After recording nine runner-up finishes on The European Tour, Wilson finally became a winner at the 2014 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship following several years in the golfing wilderness. Those near-misses came between 2006 and 2009, and the Englishman earned a place in the world’s top 50, not to mention a Ryder Cup debut in 2008, along the way. However, he lost his card in 2011 after a sudden loss of form, and before his emotional victory at the Home of Golf, he was ranked outside the top 100 in the Challenge Tour Rankings and down at 792nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. A lesson from fellow European Tour player Robert Rock in Scotland unlocked something, though, and a final round 70 at St Andrews was enough to win by one from Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Richie Ramsay. Enjoyed a Ryder Cup debut to remember at 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.
