Recorded three top ten finishes in 2014 – the best of which was third in the Volvo China Open – to end the season in 79th place in the Race to Dubai. Has won six European Tour titles, the last coming in the final event of the 2011 season, when he captured the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai in thrilling fashion. Leading by one from Paul Lawrie on the 72nd hole, he found the green of the par five with his second shot and holed the subsequent eagle putt from 40 feet to seal the finest win of his career. That was his second victory of the season in the emirate – following his Omega Dubai Desert Classic triumph, where he had a hole-in-one in the final round – and he finished the season a career-best sixth in the Race to Dubai. His first victory on the European Tour came in his debut appearance as a full Member, at the 2007 Alfred Dunhill Championship. Standing at 6ft 3in tall, he is one of the longest hitters on Tour and topped the Driving Distance Category in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and 2011. Coached by former Ryder Cup player and four-time European Tour champion José Rivero whom he cites as one of the biggest influences on his career.
