Moved with his family from South Africa to Perth, Western Australia, aged 10 and became Australian Junior Champion in 2007.
Tied for third at the 2015 UBS Hong Kong Open and matched that at the following February’s ISPS HANDA Perth International, another event co-sanctioned with the European Tour.
Later in 2016 he was joint-fourth at the Australian Open, missing out on the play-off won by Jordan Spieth by only two strokes, and then finally got his hands on a trophy at the 2017 New South Wales Open, leaving the best of the rest six shots adrift.
He made his first appearance in a major at the 2018 U.S. Open, coming through the European qualifier at Walton Heath for that. After another tie for third at the 2019 Nedbank Challenge he gave his best performance on the European Tour so far this January when he finished as the closest challenger to Tyrrell Hatton at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
Joint 23rd in his first PGA Championship in May, Scrivener moved into the world’s top 100 for the first time a week later and now plays his first Open thanks to his place on this season’s European Tour ‘Race to Dubai’ table.
