Biography

One of a dozen first-time winners on the European Tour in 1999. Beat John Bickerton at the first hole of a play-off for the Portuguese Algarve Open. Formerly the most easily identifiable golfer on Tour, wearing shirt and tie courtesy of his then sponsors. Less formal now, but still cuts a dapper figure on the fairways. Once a keen Judo fighter, competing in national championships at Crystal Palace as a 12 year old. Took up golf at age 11 after he and father drove past a pitch-and-putt course. Scratch at 15 and played Walker Cup in 1999. Took a break through injury in 2008 and ran a successful academy in London before returning to play in 2014.
