Biography

Won on his third European Tour title at the 2015 Trophée Hassan II in Morocco, carding a final round three under par 69 to win by one stroke from Romain Wattel. That was his sixth appearance of the 2015 season and until then he had failed to complete a tournament, accruing four missed cuts and one withdrawal. Was emotional after the victory, his first since the 2012 Omega European Masters, where he triumphed thanks to stunning weekend rounds of 64 and 66. His first win came at the 2010 South African Open Championship, where he beat Shiv Kapur in a play-off. Before turning professional, achieved the accolade of becoming the first amateur golfer to be officially ranked World Number One when The R&A released the first official Amateur Rankings on January 23, 2007. Away from golf, he has studied at the University of Stirling after spending time in Texas on a golf scholarship, graduating with a BA Hons in Marketing and Sports Studies. Born and bred in Aberdeen, he has been playing golf since the age of three.
