Biography

Clinched his maiden victory in only the second appearance of his first full season on the Challenge Tour when he romped to a seven shot victory in the II Club Colombia Masters at the Country Club de Bogotá in April 2008. Came agonisingly close to doubling his tally on three separate occasions: first when losing out to England’s David Horsey by one shot at the Telenet Trophy; then when he was defeated by Klas Eriksson in a play-off at the Trophée du Golf Club de Genève before he again missed out by one shot two weeks later at the ECCO Tour Championship. Those performances meant he finished 15th in the Rankings, earning graduation to The European Tour for the 2009 season, but he lost his card by finishing 182nd in The Race to Dubai and was back on the Challenge Tour in 2010 and 2011. Had limited success, but came through the Second and Final Stages of the 2011 Qualifying School to take the 26th card and earn another shot at the big time.
