Biography

Born in Mansfield, he played college golf at Augusta State University. He played in the victorio us 2003 Walker Cup team, turned professional in 2003 and graduated from the Challenge Tour a year later. After recording nine runner-up finishes on the European Tour, Wilson finally became a winner at the 2014 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship following several years in the golfing wilderness. Those near-misses came between 2006 and 2009, and the Englishman earned a place in the world’s top 50, not to mention a Ryder Cup debut in 2008, along the way. Won his first title in four years at the 2018 Swedish Challenge hosted by Robert Karlsson before claiming his second Challenge Tour title of the season at the Monaghan Irish Challenge.
