Biography

Affectionately referred to as Beef, he drew the curtain on an exemplary 2014 Challenge Tour season when an eighth top ten finish of the year at the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club ensured he finished top of the Rankings. Claimed two victories on the circuit that year, firstly at the Scottish Hydro Challenge hosted by Macdonald Hotels and Resorts, before a second title followed a month later at Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge in July. He also chased compatriot Sam Hutsby all the way home at the lucrative Kazakhstan Open en route to a prize haul of €190,856 from 16 starts, second only to Edoardo Molinari’s record winnings total in 2009. Embarks on his second full season on The European Tour in 2015, having earned a maiden campaign through the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2011. Struggled with a wrist injury upon his return to the second tier a year later, but after a difficult year, returned fighting fit for a career-changing season in 2014. Started playing golf aged four after his father, a single figure handicapper, took him to a field to hit balls before joining North Middlesex Golf Club shortly after. Climbed through the amateur ranks to represent the England Boys team, winning the Boys Internationals in 2007, before turning professional aged 20. Is an Arsenal fan and a keen follower of basketball.
