Having impressed in his rookie season on the European Tour in 2014, he won twice in consecutive appearances in 2015, first at the D+D REAL Czech Masters in August and then a fortnight later at the KLM Open. In the Czech Republic, he shrugged off a two-shot penalty in the third round when he hit the wrong ball to ultimately finish three strokes clear of Pelle Edberg. His family had travelled 850km overnight by road from Belgium to watch the final round, and their presence inspired him to close out victory with a three under par 69. Had to come from behind in the Netherlands, where he overcame a much stronger field. Was four strokes back at the start of the last day and looked to be heading into a play-off after a five under par 65, but his rival Lee Slattery missed a three-foot par putt at the last to hand the Belgian the title. He produced a brilliant finish to win his third European Tour title at the 2016 Made in Denmark, sinking three birdie putts on the final three holes to secure the victory, one shot from his closest rival in Welshman Bradley Dredge. A second place finish the week earlier at the D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague, and fourth at the Olympic Men's Golf Competition in Rio de Janeiro earned the young Belgian one of 2016 Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke’s wildcard picks. He did not disappoint at Hazeltine, playing every match, finishing 4-1-0, to become the first European rookie to earn four points, and also the first since Larry Nelson in 1979 to be the first rookie to be outright top points scorer on either side. Long tipped as one of the stars of the future, he came through all three stages of the 2013 Qualifying School, taking the 20th card at the Final Stage. After his education at the Top Sport School Golf of the Golf Association Flanders (Belgium) where he first met his current coach Pete Cowen, he had a celebrated amateur college career in America, where he overcame Major Champion Jordan Spieth and former world amateur number one Patrick Cantlay to win the NCAA Division I Golf Championship in his sophomore year at the University of Illinois. Started playing golf at the same time as the rest of his family aged five after his parents played on holiday in South Africa.
