Became the first left-hander since 1975 to win on the European Tour after landing the 1997 Dubai Desert Classic in a play-off with Ian Woosnam and Greg Norman and it was another ten years before he won his second title by capturing the 2007 BA-CA Golf Open, presented by Telekom Austria, after again winning in a play-off, this time defeating Jean-Francois Remesy. He also won the 2004 MasterCard Masters on the PGA Tour of Australasia in a play-off. One of the most consistent players on the European Tour, he finished joint fourth in the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie, his highest finish in a Major, which earned him an invite to the Masters Tournament for the first time. Another consistent year in 2008 saw his best finish - of tied third coming at the Barclays Scottish Open. Learned the game at Huntingdale, Melbourne. Attended the Victoria Institute of Sport and works with Darren Webster-Clarke. A fanatical motor racing fan who would love to race V8's and loves nothing more than driving and maintaining his own race car.
