Affectionately referred to as Beef, he started 2015 with a bang by finishing third in the Alfred Dunhill Championship in December, just a month after he was crowned the 2014 Challenge Tour Number One. An eighth top ten of the year at the Grand Final in Dubai confirmed his position at the head of the Rankings, capping a fine season in which he won twice, at the Scottish Hydro Challenge hosted by Macdonald Hotels and Resorts and at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge. Provided one of the most-watched moments of the 2015 season when he had a hole-in-one at the BMW PGA Championship and ran towards a friend in the crowd for a chest-bump celebration. Missed the cut in the flagship tournament but left clutching the keys to a brand new top-of-the-range BMW M4. Brought more entertainment at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in July, when he holed his second shot on the 18th hole of the third round, then mimicked the trademark sword celebration of Miguel Angel Jiménez, with whom he was playing. The wedge shot from the fairway was later voted the European Tour Shot of the Month for July. Earned a maiden European Tour campaign through the 2011 Challenge Tour Rankings, only to struggle with form and fitness for the next two seasons before bouncing back in style in 2014. Started playing golf aged four after his father, a single figure handicapper, took him to a field to hit balls and joined North Middlesex Golf Club shortly after. Climbed through the amateur ranks to represent the England Boys team, winning the Boys Internationals in 2007, before turning professional aged 20. Is an Arsenal fan and a keen follower of basketball.
