Biography

Took an unusual route to the top of European golf, not seriously playing the game until he was 16. Until that point had focused on cricket, playing in the same England youth teams as Alastair Cook, Ravi Bopara and Tim Bresnan, but went from an 18 handicap to scratch in less than a year and earned a golf scholarship to the University of South Carolina. Returned home to play first on the EuroPro Tour and then the European Challenge Tour, having turned professional after the 2006 Qualifying School. Graduated from the Challenge Tour in 2009 and in 2010 captured his first title, at the Madeira Islands Open. Comfortably kept his card for three seasons following graduation. Endured a disappointing 2013 but bounced straight back at Qualifying School, winning his second title in 2015 at the Open de España.
