Meet Luke

Grew up in High Wycombe but went to college at Northwestern University in 1997, studying art the ory and practice and winning the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships title in 1999. Starred in Walker Cup victories in 1999 and 2001.

 

Turned professional in 2001 and has since won 16 titles worldwide, including seven on the European Tour. The year 2011 proved his annus mirabilis, winning three times on the European Tour – including the BMW PGA Championship, which he defended in 2012 – and once on the US PGA Tour, reaching World Number One and becoming the first player to win both the European and American money lists in the same season.

 

Has a fine Ryder Cup record, having played in four winning teams and won 10.5 points from a possible 15. Was awarded an MBE and made an Honorary Life Member of the European Tour in 2012.
