Will play a remarkable 18th consecutive season on the European Tour in 2016 after a consistent campaign in 2015, which will perhaps be best remembered for his exploits on home soil in February. During a break from European Tour action, Green won the Oates Vic Open in his native Victoria an hour after his Norwegian fiancée Marianne Skarpnord, also a golf professional, won the women’s event. Remarkably, the couple had recently bought a house on the Thirteenth Beach complex where the tournament was held, and even more remarkably, Green had a hole-in-one albatross in the pro-am earlier in the week, holing his drive on the 391-yard par four – a shot which has more than a million views on YouTube. His last European Tour title came at the 2010 Portugal Masters, which also marked the first time in the Tour’s history that two different left-handers had won in the same season, after Phil Mickelson’s triumph at the Masters Tournament. 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.
