#TuksGolf: “I went to university because I see knowledge as power, and education is important.” - Nobuhle Dlamini

Posted on November 19, 2022

UP-Tuks Sportswoman of the Year 2013, Nobuhle Dlamini, became the first female professional player from her country, Eswatini when she turned pro in 2014.

Having graduated from the University of Pretoria with a BSportSci qualification, Dlamini went to the LET’s Q School and secured status then played on Tour for the coming season.

“I went to the University of Pretoria, and as soon as I graduated I went to Q School and got my card, and I’ve been playing here ever since,” she explained.

“I went to university because I see knowledge as power, and education is important. I don’t regret going to university at all, I learned a lot through the years of studying and I believe it’s a process that everybody should go through because it’s very useful for life. 

“Q School was amazing, it was really different to what I was used to because I hadn’t played a lot of international golf, all that I understood was that I was playing golf that week so that I will be able to play professionally. 

“It went really well, and I enjoyed the first time I went, coming onto Tour was also really nice and a great experience. I enjoyed it right from the start and I still love it now.”
