Biography

Ended four years in the golfing wilderness when he came through the 2015 Qualifying School Final Stage, taking the fifth card at PGA Catalunya Resort. Went from the highs of finishing second in the 2009 DP Tour World Championship, Dubai and nearly making the 2010 European Ryder Cup team to the lows of losing his card in 2011 and spending the next four seasons battling injuries and trying to claw his way back. Made his European Tour breakthrough with victory in the 2009 Madrid Masters, his third round 60 laying the foundations to a maiden success. That round will not appear in the record books as preferred lies were in place but it helped open up a seven-stroke lead at 54 holes. At 24 under par he was one better than the record all-time low 54-hole aggregate on the European Tour. Won the English Amateur Championship in 2006, beating Oliver Fisher in the final, and turned professional later that year after graduating from the University of Tennessee. Continued to make rapid progress by finishing second in the Challenge Tour Rankings the following season.
