Made a name for himself on the Challenge Tour by winning the 2014 National Bank of Oman Classic, the penultimate event of the season and part of the lucrative Final Swing. Posted a final round 71 to win by two shots, and finished the campaign 22 in the Challenge Tour Rankings. Maintained that fine form to collect another trophy at the end of the year, at the AfrAsia Golf Masters in Mauritius, where 2012 Ryder Cup player Nicolas Colsaerts was also in the field. Had started the 2014 season – his first as a professional – on the Pro Golf Tour and won a title in Egypt. Enjoyed an impressive amateur career and was part of the 2013 Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team.
