The South African team completed a clean sweep of most events on the 1976 Globe Outdoor Bowls Tournament. The yard bowlers from South Africa had been denied further possibilities to earn medals because of the Showing off boycott of South Africa through the apartheid era. Sixteen years later on he won the triples sterling silver medal and fours bronze medal on the 1992 World Outdoor Bowls Tournament in Worthing accompanied by another bronze on the 1996 World Outdoor Bowls Tournament in Adelaide. He also won a sterling silver on the 2002 Manchester.
