Made a dramatic start to the 2014 season, losing a play-off for the Hong Kong Open to Miguel Angel Jiménez having chipped in for birdie on the final hole to move into a tie for the lead. The previous month he had claimed the tenth card at the Qualifying School – his fourth successful visit in ten years – and travelled straight from Spain to Australia to represent Wales in the World Cup of Golf, where in his final round he had one of the most bizarre level par 72s ever recorded. After starting with two birdies at Royal Melbourne, he had a hole-in-one on the short third before carding an 11 on the following hole en route to finishing tied eighth. The Hong Kong near-miss was not enough for him to retain his card in 2014 and after playing mostly on the Challenge Tour in 2015, he was back at the Qualifying School again, this time walking away with the 13th card. Began playing at the age of ten at Mountain Ash GC in South Wales with his dad, David. Could have been a footballer as had trials at 16 with Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Luton, but chose a career in golf, starting a four year scholarship at West Florida University in 1998. Part of the winning Walker Cup side in 2003.
