Biography

Rediscovered his very best form in 2014, first securing the coveted Players Championship on the US PGA Tour before a sensational wire-to-wire victory at the US Open Championship brought the German a second Major title. Was one of Europe’s heroes at The 2012 Ryder Cup, holing a six-foot putt on the last to defeat Steve Stricker and secure the point needed to complete a miraculous comeback and retain the Samuel Ryder Trophy. Was also part of victorious European teams at Celtic Manor in 2010, and in Gleneagles in September of this year, where he sealed his Sunday singles victory over Bubba Watson in spectacular fashion, thanks to a chip-in at the 16th. Claimed the Nedbank Golf Challenge in late 2012, putting behind him a largely frustrating season – a far cry from the previous three years when he was in contention to win The Race to Dubai. Completed that feat in 2010, the year he won four times, including his first Major at the US PGA Championship, and earned nearly €4.5million in prize money. Continued his progression in 2011, winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship for the third time in four years and reaching the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Lost to Luke Donald, but the consolation prize was reaching World Number One, a position he held for eight weeks. Claimed his first WGC title at the end of that year, scorching through the field with a stunning final round of 63 to capture the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai. Only the second German after Bernhard Langer to be European Number One, he has fulfilled the potential he showed early in his career, when he finished fourth in the 2006 Challenge Tour Rankings after playing just eight events and winning two - including on his professional debut.
