Enjoyed a dream start to his professional career with two wins and four more top ten finishes in his rookie season on the Challenge Tour. His first title came in the Northern Ireland Open Challenge presented by Clannah and XJET after a nerve-wracking play-off win over former Ryder Cup star Oliver Wilson, and the second title followed a fortnight later when he claimed the inaugural Kharkov Superior Cup. Took sixth place in the Challenge Tour Rankings to earn promotion for The 2014 Race to Dubai. Has been tipped for the top since winning the Royal Lytham Trophy and the St Andrews Links Trophy in 2012, the same year he reached number two in the World Amateur Ranking. Away from the course he enjoys playing tennis and supporting his favourite football team, Ajax.
