Will forever be remembered as the man who claimed the winning point in Europe’s victory in The Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in 2014, sealing the all-important point with a pin-point wedge that was voted Shot of the Year. That same year he finished in a career-high fourth place in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex. Won three times on the Challenge Tour before making his European Tour breakthrough at the 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush. Secured the most lucrative win of his career at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, holding off Justin Rose and Thorbjørn Olesen to win by one shot, and secured his Ryder Cup debut with victory at the D+D Real Czech Masters.
