Did not win during the 2002 season but had three top ten finishes in his opening six tournaments which provided the basis for his success, including being runner-up in the Austrian Golf Open 2002 and the Volvo Finnish Open. Father Gary played on The European Tour in the 1970s and 1980s and although Gary junior was born in Wolverhampton, he is based in Germany where his father partly owned and ran a golf club and has taken out German citizenship. Played the first half of 2003 but a shoulder inury meant he did not compete again after the Nissan Irish Open in July. Will play on a medical exemption in 2004.
