Validated his reputation as one of the rising stars of world golf when he holed a nerve-shredding putt at the 18th to win the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai by a single shot. His second European Tour victory of the 2016 season following the Nordea Masters and his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine National. Aged 22 years and 80 days he became the youngest Englishman to win his first three European Tour titles, beating the previous record of Sir Nick Faldo, who was 22 years and 300 days, when he won his third European Tour event, the 1980 Sun Alliance PGA Championship. His maiden European Tour title at the 2015 British Masters supported by Sky Sports. Closed out a superb wire-to-wire victory in front of packed galleries at Woburn Golf Club with a final round 68 to win by two shots, fulfilling the enormous potential he has shown in the early stages of his career. Was playing the event thanks to a sponsor’s invitation and was able to celebrate the victory with his parents, who watched every round. Two weeks later he carried that form to the UBS Hong Kong Open, where he was third, and in November made a brilliant World Golf Championships debut, finishing tied seventh at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China. Earlier in the season he finished runner-up to fellow Sheffield player Danny Willett at the Omega European Masters, and came within inches of a first 59 on the European Tour at the KLM Open, his birdie putt on the last at Kennemer Golf Club stopping agonisingly short. Came through the Qualifying School Final Stage at the end of 2014, taking the 11th card at PGA Catalunya Resort having successfully negotiated the Second Stage. Launched himself into the spotlight courtesy of a stellar amateur career in which he won the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship and was ranked Number One in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. Made the cut in both the 2013 Open Championship, finishing in a tie for 44th, as well as at the 2014 U.S. Open Championship, where he was tied 48th.
