Biography

Will play on The 2006 European Tour International Schedule on a Medical Extension after missing the second half of the 2005 season because of back and shoulder problems which eventually required surgery. Has been troubled with injury problems on and off in his career and indeed in his early professional days, he suffered from a persistent wrist injury which necessitated soft tissue reconstruction surgery in 1994. A top amateur, he won two Lytham Trophy titles and the English Amateur Stroke Play Championship twice before turning professional in 1991. Shot the lowest round of his professional career to date in the first round of the 1999 German Open – a ten under par 62. Enjoyed his best season since turning professional when he finished 21st on the 2002 Order of Merit. Undoubted highlight came in The Open Championship at Muirfield where he finished in a tie for fifth place, just one stroke outside the four man play-off, eventually won by Ernie Els. Endeared himself to millions of television viewers around the world with an audacious 50 foot putt for par right across the 17th green before turning to the camera and pronouncing, ‘That one’s for you, Mum!’
