Won the 2010 Portugal Masters for his third European Tour title, a fine end to a consistent year which ended with 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. 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 and is a fanatical motor racing fan who loves to race Porsches. Competed in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Australian Grand Prix GT Category.
