After a quiet couple of years on the Challenge Tour, he cashed in on the biggest prize of his career by winning the 2014 Kazakhstan Open title to ensure graduation to The European Tour for a third full campaign, this time via sixth place on the Rankings. The foundation of his victory was a stunning nine under par second round at Zhailjau Golf Resort to edge out compatriot Andrew Johnston by a couple of strokes. In his previous two turns on The Race to Dubai he had mixed success, finishing 206th in 2012 and missing out on retaining his card by just one place at 118th in 2010. Both his previous seasons on The European Tour were earned as the result of runner-up finishes at the Qualifying School Final Stage. Enjoyed an impressive amateur career, during which he represented Great Britain & Ireland in the Walker Cup in 2009. That year he also made the final of the Amateur Championship, three years after his success in the Spanish Amateur Championship, which earned him a European Tour debut that season at the Open de España.
