Continued his impressive progression by finishing 49th on the Race to Dubai in 2014, with four top five finishes in five events, at Made in Denmark, D+D REAL Czech Masters, KLM Open and ISPS Handa Wales Open. In 2013 he offered a glimpse of his potential with a superb rookie season that included a share of sixth place in the flagship BMW PGA Championship. Took full advantage of the opportunity to play in the 2012 ALLIANZ Open Côtes d’Armor Bretagne on the Challenge Tour by winning the tournament by one shot. Until then had the lowest playing category, but ended the season clutching a European Tour card after finishing 13th in the Rankings. Turned professional in 2011 after a glittering amateur career, during which he played in three victorious Jacques Léglise Trophy teams and was part of England’s victory in the 2010 European Team Championships. Began playing golf at the age of four with his father, who runs the local clubhouse, and his brother, who is now a golf coach. Says he was always very focused and driven in becoming a professional and preferred to spend time on the practice ground rather than in the local pubs and clubs. Supports Chelsea and Reading and enjoys reading books about improving sporting performance.
