Profile

David Smail (born 20 May 1970) is a professional golfer from New Zealand who has forged a brilliant career in Japan for more than a decade.
 
Throughout his career Smail has won five titles on the Japan Tour and two titles on the PGA Tour of Australasia - the 2001 New Zealand Open and the Canon Challenge. 
 
He has forged a career unlike any other Kiwi and in 2014 will play in Japan for the 17th consecutive year.
 
 
Smail was not at his best in 2014 but record seven top-20 finishes to keep his card and his unbelievable streak in Japan going.
 
He came close to winning on the OneAsia Tour in March of 2012 when he finished runner-up by one shot, with fellow Kiwi Michael Long in a share of third place.
 
Smail boasts a career that is among the most consistent in all of the current New Zealand professionals in the game.
