Cites his performance at the 2011 Kazakhstan Open on the Challenge Tour as a turning point in his career. After a first-round 74, he carded scores of 66, 68, 68 to finish third – his best performance and by far the biggest pay cheque, €26,000, of his life. Took 34th place in the Rankings and then came through the Qualifying School Final Stage, taking the 15th card. Was in contention to win going into the final round at PGA Catalunya Resort, bit stuttered to a five over par 77 to slip down the leaderboard. Started playing golf aged three and was always intent on completing his education before turning professional. Decided against a scholarship at an American college as he felt joining the paid ranks as soon as possible would be of more benefit. Joined the EPD Tour in 2007 before gaining promotion through the order of merit to the Challenge Tour in 2009. Describes himself as an “activities person” and enjoys going cycling, playing beach volleyball and hanging out with friends when he is off the golf course. Says his golf-playing parents and coach are the biggest influences of his career.
