Biography

A remarkable return to form in 2016, where he won twice on the Challenge Tour, gave the Englishman fifth spot on the Road to Oman and a return to the European Tour. Victory at the Vierumӓki Finnish Challenge ended a four-year stint outside the winner’s circle before he went on to win the Kazakhstan Open – the biggest event of the Challenge Tour season, and his fifth career title on Europe’s top developmental tour – to seal his place in the 2017 Race to Dubai. Has previously spent four full seasons on the European Tour, coming through the Challenge Tour in 2006 – retaining his card for 2007 – and in 2013, plus a successful trip to Q-School in 2001. Comes from a strong sporting family, with his brother Josh playing for Manchester United reserves for five years and his cousin Tom Whitehouse a fellow Challenge Tour Member. Father Tim was a Conference footballer, but it was his uncle Bob who introduced him to golf at the age of six.
