Biography

The Welshman will forever be remembered as the man who claimed the winning point in Europe’s victory in The 2014 Ryder Cup, hitting a sublime nine iron to within inches of the flag on the 15th to defeat Keegan Bradley 4&3 in the singles. Had secured his place in Paul McGinley’s team with victory in the D+D REAL Czech Masters in August, adding to fine performances earlier in the season in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and the WGC-Cadillac Championship, both times finishing tied second. Landed the biggest win of his career at the 2013 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, holding off Justin Rose and Thorbjørn Olesen to win by one shot. The Abu Dhabi triumph came only six months after he broke his European Tour duck with victory in the 2012 Irish Open, where amid scenes reminiscent of a Major Championship, he fired a stunning 66 to win by four strokes at Royal Portrush. Progressed from the Challenge Tour in 2001 via second place in the Rankings and enjoyed a promising rookie season. Helped Great Britain and Ireland to second spot in the Eisenhower Trophy in 2000, and showed an affinity for the team format in the professional arena too, representing Great Britain and Ireland in the Seve Trophy in 2011 and 2013.
