Biography

A proud Bristolian, he began golf at a young age and finished tied fifth at Royal Birkdale while still an amateur, winning the Silver Medal, and after turning professional he took a share of third place at Turnberry one year later. Received the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2009, having earned his playing rights at Qualifying School and has since won three events, including the biggest of his career at the 2016 BMW PGA Championship, en route to a career-best 11th place finish in the Race to Dubai and a Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine in the autumn of that year. Along with Robert Karlsson is the joint tallest man on the European Tour at 6ft 6 inches.
