  • Wayne Westner

He won the World Cup of Golf for South Africa in 1996 alongside Ernie Els.

Westner's wife, Alison, and the couple's adult children locked themselves in a bathroom after he broke into the house in Pennington, South Africa, according to the Mirror.

The two-tour European Tour was found with a gunshot wound to his head by police at the home of his estranged wife in Pennington, a town about 70 kilometres south of Durban.

The police's Thulane Zwane says they received a call of a hostage situation at the home.

"He allegedly wanted to see his wife and thereafter he allegedly shot himself", South African Police Service Lieutenant Colonel Thulane Zwane told Eyewitness News. He won 14 events across his professional career.

Born in Johannesburg, he won twice on the European Tour, including the 1993 Dubai Desert Classic, and also topped the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit in 1995/96.

He stopped playing professionally in 1998 because of an injury.

Frost, who posted pictures of himself and United States president-elect Donald Trump enjoying a round of golf on New Year's Day at the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, later commented that Westner had contacted him two weeks ago asking for help with his golf machine, Instant Golfer. "Great memories thank you my friend", Els said on Twitter. He tore ankle ligaments in a fall of more than six feet when a railway sleeper crumbled under him as he played in the Madeira Islands Open.

He worked with some of the world's top golf coaches, including David Leadbetter, Denis Pugh, Simon Holmes and Bob Torrance.
