and some families it has been very tragic, with the loss of  loved ones and/or friends. Sanne and I offer them all our sincere condolences.

For everybody the lock down has been a difficult time, with uncertainties, limited movement, almost no normal social contact and financial worries for many.

For the pro golfers it has not been easy either. Courses were closed until a couple of weeks ago and gyms were closed too. So we could not train or practice as normal. We were effectively unemployed.

Fortunately things are slowly starting to open up. I have been able to train in the gym again and have already played several practice rounds

And, at last, part of the ET schedule for the rest of the season has been published. It looks very different from the normal schedule and pretty challenging, with a lot of tournaments close together one after the other and travel restrictions still in place.

But, like all the players, I am looking forward to getting back into competition as soon as possible!

More soon, meanwhile: stay safe!

Amateur Times

Hi, I am Darius

I was born in 1989 (in Leidschendam, Netherlands) and started to play golf when I was 11 years old. My father played golf and gave me a lot of encouragement but before long I started to play better than him so he decided to stop. I had a successful junior and amateur career, which included a lot of individual success, as well as playing for the Netherlands and for Europe in some of the most prestigious amateur team events.
But I also wanted to concentrate on finishing my formal education.

In 2013 I got my Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Sports Marketing from the Johan Cruyff Institute in Amsterdam, before playing one more year as an amateur. I ended 2014 in the top 40 of the World Amateur Rankings and decided to turn pro, so I entered the Q-School of the Alps Tour, one of the 3rd tier European Satellite Tours. I came second overall and my pro career had begun.
