Has become accustomed to leaving it late in the season to come up with the goods, and 2015 was no different. A top ten at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship – despite struggling with a calf muscle tear – lifted him into the safety zone, and subsequent top 20 finishes in Portugal and Hong Kong earned him a spot in the Turkish Airlines Open, the first event of the Final Series. In 2014 it was as tight as it gets, the Scot holing a 35-foot birdie putt on the last green at the ISPS HANDA Perth International to finish joint fourth and jump into the all-important top 110 in the Race to Dubai. Had near-misses in 2005 and 2006, after a play-off win in the 2004 Challenge Tour Grand Final secured his return to the top tier. The 2005 season was most frustrating as he failed to keep his playing privileges by just €586 and then missed out by a single shot at the Qualifying School Final Stage. Won his card at the School in 2007 and 2008. Started playing golf at the age of 12 and at 17 experienced playing in the 121st Open Championship at Muirfield, where he acted as a marker for Roger Chapman and John Daly over the final two rounds.
