Biography

Sealed the biggest win of his career in dramatic style at the first event of the 2014 Final Series, the BMW Masters, where he chipped in from the edge of the green to overcome Alexander Levy and Ross Fisher on the first hole of a sudden-death play-off. That success propelled the 34 year old German from 53rd to fourth in The Race to Dubai, and he remained in contention to win the race until the season finale, eventually settling for a career-high finish of seventh. Also won in 2013 courtesy of a commanding wire-to-wire victory in the Trophée Hassan II in Morocco, and the previous season he landed the Alstom Open de France title. That was his second victory on The European Tour, following his maiden success in the 2004 Dunhill Championship, and he also has a World Cup win on his CV after partnering fellow German Bernhard Langer to glory in Barbados in 2006. Owned his first club as a two year old, when he would play with a little putter, but really started playing at the age of six. His parents ran a golf club restaurant at Burge Overbach in Cologne and his father, Heinz, was a professional handball player before injury curtailed his career aged 23.
