    Became only the tenth player in history to win on his Challenge Tour debut when he captured the Moroccan Golf Classic title by two strokes. A closing round of 68 for a winning 13 under par aggregate total saw Baker join the exclusive club, which includes Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke, South African Trevor Immelman, Germany’s Martin Kaymer and Italian Edoardo Molinari. Started the day two shots off the lead held by Jesus Maria Arruti, but four birdies in an immaculate round of golf at Pullman Mazagan Royal Golf and Spa in El Jadida, Morocco, were good enough to take the title by two shots. In the process, became the first American winner on the Challenge Tour since Kevin Stadler won – also on his debut – in Argentina in 2006. Was first introduced to the game at the age of six by his golf-mad father back home in Brownstown, Indiana. Attended Iowa State University, and is coached by Tim Cooke, the head coach at Long Cover Golf Club in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Golfing hero is Payne Stewart, and sporting hero is Lance Armstrong.
