Would probably name Johannesburg as his favourite city after claiming his first two European Tour titles there in space of eight weeks in early 2015. First he triumphed at the South African Open Championship hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni in January, beating home favourite Charl Schwartzel in a play-off with a brilliant birdie from ten feet after a sublime approach from the rough. Doubled his haul at the beginning of March when he won by two strokes at the Joburg Open thanks to a final round 66. Will remember 2014 for the hole-in-one at the KLM Open which won him a trip to space, and his rise to the top level of the game was equally meteoric. Turned professional in 2011 after representing Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, where he won both his foursomes matches. At the end of that year he earned a debut campaign on The European Tour by taking the third card at the Qualifying School Final Stage, having successfully negotiated the Second Stage the week before. Was back at the Qualifying School Final Stage in 2012 after finishing 145th in The Race to Dubai, and again took the third card at the end of a steady week. Won titles across the globe in a stellar amateur career, including in Argentina, Australia and at the Scottish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship. Is close friends with Steve Webster, having been born and raised in the same town of Nuneaton, and cites their fellow Midlands golfer Lee Westwood as his chief inspiration.
