Biography

Validated his undoubted potential and reputation as one of the rising stars of the game when he shared the lead heading into the final round of the 2015 Omega European Masters, alongside fellow Sheffield resident Danny Willett. Carded a four under par final round of 66, but Willett went one better to take the title. Nevertheless earned €300,000 in taking the runner-up spot, securing the European Tour card he won late in 2014 at the Qualifying School Final Stage. Took the 11th card at PGA Catalunya resort to a maiden Race to Dubai season, having also come through the Second Stage by finishing tied fifth at Campo de Golf El Saler. Made a good impression on the Challenge Tour in 2014, finishing no worse than tied 42nd in nine starts, his best finish coming in his penultimate event on the second tier – a tie for sixth at the Foshan Open thanks to a closing 65. Launched himself into the spotlight courtesy of a stellar amateur career in which he won the 2013 US Amateur Championship and was ranked Number One in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. Made the cut in both The 2013 Open Championship, finishing in a tie for 44th, as well as at the 2014 US Open Championship, where he was tied 48th. Lists superhero films and Sheffield United Football Club among his interests.
