Biography

A contemporary of Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy and all-round fine sportsman, competed again on The European Tour after taking the seventh card at the 2012 Qualifying School Final Stage - his third full season at the top tier, having come through the Qualifying School in 2003 and the Challenge Tour in 2010. Claimed his second Challenge Tour title in 2013 at the Telenet Trophy as he split his time between The European Tour and the second tier. Began the latter summer playing predominantly on third tier tours across the United Kingdom, achieving great success with four wins on the 66 Pro Tour and one on the Europro Tour. Through his place at the top of the Europro Order of Merit he earned a place in the field for the English Challenge on the Challenge Tour, which he promptly won – beating rising star Tommy Fleetwood by one stroke – before adding a further five top ten finishes from his remaining ten appearances to earn promotion as the seventh graduate. Brother Chris is also a professional golfer competing on the Australasian Tour. Indeed, it was his brother and father who first introduced him to the game at the age of ten, and he turned his back on Aussie Rules Football to pursue golf. Would have considered playing tennis professionally if golf had not worked out.
