The young Dane showed steely determination to win the 2015 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, carding a final round one under par 71 at St Andrews to triumph by two strokes. It was the perfect comeback after a testing year, during which he had surgery on his wrist and struggled to rediscover the sort of form that had earned him a reputation as one of the most exciting young players in the world. In 2012, his second season on the European Tour, he captured his maiden title at the Sicilian Open with four rounds in the 60s, and missed just five cuts all year en route to 15th place in the Race to Dubai. That fulfilled the potential he showed on the Challenge Tour in 2010, when he finished third in the Rankings thanks largely to victory in The Princess in Sweden. Made his debut in the Seve Trophy in 2013, helping Continental Europe to a first victory in seven attempts, and claimed his second European Tour title at the ISPS HANDA Perth International in late 2014. Lives in London and spends time practising in Dubai. Formerly known as Jacob, but changed to use his middle name Thorbjørn as it is far less common.
