Biography

One of the most consistent performers on The European Tour in recent years, Bernd enjoyed a superb 2012 season landing his first two European Tour titles in the space of three months - first winning the lucrative Ballantine’s Championship and then storming to victory in the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity in his native Austria with a stunning final round 65. Finished that season 22nd in the Race to Dubai standings, before enjoying another solid year in 2013. Came close to winning twice in 2014, finishing tied second at the Maybank Malaysian Open and provided another good showing for the home fans at the Lyoness Open, racking up another runner-up finish. Wiesberger also had the honour of playing in the last group alongside eventual winner Rory McIlroy on the final day of the US PGA Championship. A final round 74 saw the Austrian eventually finish in a tie for 15th. Played his first season on The European Tour in 2009 after coming through the Qualifying School, but was back on the Challenge Tour in 2010. Won the ALLIANZ Golf Open de Lyon that year thanks to a course record 62 on the final day, and credited the help of his caddie, Shane, who he had borrowed from friend Branden Grace after the South African missed the cut. Later won the ALLIANZ Golf Open du Grand Toulouse and finished fifth in the Rankings. His love of skiing almost marred his career in 2003, when he broke his collarbone in an accident on the slopes, but he recovered and enjoyed a successful amateur career. Having been taught by his father, he underlined his potential by winning the Austrian Amateur Stroke Play Championship three years running from 2004, before turning professional in 2006. Occasionally has his younger brother, Niki, on the bag, and shares coaches with compatriot Markus Brier.
