Celebrated the finest moment of his career in November 2017 when he topped the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex for the first time.
Was crowned European Number One after a stellar season that was kick-started by victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, a superb second place at the WGC-Mexico Championship, a first Rolex Series win at the HNA Open de France and a fourth place finish at the U.S. Open amongst an impressive ten top tens.
Followed that season up by defending his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title in 2018, virtually securing his place at The Ryder Cup in Paris, just a week after playing in the winning European team at the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM.
Made history at the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills when his seven under par 63 equalled the record for the lowest round at a U.S. Open and the lowest score on the final day of a Major Championship.
His breakthrough victory came in the 2013 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.
Produced a number of notable amateur performances, including finishing runner-up at the 2008 Amateur Championship and playing in the 2009 Walker Cup before turning professional in 2010.
Became the youngest player to win the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2011, aged 20 and 290 days.
