Biography

Won the 2017 BMW SA Open hosted by City of Ekurhuleni just 84 days after he thought he had lost his European Tour card. He missed a par putt on the 18th green at the Portugal Masters in October 2016 to lose his playing privileges by just 100 euros but was handed a reprieve when Patrick Reed opted not to play the Final Series. He made the very most of his second chance at Glendower Golf Club, overcoming Rory McIlroy on the third extra hole after an enthralling closing round. Looked to be in danger of enduring a tricky finish to the season in 2015, but secured second place in the Porsche European Open to rise from 127th in the Race to Dubai to 66th, then made every cut from then until the end of the campaign. Came agonisingly close to securing a second European Tour title in the 2014 Omega European Masters, but a wayward tee shot and the resulting bogey at the first play-off hole in Crans-sur-Sierre meant he lost out to American David Lipsky. Ample consolation came in the form of a BMW i8, his reward for a hole-in-one on the 11th hole in the third round. Recorded a golfing first when his mother caddied for him at the 2000 Masters, but after the highs of playing Augusta National came the lows of working in a factory in Hartlepool as he struggled to make ends meet over the winter months, having earned his first card at the Qualifying School. However, he regained his playing rights in 2004 via the Challenge Tour and has never looked back, becoming one of the Tour’s most consistent performers. Won his maiden title at the Open de France ALSTOM in 2007, a season which yielded €1,209,673 in prize money to banish memories of his stint in the factory.
