Biography

Made his European Tour breakthrough in June 2011 at the Saint-Omer Open presented by Neuflize OBC, where he won by an impressive seven shots at a wet and windy Aa Saint Omer Golf Club. One of only six players, out of 671 entrants, who successfully negotiated all three Stages of the 2006 European Tour Qualifying School. The London-based Australian started his bid to win a place on Tour at St Annes Old Links in England, played the Second Stage at the PGA Golf de Catalunya and then the six-round Final Stage at San Roque Club, both in Spain. Subsequently found life rather tougher on The European Tour and dropped down to the Challenge Tour but struggled to rediscover his form over the next two seasons, finishing 88th in the Rankings in 2008 and 27th in 2009. Bounced back in fine fashion in 2010 with five top ten finishes – including one as runner-up at the Kärnten Golf Open by Markus Brier Foundation – to return to The European Tour as the 15th graduate.
