David Frost


David Frost (born 11 September 1959 in Cape Town) is a South African golfer who has more than twenty professional tournament wins to his name, spread across four continents.

Frost turned professional in 1981. He scored his first professional win in his home country in 1983 and has continued to play in South Africa in the northern winter, but like other leading South African golfers he has spent far more time playing internationally. In line with many other Commonwealth golfers his first move abroad was to the European Tour and he played that tour from 1982 to 1984. From 1985 he primarily on the U.S. based PGA Tour, where he went on to win ten tournaments, the most prestigious of which was the 1989 World Series of Golf which he won by defeating Ben Crenshaw at the second playoff hole. He made the top ten on the PGA Tour money list twice, placing 9th in 1988 and 5th in 1993. By his forties he was no longer a regular contender on the tour, but in 2005 he set the all time PGA Tour 72-hole putting record with 92 putts at the MCI Heritage while finishing only tied 38th.
