Biography

Played in the 2005 Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup side that narrowly lost out the USA at the Chicago Golf Club. Coached by David Leadbetter and Stuart Morgan, while his fitness regime is overseen by Stuart Fromes. Cites the Walker Cup and making the cut at The 2005 Open Championship as the highlights of his career so far, but is looking to improve on that after winning his European Tour card at the 2006 Qualifying School – Final Stage. Is a huge supporter of the Golf Foundation, a charity in Britain that looks to introduce children to the game, and believes that with the Foundation’s help, the UK’s next generation of golf stars can emerge from all different backgrounds. “Golf is difficult for kids who have a single mum living off the council struggling to pay the rent. They don’t have the means. But some will come through the Golf Foundation and it will be a new breed; different, more determined people who haven’t had everything in their lap and are prepared to work harder.”
