Rode the wave of Australian success in 2016 to claim the Maybank Championship Malaysia, winning by two shots from Soomin Lee and Miguel Tabuena. That added to the triumphs of his compatriots Marc Leishman, Nathan Holman, and Adam Scott, Scott Hend and Jason Day soon followed suit on the European Tour. The win in Kuala Lumpur helped banish the frustrations caused by a hand injury, that forced him to miss most of the 2014 campaign. His last European Tour win came in 2010 at the Ballantine’s Championship in Korea. Was an emotional victory because a year before he had travelled to Jeju Island to play in the tournament but in doing so missed his uncle’s funeral. The absence had played on his mind ever since that week and it was no surprise to whose memory he dedicated his victory 12 months later. Came close to adding a third title in 2012 but lost on the fourth hole of a play-off to Danny Willett in the BMW International Open. Also took a share of second place in the Omega European Masters en route to finishing a career-best 25th in the Race to Dubai. Made his breakthrough in 2003 at the dual-ranking BMW Russian Open, beating Austria’s Martin Wiegele in a play-off at Le Meridien Moscow Country Club, thus guaranteeing his playing privileges on the European Tour for 2004. His brother Adam also played on the Asian Tour.
