Earned his European Tour card at the first attempt after capturing the 29th card at the Qualifying School Final Stage in 2005. Took up the game at the age of 13 at Woodcote Park GC, Surrey, because his father played and grew up absorbing as much as he could from Nick Faldo and Greg Norman instruction books and videos. Captivated by all sports, his brother, Martin, played tennis at England Under 18 level. Kieron also played but focused on golf after suffering knee problems. An avid supported of Crystal Palace FC, he have been coached by former European Tour player Jeremy Bennett for the last four years.
