Landed the biggest win of his career at the first event of the 2015 season, the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa. Shot weekend rounds of 65 and 66 for an 18 under par total at the Gary Player Country Club to win by four shots from compatriot Ross Fisher and claim the lucrative first prize. That was his second European Tour title after the 2012 BMW International Open, where he beat Marcus Fraser in a play-off at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof in Cologne, Germany. The son of a preacher from Sheffield enjoyed a stunning amateur career, winning the English Amateur Championship at Royal St George’s after being crowned Yorkshire Amateur Champion in 2007, before going on to play in the Walker Cup and become number one amateur in Europe. Earned his 2009 playing rights after cruising through all three stages of the Qualifying School. Currently coached by Graham Walker, who was previously named in Golf Monthly’s Top 25 Coaches.
