Player Notes

Capped a stunning 2008 season by claiming fifth place at the European Tour Qualifying School – Final Stage to earn his playing privileges for this season. That achievement was one of two distinct golfing highlights last year, the other coming at the 137th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale when the then amateur player announced his arrival to golf's grandest stage by beating the majority of the world's best players to take a share of fifth place behind Padraig Harrington. Turned professional after The Open and played in eight European Tour events, with his best performance coming at the Portugal Masters, where he finished tied tenth. Was a keen footballer with aspirations to play for Bristol City Football Club before a serious knee injury saw him devote his time to golf.
