In their spare time

Bruce considers himself to be very much a typical South African and loves all sports either playing or watching. He’s a pretty keen and decent golfer and also has a penchant for endurance sports having completed one Ironman and has a firm eye on a second! Bruce is also a family man and enjoys getting away with his wife and young son. Living in wine country, he’s also more than happy to dine out with friends enjoying the produce of the latest grape harvests.
