Biography

Became the first player from Belgium to play in The Ryder Cup when he was selected by José María Olazábal as a wildcard in 2012. As part of the European victory dubbed the Miracle at Medinah, he produced one of the best debut performances in history when, in partnership with England’s Lee Westwood, he carded eight birdies and an eagle to defeat Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker in the Friday fourballs. His first European Tour victory came at the 2011 Volvo China Open, before he secured his second title at the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2012. Came close to carding the first 59 in European Tour history at the 2014 Portugal Masters, narrowly missing a 15ft birdie putt on the last hole of the first round.
