Biography

Was involved in one of the talking points of 2013 when he contested a nine-hole sudden-death play-off against Raphaël Jacquelin for the Open de España, which also featured Felipe Aguilar for three holes. Ultimately lost out to the Frenchman, but the performance was the foundation of an impressive rookie season. Hails from Düsseldorf, the same city as Martin Kaymer and, like the two-time Major winner, won on the Challenge Tour early in his career, claiming his maiden title at the Gujarat Kensville Challenge, the first event of the 2012 season. Showed nerves of steel to see off home favourite Rahil Gangjee at the first extra hole, making amends for his play-off defeat to compatriot Nicolas Meitinger in the 2011 ALLIANZ Challenge de France. It marked a successful maiden voyage to India for the 20 year old, who was picked to compete in the 2010 Bonallack Trophy in Bangalore, before the event was cancelled due to the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud.
