Keith Horne was born on this day in 1971, in Durban and had a successful amateur career. In 1993, Horne won a Silver Medal at the World Games in Spain. He turned professional in 1996.
After turning professional in 1996, Horne immediately joined the local Sunshine Tour. His first professional win came in 1998 at the Vodacom Series: Kwazulu Natal. After that, he had a few off-seasons until he won a few unofficial Pro-Ams in 2003. His second official win came in 2007 at the MTC Namibia PGA Championship. He won again a year later at the Nashua Golf Challenge. Horne also holds membership on the Asian Tour, where he has yet to win.
In 2010, a runner-up finish in the Joburg Open, and a top ten finish at the Singapore Open, both events which are co-sanctioned with the European Tour meant that Horne earned enough to have a full European Tour membership for 2011. In 2012 he picked up his fifth victory on the Sunshine Tour at the Telkom PGA Championship.
