Won titles on the PGA and European tours before reaching his 21st birthday. ... After making the cut on the number, shot 66-62 this past weekend to triumph at the Quail Hollow Championship. ... Latter of those two rounds broke the course record by 2 strokes. ... First career professional title came in the prestigious Dubai Desert Classic two years ago, buoyed by a deft chip from the back bunker on the final hole.

"I just want to concentrate on getting a few more wins, learn as much as I can at the majors. I've had a couple of good finishes before, but it really takes awhile to get used to figuring them out."

CAREER BEST FINISH:

Win, 2010 Quail Hollow Championship, 2009 Dubai Desert Classic
