Biography

Has finished second nine times on The European Tour, including the HSBC Champions (where he lost a play-off to Sergio Garcia) and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in 2009 but didn’t manage to make that long-awaited breakthrough in 2010 where he notched up half a dozen top ten finishes. Capped a superb 2008 with a Ryder Cup debut to remember in Valhalla, coming back from four down to defeat Anthony Kim and Phil Mickelson 2 and 1 in the second day foursomes when playing with Henrik Stenson. Has come close to his European Tour breakthrough several times, finishing runner up four times in 2008 including in a play-off with Miguel Angel Jiménez at the BMW PGA Championship. 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. 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.
