Biography

Made a slightly sluggish start to his 2009 Challenge Tour campaign with two missed cuts, but found his form to make the cut in his next 14 events to finish the season 19th in the Rankings and secure a return to The European Tour, where his highest finish was fourth place at the 2007 Omega European Masters. Later that year he won the Qualifying School – Second Stage at Sherry Golf, before regaining his card at the Final Stage. Son of a Welsh rugby legend, Dewi Bebb, who played for Wales 34 times between 1959 and 1967, scoring 11 tries. He also toured with the British Lions in 1962 and 1966, and was joint top try scorer on the 1966 tour. Lists his father as one of his all-time heroes, along with Seve Ballesteros and Ian Woosnam from the world of golf, plus Ian Rush and Gareth Edwards from his other two sporting passions, football and rugby. Started playing golf aged 11, mainly because the Bebb family home backed on to Llantrisant Pontyclun Golf Course. Coached at Cardiff Golf Club by Terry Hansen, who also coaches Stephen Dodd. Will provide on-course commentary for S4C, the Welsh television channel, at The 2010 Ryder Cup.
