Biography

Won the 2010 Portugal Masters to claim his third European Tour title, a fine end to a consistent year that ended with him occupying 21st place in The Race to Dubai, his best position since 2004. That victory also marked the first time in European Tour history that two different left-handers had won in the same season, after Phil Mickelson’s triumph at the Masters Tournament. Finished outside the top 100 on The Race to Dubai for the first time in 13 years at the end of the 2013 season, but bounced back 12 months later to claim 74th spot, thanks to a rare play-off loss, alongside Thomas Pieters, to Miguel Ángel Jiménez at the Open de España. In 1997 he was the first left-hander since 1975 to win a European Tour event, capturing the Dubai Desert Classic after a play-off with Ian Woosnam and Greg Norman. Had to wait ten years for his next victory, again winning a play-off at the 2007 BA-CA Golf Open, this time defeating Jean-François Remesy. That made it a hat-trick of professional play-off wins, following the 2004 MasterCard Masters on the PGA Tour of Australasia. Learned the game at Huntingdale, Melbourne. Attended the Victoria Institute of Sport, is a fanatical motor sport fan, and loves to race Porsches. Competed in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Australian Grand Prix GT Category.
