Biography

Claimed the biggest title of his career at the 2015 Alstom Open de France, winning in superb style at Le Golf National. Started the final day three shots off the lead but powered to a six under par 65, birdieing the tough par four 18th from 15 feet for good measure. That continued his affinity with France, having won twice there on the Challenge Tour in 2010 – first at the Golf Open de Lyon with a 62 on the final day and then the Golf Open du Grand Toulouse. Borrowed Branden Grace’s caddie, Shane, for the Lyon victory, and he was still on his bag five years later for the triumph in Paris. Won twice in the space of three months in 2012, first at the lucrative Ballantine’s Championship and then storming to victory in the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity in his native Austria with a stunning final round of 65. The highlight of his 2014 campaign came at the US PGA Championship, where he had the honour of playing in the last group alongside eventual winner Rory McIlroy on the final day. A closing round of 74 left him in a tie for 15th. His love of skiing could have affected his golf plans in 2003, when he broke his collarbone in an accident on the slopes, but he recovered and enjoyed a successful amateur career. Having been taught by his father, he underlined his potential by winning the Austrian Amateur Stroke Play Championship three years running from 2004, before turning professional in 2006. Shares coaches with compatriot Markus Brier.
