Biography

Along with his younger sibling Lloyd, became the first brothers to gain their cards at the same Qualifying School, securing a place on The European Tour for the first time in 2011. Both brothers previously played in The Open Championship together at Turnberry in 2009, where their youngest brother Zack caddied for Elliot. Watched Lloyd play in The 2005 Open Championship from outside the ropes, which inspired him to work harder at his own game. Grew up on a farm and was introduced to golf by his father after initially excelling at rugby. Finished second in the Fred Olsen Challenge de España on the Challenge Tour in 2010. Naturally powerful, has always been a long hitter but had to refine his natural slice by working with renowned swing coach Bob Torrance. Attached to Archerfield Links alongside Senior Tour professional DJ Russell. Away from the course is a car fanatic.
