Biography

Completed a remarkable return to The Race to Dubai ahead of the 2015 season after an exemplary turn on the Challenge Tour en route to 12th place in the Rankings from just 15 starts. Did everything but win on the second tier in 2014, finishing runner-up three times, the most important of which came in his final tournament of the season. Lost in a play-off to Ricardo Gouveia at the EMC Golf Challenge Open to secure his place on The European Tour for the following season, an achievement made all the more significant by the fact that he could not play in the four-tournament season-ending Final Swing in China, Oman and Dubai due to his fear of flying. The phobia had briefly forced him to give up the game in 2010, during which he worked as a player manager and coach, but returned shortly after. Earned a return to the Challenge Tour in 2014 after topping the Pro Golf Tour in his native Germany, having previously played a rookie season on The European Tour in 2011. Graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2008, before turning professional a year later.
