Biography

After recording nine second place finishes on The European Tour, Wilson picked up an emotional maiden victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in 2014 to help reignite his career and ensure a first appearance in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai for four years. The Englishman recorded nine runner-up finishes between 2006 and 2009, reaching the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking along the way. But a sudden and dramatic loss of form saw him lose his card at the end of 2011, and before his win at the ‘Home of Golf’ Wilson was ranked outside the top 100 on the Challenge Tour Rankings and 792nd in the world. Has shown real match play prowess throughout his career, having capped a superb 2008 season with a Ryder Cup debut to remember in Valhalla, where he and partner Henrik Stenson came back from four down to defeat Anthony Kim and Phil Mickelson 2 and 1 in the second day foursomes. Made his debut in the triumphant Great Britain and Ireland Seve Trophy team in 2007, winning twice in the company of fellow Englishman Simon Dyson. Repeated that feat in the 2009 Seve Trophy. Was also a member of the victorious Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team in 2003, before he turned professional later that year. On a charitable front, he has pledged his support to Dare UK, the British arm of a worldwide anti-drugs educational programme, and is also a Youth Ambassador for the Golf Foundation.
