Finally made his European Tour breakthrough in spectacular style in the 2013 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Needing to birdie the par five 18th on the final day to join Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee in a play-off, the Englishman hit his second shot to 12 feet and holed the eagle putt for a brilliant win, fulfilling the potential he showed at The 139th Open Championship in 2008. Came tied fifth at Royal Birkdale while still an amateur, winning the Silver Medal, and a year later, having subsequently turned professional, took a share of third place at Turnberry, one shot away from a play-off. Received the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2009, having earned his playing rights by coming fifth at the Qualifying School Final Stage in late 2008. Had several near-misses before breaking his duck in 2013, including coming second in the 2012 Sicilian Open and losing a play-off to Louis Oosthuizen for the 2011 Africa Open title. At 6ft 5ins matches Robert Karlsson as the tallest player on Tour.
