Biography

Finally made the step up to The European Tour by claiming the fourth card at the Qualifying School Final Stage in 2014. Saw the event as a last chance saloon, having entered the week poised to accept a winter job as a postman had he not qualified on his tenth attempt. Could barely hold back the tears after securing a place on The 2015 Race to Dubai, something he had spent years dreaming would happen. The son of a professional footballer, he graduated with a degree in sport science in 2000 before improving his handicap from two to plus three and making the England squad. Turned professional at the age of 25, and completed his PGA training before deciding to pursue a playing career. Won the PGA National Assistants Championship in his first year as a professional, a victory which gained him entry to the 2005 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club.
