Retief Goosen

From Academic Kids

Retief Goosen (born February 3, 1969 in Pietersburg (now Polokwane), South Africa) is a professional golfer.

Goosen's amateur career was briefly interrupted when he was struck by lightning at the age of 15. He turned professional in 1990, following a win in the South African Amateur Championship of the same year. His main achievements since have been two US Open wins, in 2001 and 2004, and heading the PGA European Tour Order of Merit (money list) in 2001 and 2002.

Since 1995, Goosen has been one of the most consistent players in the world - he's won internationally every year since 1995, and on the PGA TOUR every year since 2001. He is known for his extremely calm demeanor - a trait that has earned him the nickname "The Iceman" on the US PGA TOUR .
