Returned to The European Tour in style via the 2012 Challenge Tour Rankings, taking third place after an impressively consistent season. Made a flying start with top ten finishes in the Gujurat Kensville Challenge, the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Classic and the lucrative Madeira Islands Open - Portugal. Then enjoyed a fine end to the season with victory in the D+D Real Czech Challenge Open and tied seventh place at the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final. Burst onto the scene in 2010 when his Challenge Tour record read: played four, won two. His first victory came as an amateur at the ECCO Tour Championship, where he was playing under a sponsor’s invitation. Subsequently decided to leave Texas State University in America in order to pursue a career as a professional golfer, and the decision was a shrewd one as he then won the Roma Golf Open presented by REZZA, edging out Joel Sjöholm in a play-off. Took the eighth card at the 2010 Qualifying School Final Stage to graduate to The European Tour less than three months after relinquishing his amateur status. Could not keep his card in 2011 but returns for a second shot in 2013. Switched sports from football to golf aged 13 and now his whole family play, including Dad Kaspar, who was on the bag for his victory in Rome. Always carries four white tees, his lucky 100 lira coin and an R&A pitch mark repairer in his pocket during tournaments, and reads crime novels in his spare time to take his mind off golf.
