David Frost

Introduced to golf at age 14, when he would caddie for his dad and play a few holes. Played in his first South African Amateur when he was 18. At 20, he won the Western Province match-play title in Cape Town as an amateur in 1980. While still an amateur, he lost in the finals of the South African Match Play Championship. Also played in the British Amateur that year.
Turned professional in 1981 and ventured to the United States to play on the mini-tours, but didn't find much success. Went back to South Africa and finished second in the South African Order of Merit in the 1982-1983 season. Played on the European Tour in 1983 and 1984, winning the Cannes Open in 1984, thanks to two 20-footers on the final two holes. Planned to play in Europe for four years, but was so successful in his first two that he moved to get his PGA Tour card for the 1985 season. Was winless in his first three years on tour, but twice lost in playoffs, to Tom Kite in 1986 Western Open and to Seve Ballesteros in the 1988 Westchester Classic. Broke through in 1988, winning the Southern Open in a playoff over Bob Tway and then the Tucson Open a month later. That same week, he won the unofficial Merrill Lynch Shoot-out Finals. Ended the 1988 season with 11 top-10 finishes in 25 starts.
Won the 1989 NEC World Series of Golf, and in 1990 won the USF&G Classic in rather spectacular fashion. Needing a par on the final hole to tie Greg Norman, he hit his second shot in a greenside bunker, some 50 feet from the hole. From there, he holed his shot for a birdie and a one-stroke win. Since then his best year was 1993 when he won twice and passed $1 million in earnings. Dropped back to 20th on the money list in 1994, 50th in 1995, 54th in 1996, 50th in 1997 and 148th in 1998.
A full-time member of the PGA Tour from 1985 to 2005, he played in 531 events, made 333 cuts and posted 84 top-10 finishes with 13 runner-up finishes. From 1987 to 1996, he ranked among the top 25 players in the world every year but one and won nine of his 10 PGA Tour titles and nine of his 12 international events during that span.
Prepared for the Champions Tour by playing on the European Tour in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Has a 300-acre estate in South Africa with a 100-acre vineyard.
2010 Notes: Broke through for his first PGA Tour Champions victory when he lapped the field by seven strokes at the 3M Championship in August. Closed his rookie year on a high note when he finished T-3 at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Earned $194,500, which pushed him past the $1 million mark in season earnings, with $1,186,992.
2011 Notes: Did not earn a victory in his second full PGA Tour Champions season, but was in contention on the last day several times and managed to register seven overall top 10s among his 23 starts. Best finish was T-2nd at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic. Also defended his MTB Tour Championship title at the end of the year and finished second to Tom Lehman in Mauritius.
2012 Notes: Enjoyed his finest year since joining the Tour in late 2009. Recorded multiple victories in a season for the first time since 1993 on the PGA Tour and had his highest finish on the money list (ninth) in his three full-time seasons on the circuit. The first of his two wins came in April when he teamed with Michael Allen to win the Legends Division at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf. Late in the year, he won the AT&T Championship in San Antonio, making a 10-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to defeat Bernhard Langer. Closed out his competitive season by claiming the MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius on the European Senior Tour in December. Survived a double bogey and triple bogey in his final round en route to a one-stroke win over Barry Lane and Peter Fowler.
2013 Notes: Had his best season on the PGA Tour Champions, with more than $1.8 million in earnings and a fourth-place finish in the final Charles Schwab Cup standings. Was among the top three six times in 25 appearances and won twice, including his first major win, the Regions Tradition.
2014 Notes: Went winless for the first time since 2011 and was the only player with more than seven figures in single-season earnings who did not have a victory. Joined Russ Cochran as the only other player to appear in all 26 events. Still managed to record nine top 10s, with five of those performances coming in the latter third of the season. Had his best outing of the season in July when he finished T-3 in the U.S. Senior Open. Ended the year 13th on the money list and in the Schwab Rankings.
2015 Notes: Won for the first time in almost two years at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic, his sixth career PGA Tour Champions victory. Despite incurring a one-stroke penalty on the 17th green when he dropped his ball and it moved his coin, he sank a key 6-foot par putt on the last hole to preserve a one-stroke margin over Tom Lehman and Kevin Sutherland. Also had a runner-up at the Encompass Championship, finishing three shots back of winner Jerry Smith. Frost also had a T-3 at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, finishing four back of winner Jeff Maggert. Was 19th on the money list and 23rd in the Schwab rankings.
2016 Notes: Teamed with Roger Chapman to finish 2nd to Michael Allen and Woody Austin at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. Chapman's 25-foot chip on the final hole for birdie lipped out moments before Allen sank an 18-foot birdie putt for the win. Had a nice showing in his next start, finishing T-2nd at the Insperity Invitational, four behind Jesper Parnevik. Other top-tens: was T-7th at the Senior PGA Championship, T-5th at the 3M Championship, T-9th at the U.S. Senior Open, 6th at the Nature Valley First tee and 9th at the Toshiba Classic. In 25 starts was 13th on the money list and 22nd on the Schwab Rankings.
2017 Notes: Qualified for the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Champions for the eighth consecutive year and surpassed $9 million in career earnings on PGA Tour Champions Tour. In 24 starts finished five times in the top-ten, best finish was T-3rd at the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. Followed with another top-10 finish a week later when he teamed with Roger Chapman to finish T-8th at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. Was T-6th at the Boeing Classic, T-10th at the Pure Insurance Championship and closed out his season with a T-4th at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Was 29th on the money list and 15th in Schwab Rankings.
2018 Notes: Played in 25 PGA Tour Champions events with three top-ten finishes. Was T-6th at the Toshiba Classic and T-5th at the Insperity Invitational. Also, T-10th at the Shaw Charity Classic. Qualified for the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Champions for the eighth consecutive year and finished 44th. Surpassed $9 million in career earnings on PGA Tour Champions.
