Biography

Earned a Race to Dubai return in 2014 having claimed the 27th and final card at the Qualifying School Final Stage at PGA Catalunya Resort, after losing his playing rights at the end of the 2009 season. Was a nervous final round for the Scot in Spain, carding three double bogeys on the sixth day, but five birdies helped the two time European Tour winner scrape through and claim the final spot on offer. Encouraged at the age of eight by dad Alex, a retired police constable in Glasgow, he joined Ralston GC. Played amateur golf for Scotland at boys, youth and senior level. In 1999, the year after turning professional, he won the MasterCard Tour Order of Merit and ‘Tartan Tour’ Money List in Scotland before later that year becoming the second successive Scottish winner of the European Tour Qualifying School. Led the 2000 race for the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award for much of the year, but was pipped to it by Ian Poulter. A passionate Rangers FC fan and holds a season ticket at Ibrox.
