Ondrej had a fairytale 2020 as he won the Road to Mallorca on the Challenge Tour. He almost gave up the game a few years ago and credits his wife as the inspiration to keep going. Wins at the Andalucia Challenge de Espana and the Challenge Tour Grand Final were enough to see him come out Challenge Tour number one, despite only making five starts.
He'll play on the European Tour in 2021, a prospect that would have seemed unimaginable only 12 months ago!
Ondrej turns 30 in August 2021.

2020 Challenge Tour Grand Final
"Four years ago, when I met my wife, my life just turned around. I was close to stopping playing, I wasn’t going to play anymore. With her and with the girls at home, it just turned around. It’s not even my win, it’s mostly her win. She gives me the strength, especially mentally, to hold it together.
When I chose not to play the second event in Cádiz, I was getting messages asking why I wasn’t playing. I just said I needed to relax my head a little bit because the Grand Final is the most important thing. I went back home, spent time with the family, flew out here and look where I’m standing now.”
