Jurrian van der Vaart

Born in Alpen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands on December 22nd, 1985. Soon, we moved to Almelo, where I grew up with my two siblings Annemarijne and Leander. I played tennis, soccer and golf at a young age, and finally stuck with golf after my 12th birthday. Throughout my teens I dedicated myself to both school and golf, and continued to do so when I started college in the US at Virginia Tech in 2005.

At Virginia Tech I studied Environmental Science and competed on the golf team till 2008, after which I turned professional.

Currently I am active on both the European Tour and the European Challenge Tour, looking to claim my spot at the highest level.

Besides golf I am still active in the environmental field, with focus on habitat development and architecture. I also offer workshops and clinics about course management and performance coaching on occasion to club teams in the Netherlands.

 A bit of range work checking my tempo and transition; lost some of the sync in the wind on the course today. Some treatment after to keep the legs fresh, and a good nights sleep!
