Will aim in 2016 to return to the form of 2013, when he made the perfect start to the season by winning the weather-affected Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa, where he beat Eduardo de la Riva and Steve Webster in a play-off. Came close to adding a second title the following year in Russia, but settled for third place, one shot off making the play-off. Turned his season around in 2010 on the Challenge Tour with strong performances in key events towards the end of the season, and a year later was making his debut for Great Britain and Ireland in the Seve Trophy. 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, 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.
