Captured European Tour title number four at the ISPS Handa Wales Open. Had hopes of making the European Ryder Cup team that year but ultimately came up just short, having spent many months in the automatic qualifying places. Thrilled the home crowds by winning the KLM Open in 2013, beating Miguel Angel Jiménez in a play-off to become the first home winner of the Dutch Open in ten years. Was his second title of the season, following victory in the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity, where he held off a charging Thomas Bjørn on the final day to double his tally, 19 months after making his breakthrough in the 2011 Iskandar Johor Open. After that maiden triumph he travelled straight to China – where his parents were waiting to celebrate the victory with him – to represent the Netherlands alongside Robert-Jan Derksen in the Mission Hills World Cup. A wrist injury sustained at the 2008 BMW Asian Open kept him out of action until late 2009, but once restored to full fitness, the Dutchman displayed the talent which had earned him rave reviews during his rookie professional season which included two victories on the Challenge Tour in his first six events in 2007. Started golf as a nine year old when his uncle took him to a driving range in Rotterdam.
