Biography

Saved the best until last in 2011, winning the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai in thrilling fashion. Leading by one from Paul Lawrie on the 72nd hole, he ripped his second shot on the par five to 40ft and holed the monster eagle putt 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. Was a very different story in 2012, when he had to settle for 73rd place in The Race to Dubai, and he slipped even further down the Money List after an injury-interrupted season in 2013. His first victory on The European Tour came in his debut appearance as a full Member, at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Standing at six feet three inches tall, he is one of the longest hitters on Tour and topped the Driving Distance Category in the Genworth Financial Statistics 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.
