Biography

Posted eight top ten finishes in 2014, eventually finishing in a career-high 28th place in The Race to Dubai Rankings. Thanks to three superb rounds he had led going into the final day of the KLM Open on 14 under par, only to fall away after a closing round of 75. Still, it was a season to remember for Wattel, who finished 84th in a largely unspectacular 2013 season. Following a successful rookie campaign in 2011, he continued to show his potential 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 joint second at the Omega European Masters a week later. Clearly enjoys Crans sur Sierre, having finished in the top ten in 2014 thanks in part to a hole in one on the final day – a feat which earned him 12-month lease of a BMW of his choice. Won 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. 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 of the field. 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.
