Biography

Took up golf at the age of 14 after a serious hamstring injury forced him to abandon his first sporting love – football. Proved a prodigious talent on the golf course and confirmed he has the game to succeed at the top by becoming only the fourth two-time winner on the 2004 Challenge Tour Schedule with victories in the Skandia PGA Open and the season’s penultimate event, the Donnington Grove Computacenter English Challenge Open to come home in fifth place on the Rankings. Took a few months to adapt to life on the Challenge Tour, but found his feet with a second place finish at the Ryder Cup Wales Challenge in August and never looked back, scoring his two wins and a further two top ten finishes in the remaining three months of the season.
