Shared the lead heading into the final round of the 2015 Trophée Hassan II but had to settle for second place, one shot behind Richie Ramsay. Has had several close calls, including at the 2014 KLM Open, where he led going into the last day after three superb rounds, only to fall away with a closing 75. Enjoyed a promising rookie season in 2011 and continued to progress in 2012, taking a share of second place in the Omega European Masters, where two years later he had a hole-in-one – winning a 12-month lease of a BMW of his choice – en route to another top ten finish. Won the Eisenhower Trophy as part of the France team before turning professional and securing his European Tour card after finishing in a share of ninth place at the 2010 Qualifying School. Earlier that year, he became only the fifth amateur to win on the Challenge Tour when he captured the ALLIANZ European Strasbourg-Golf de la Wantzenau as a 19 year old, finishing three strokes clear. Started playing golf aged ten 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.
