Biography

Enjoyed an outstanding 2014 campaign, becoming the first player in the modern era to finish inside the top five in all four Major Championships in a single season without winning one. The closest he came to breaking his Major duck was in The Open Championship, where he finished two shots behind his close friend and former Walker Cup opponent, Rory McIlroy. In nine appearances on The European Tour in 2014, he finished in the top ten on eight occasions. Started playing golf aged three, but his main passion as a youngster was dirt-bike riding. Gave up the sport after an accident prior to his freshman year in high school resulted in several broken bones in his foot. Formed a parody group with his fellow US PGA Tour members Ben Crane, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan. The quartet, known as Golf Boys, have released several videos on YouTube.
