Will attempt to overcome his fear of flying in order to make the most of his first European Tour season in 2011 after gaining the sixth card at the Qualifying School, posting a superb final round 65. Attended the University of South Carolina in the United States, graduating in 2008. Turned professional in early 2009 and nearly followed countryman Martin Kaymer’s feat of winning on his Challenge Tour debut, when he lost to Lee James in a play-off for the Allianz Open Côtes d'Armor Bretagne. Quit professional golf at the start of 2010 after developing a sudden and inexplicable fear of flying. Worked as a sports manager/coach in Germany for a few months but decided to resume his career, playing only in tournaments he could reach by car or train. Is seeing a psychologist in order of overcome his phobia. Played amateur golf alongside Kaymer, whom he will join on The Race to Dubai in 2011.
