Biography

Won his first European Tour title at the 256th attempt when he won the Open de Saint Omer in 2007 and immediately dedicated the victory to his 94 year old grandfather, Cyril Jewsbury, who introduced him to the game. Born in Gran Canaria after his Swedish father, Gunnar, and English mother, Pauline, decided to escape the harsh northern European winters to seek sunnier climes. Suffers from hyperthyroidism and diabetes which he believed was the reason for several tough years before medication and treatment brought both conditions under control. Took Spanish citizenship in 1996 after representing England at amateur level and attending Oklahoma State University. Topped the Challenge Tour Rankings in 1999 and teamed up, in 2003, with David Leadbetter coach Jason Floyd, who helped rebuild his swing and ensured he would return to The European Tour once again. Had to go through Qualifying School in 2009 to secure his card for the following season, coming tied 12th at Final Stage.
