Biography

Landed the biggest title of his career at the 2016 BMW PGA Championship, where a three under par 69 in the final round gave him a one-stroke victory over Swede Rikard Karlberg in second place and Danny Willett in third. The year before had finished fourth at Wentworth Club, shortly before winning his second European Tour event, the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity in Austria. That was the perfect way to banish the frustrations of the previous 12 months, having broken a bone in his hand playing tennis is October 2014. Made his breakthrough in early 2013 in spectacular style, holing a 12-ft eagle putt on the par five last to win by one shot from Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee. Showed enormous potential at the 139th Open Championship in 2008. Finished in a tie for fifth at Royal Birkdale while still an amateur, so winning the Silver Medal, and having subsequently turned professional he took a share of third place at Turnberry one year later, missing out on a play-off by one shot. 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 finishing runner-up in the 2012 Sicilian Open and losing a play-off to Louis Oosthuizen in the 2011 Africa Open. Provided one of the funniest moments of 2014 when he ripped the back of his trousers while lining up a putt, and the photos instantly went viral online.
