Biography

One of the top golfers to come out of Wales, he has represented his country nine times in the World Cup but it was in another team competition, The Ryder Cup, that he truly emerged from the shadows. Having qualified in tenth place for The 2002 Ryder Cup, he made a phenomenal debut at The Belfry by beating Phil Mickelson in the final day’s singles to secure an invaluable point for the European cause. The following year he claimed the biggest win of his career when he completed a bold wire-to-wire win in the 2003 Smurfit Kappa European Open. After a brief sojourn in the United States, returned to his home Tour and was in danger of losing his card in 2010 when 127th on The Race to Dubai heading into October. However, earned €118,940 in his next three events to move to 100th and be assured of his card, and he just retained it in 2011 and 2012, finishing 118th place - the last safe spot – and 103rd respectively. Began playing at Pontypridd Golf Club as a boy and was inspired when he saw his first big tournament, the 1978 Dunlop Masters at St Pierre, won by Tommy Horton. After his first European Tour win, the 1994 Portuguese Open, he was named ‘Pontypridd Man of the Year’. After his Ryder Cup heroics, he completed a notable Welsh double by being named ‘Newport Man of the Year’ in honour of his new home town.
