Biography

Finished in a career best 26th in The Race to Dubai rankings in 2014, a season in which the Scotsman showed off the sort of form many believed he has always been capable of. Recorded an impressive victory at the inaugural Made in Denmark, where he overcame some tough conditions and Bradley Dredge to triumph. That was European Tour victory number three for Warren and helped to make up for the disappointment of the previous year, when he came agonisingly close to winning the 2013 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, only to be defeated by Matteo Manassero in a three-man play-off. Also enjoyed a steady 2013 season, but things have not always been plain sailing for Warren. He lost his Tour card in 2010, but finished tied fifth in the 2011 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship – on a sponsor’s invite – to help finish 114th in The Race to Dubai and secure his playing rights for 2012, an opportunity he grabbed with both hands to finish 55th in The Race to Dubai. Enjoyed a superb first full season on The European Tour in 2006, when he captured his maiden title at the Scandinavian Masters on his way to winning the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year. Might have thought it would have been hard to top that, but succeeded in 2007 thanks to two glorious weekends. The first came in September, when he defeated Simon Wakefield in a play-off to win the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles; and the second came in November when, in partnership with Colin Montgomerie, he won the Mission Hills World Cup, beating the United States in a play-off to register Scotland’s first success in the event. As an amateur he holed the winning putt at the 2001 Walker Cup at Sea Island, Georgia, and spent three years adjusting to life in the professional ranks before teaming up with the legendary late Bob Torrance – a switch which helped him become the Challenge Tour’s top player in 2005.
