Dean Burmester has sporting blood in his family – his father Mark was an elite cricket player and represented Zimbabwe in international competitions, while his mother Michelle was a top-notch golfer who owns the women’s course record at their home club. Burmester followed his mother’s footsteps into golf and has posted 9 wins since turning pro in 2010 before joining LIV Golf. He won his first individual LIV Golf League title at LIV Golf Miami in 2024. Born in Zimbabwe, the big-hitting Burmester represents South Africa and is right at home as a member of Louis Oosthuizen’s all-South African Stinger GC.
