Biography

Claimed his third European Challenge Tour title in April 2003, when his eight under par total of 284 gave him a two shot victory over fellow Scot Scott Drummond and England’s Jamie Little in the Panalpina Banque Commerciale du Maroc Classic on the famous Red Course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat. First victory came in the Formby Hall Challenge in 1999 after a delayed play-off against subsequent Qualifying School winner and fellow Scot, Alastair Forsyth. Stayed in 15th place on the Challenge Tour Rankings to gain his European Tour card that year after Spain's José Manuel Lara missed an eight foot birdie putt on the final green of the First Cuba Grand Final. Finished 164th on the Volvo Order of Merit in 2000 and returned to the Challenge Tour where he won his second title in 2001, the Credit Suisse Private Banking Open. Learned the game under the guidance of the late Doug Smart, the Banchory professional who also nurtured the talent of 1999 Open Golf Champion, Paul Lawrie. Left Banchory Academy, near Aberdeen, to join the Golf Club on a Youth Training Scheme programme. Took up a golf scholarship at Lamar University in Texas, where he studied for two years. Returned to Scotland in 1991 and turned professional four years later, moving to Knowle Park in Kent where he was coached by Peter Gill. Has now moved back to his native Aberdeen.
