Biography

Holds a unique collection of New Zealand titles (U-18, U-21, Amateur and Open Championships) and Australasian Tour record of 18 consecutive cuts in a season (1996). Called a penalty stroke on himself while challenging Ernie Els for Johnnie Walker Classic in 1997. The Kiwi was addressing the ball to attempt a birdie putt on the final day and spotted that it moved a tiny fraction. No one else noticed. Two putted for bogey after the penalty and finished one behind Els. "When it happens you've got to be honest with yourself and own up" he said. Joined European Tour as affiliate member and his performances for the rest of 1997 earned him full membership.
