Biography

Continued to show why he is so highly regarded on The European Tour in 2014, finishing second behind good friend Rory McIlroy at the BMW PGA Championship en route to a career-best finish of tenth in The Race to Dubai Rankings. Also posted consecutive top ten finishes in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and The 143rd Open Championship, before finishing his season in style at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, where the Irishman finished fifth to move inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time. Claimed the 2012 Portugal Masters – his second European Tour title – with a superb final round 66. Had already finished by the time Ross Fisher needed to hole a four-foot par putt on the 18th to force a play-off, and was soon jumping for joy when the Englishman missed. Took fifth place in the lucrative BMW Masters a week later to finish 29th in The Race to Dubai. Shot to prominence in 2009 when he became only the third amateur to win a European Tour title – and the second that year following New Zealander Danny Lee – when he captured the Irish Open at County Louth Golf Club in Baltray, beating Robert Rock at the third hole of a play-off. His father, Brendan, was a famous Gaelic footballer who won the All-Ireland Championship with County Offaly in 1982.
