Came close to securing a second European Tour title in the 2014 M2M Russian Open, but ultimately came up one shot short. Got his 2013 campaign off to the best possible start, claiming his maiden European Tour title in the first event of the year, the Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa, beating Eduardo de la Riva and Steve Webster in a play-off in Durban. Continued the progress he had shown since graduating from the Challenge Tour in 2010, having finished 59th and 53rd respectively in The 2011 and 2012 Race to Dubai. Represented Great Britain and Ireland for the Seve Trophy in September 2011. Credits his time at Augusta State University with improving his short game. His dream is to earn a place in the field for the Masters Tournament, having played at Augusta National once a year during his four-year scholarship studying Business and Marketing. Met American wife Natalie during his time at college and proposed to her during a holiday to Amelia Island in Florida. Joined the professional ranks in 2006, almost immediately after representing his country in the Eisenhower Trophy in South Africa. Is an avid supporter of Rangers FC.
