That win was his first on the European Tour which helped him to his best Order of Merit finish of 17th in 2008. James turned professional in 1988 and is currently a member of the European Tour and the Sunshine Tour. He has also competed on the Asian Tour, where he collected four tournament victories.
Victory at the Sunshine Tour’s Vodacom Championship in February 2008 lifted Kingston into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time.
Kingston secured his second European tour win in 2009 with a playoff triumph against Anders Hansen at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Championship in Cologne.
The South African is also responsible for one of the luckiest holes in one in history, recording an ace on the 15th hole at the 2002 Dunhill Championships after his tee shot hit a tree, took a lucky bounce and rolled in the hole.
James Kingston recorded his maiden Legends Tour title by holding off the chasing pack to claim the Sergio Melpignano Senior Italian Open by one stroke at San Domenico Golf.
