Biography

Made his long-awaited breakthrough in spectacular style at the 2013 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Needing to birdie the par five 18th on the final day to join Sergio Garcia and George Coetzee in a play-off, the Englishman hit his second shot to 12 feet and holed the eagle putt for a sensational victory. Claimed his second title in June 2015 at the Lyoness Open powered by Greenfinity, where a final round five under par 67 gave him a two stroke victory. Was the perfect comeback after five months out the previous winter with a broken hand, sustained while playing tennis. Showed enormous potential at The 139th Open Championship in 2008. Finished in a tie for fifth at Royal Birkdale while still an amateur, so winning the Silver Medal, and having subsequently turned professional he took a share of third place at Turnberry one year later, missing out on a play-off by one shot. Received the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2009, having earned his playing rights by coming fifth at the Qualifying School Final Stage in late 2008. Had several near-misses before breaking his duck in 2013, including finishing runner-up in the 2012 Sicilian Open and losing a play-off to Louis Oosthuizen in the 2011 Africa Open. While 2014 was another strong season, racking up six top tens, he might remember it as the year he famously ripped the back of his trousers while lining up a putt, providing photos that instantly went viral online. At 6ft 6ins, he matches Robert Karlsson and Thomas Pieters as the tallest players on Tour.
