Biography

Enjoyed career-changing success in the 2013 ISPS HANDA Perth International, winning the title to earn exemption on The European Tour until the end of 2015. Was one of three players who had earned a place in the tournament from his position in the PGA Tour of Australasia's Tier 2 Money List for 2012, but will compete in some of the most lucrative events in golf in 2014 thanks to his play-off defeat of Englishman Ross Fisher. Turned professional in April 2011 and in December that year he finished 16th in the PGA Tour of Australasia qualifying school, winning an exemption for 2012. Before joining the paid ranks, he had two spells in 2010 as the world number one amateur after four wins including the 2010 Amateur Championship, where he beat Scotsman James Byrne in the final to become the first Asian player to take the title. That year he also won the silver medal in The Open Championship, finishing tied 14th.
