After recording nine second place finishes on The European Tour, Wilson picked up an emotional maiden victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in 2014, to help reignite his career and ensure a first appearance at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, for four years. The Englishman represented Europe at the 2008 Ryder Cup and recorded his nine runner-up finishes between 2006 and 2009, to reach the top 50 on The Official World Golf Ranking. However, a dramatic loss of form saw him lose his card at the end of 2012, and ahead of his win in Scotland Wilson was ranked outside the top 100 on The Challenge Tour and 792nd in the world. Has some real match play & team golf pedigree, having capped a superb 2008 with a Ryder Cup debut to remember in Valhalla, where he came back from four down to defeat Anthony Kim and Phil Mickelson 2 and 1 in the second day foursomes when playing with Henrik Stenson. Made his debut in the winning Great Britain and Ireland Seve Trophy team in 2007 where he won twice in the company of fellow Englishman Simon Dyson. Repeated that feat in the 2009 Vivendi Trophy with Seve Ballesteros. Was also a member of the victorious Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team in 2003 before he turned professional later that year. On a charitable front, he has pledged his support to Dare UK, the British arm of a worldwide anti-drugs educational programme, and he is also a Youth Ambassador for the Golf Foundation.
