Returns to the European Tour in 2016 after coming through the Challenge Tour in 2015, winning the KMPG Trophy on the way to 15th place in the Road to Oman Rankings, the last exempt spot. Also finished 15th in 2013 to earn a rookie season on the top tier, securing his graduation with tied second place in the season-ending Challenge Tour Grand Final, enduring a tense wait for it to be confirmed in the recording area. Captured his first Challenge Tour win in 2009, on home soil at the Scottish Hydro Challenge. Away from the course he enjoys spending time with his young family, as well as following his favourite football team, Arsenal. Is also a self-confessed petrol head, claiming that if he had the money he would spend more on cars than Ian Poulter.
