Having moved from his native South African to attend Oklahoma University, Aswegen has pre dominantly played his golf on the various American mini tours and main tours as opposed to following the route most South African golfers take by honing their skills on the European Tour. He still enjoys returning to his homeland whenever he gets the chance. Aswegen became a US citizen in 2013 and is currently happily married to his wife Cristin who he says is his biggest supporter.
When he turned pro in 2004, Aswegen spent a number of years playing on the various mini tours that are found around the United States. Up until the 2011 season, he had only managed to qualify for a handful of Web.com Tour events each year. Aswegen had his first full season on the Web.com Tour in 2011 and managed to finish a respectable 68th on the money list. He spent another couple of years on the Tour before winning his PGA Tour card for 2014 when he finished 24th in the Web.com Tour Finals.
Aswegen had his debut season on the PGA Tour in 2014, managing to make 15 out of 25 cuts and had four top 25 finishes. He finished the season 144th on the money list so the South African had to go back to the Web.com Tour Finals. He managed to finish in a tie for 7th thus obtaining a PGA Tour card for the 2015 season. The start of 2015 hasn’t been kind to Aswegen having missed 10 out of 13 cuts with a best finish being a tie for 29th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
