Biography

Became only the fifth amateur to win on the Challenge Tour when he captured the 2010 ALLIANZ European Strasbourg-Golf de la Wantzenau as a 19 year old, finishing three strokes clear of the field. Went on to win the Eisenhower Trophy as part of the French team before turning professional and securing his first European Tour card after finishing in a share of ninth place at the 2010 Qualifying School. After a successful rookie season in 2011, continued to improve in 2012 by taking 51st place in The Race to Dubai, thanks largely to a fine fortnight in late summer, when he was tied third in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles and tied second at the Omega European Masters a week later. Started playing golf as a ten year old when his parents bought a house near Bussy St Georges Golf Club in Paris. Remains a member there and has been mentored by 2010 US Open runner-up Grégory Havret.
