Player Notes

In 2006, claimed two titles on the European Tour for a second consecutive season and added one title in 2007 when he finished a best-ever fifth on the Order of Merit. . .His previous best year on the Order of Merit was in 2001 where he finished tenth, helped largely by finishing runner-up to David Duval in The Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St Annes. He went on to make his Ryder Cup debut in 2002 where he was denied the chance of holing the winning putt by Paul Azinger's audacious chip in from the bunker at the 18 in their singles match. Earlier in his career, he came close to becoming the first player to win The European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage twice, having claimed top honors in 1996 and then finishing second in 1999. Attempted to play in America and Europe in 1998 and admitted it was a mistake: "I spent all my time on a plane!" Decision to re-focus totally on Europe paid off with victory in Madeira Island Open in 2000. . .Solid 2003 was followed by a modest 2004, in which he played a sizeable schedule in America but he started 2005 in style with victory in the Holden New Zealand Open. Six months later he followed that with a second play-off victory when he won the Deutsche Bank Players' Championship of Europe after defeating Angel Cabrera at the third extra hole. . .Superb 2005 saw him win twice, both in play-offs. After winning twice in both 2005 and 2006, his took his victory tally up to six European Tour titles when he won the 2007 BMW International Open in Munich. Finished fourth at the 2007 U.S. Open.
