Ensured a return to The European Tour by winning the 2012 Qualifying School Final Stage by four shots with a 19 under par total. Lost his card in 2011 after finishing 126th in The Race to Dubai and had limited success on the Challenge Tour in 2012 before finding a rich vein of form at PGA Catalunya Resort. Also left it late in 2010, when he was right on the cusp of the top 115 heading towards the tail end of the season but ensured he kept his card in his maiden season with victory in the Vivendi Cup in Paris. That made up for the previous week when he led going into the final round of the Austrian GolfOpen, only to finish tied 20th. Two weeks after his win he led at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and finished third, en route to ending the campaign 51st in The Race to Dubai. Stepped up to The European Tour after finishing 14th in the 2009 Challenge Tour Rankings, helped by victory in the ALLIANZ Golf Open Grand Toulouse, where he shot a nine under par 63 on the final day to win by two from José-Filipe Lima. Joined three of his 2007 Walker Cup team as European Tour winners – Welshman Rhys Davies, Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Englishman David Horsey. Amateur highlights include receiving the 2004 Peter McEvoy Trophy, winning the Spanish and Welsh Amateur titles in 2007, and the Danish Amateur and the Under 21 Faldo Junior Series in 2005. His 2006 Faldo Series International Trophy win in Hong Kong was another highlight. First professional title came at the 2008 Ladbrokes Masters on the Europro Tour, and he went on to finish tenth on the Order of Merit.
