THE TOP 25
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:
Became the youngest winner in the history of the European Tour when he won the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic while still an amateur at 18 years, 213 days. ... That came on the heels of his U.S. Amateur victory one year earlier, when he became the youngest winner of that championship (a mark that has since been surpassed). ... Has endured a disappointing season in Europe, with no finish better than T-45 in nine starts. ... Has made the cut in seven of 14 career PGA Tour appearances, with three top-10s. ... Resides in Dallas.
"I played [in America] because I just wanted to know how the U.S. PGA feels like, so it was different than over here [in Europe] and the weather is much hotter. I like cold weather and I think I play better in the cold weather, so I think I like it over here better."
CAREER BEST FINISH:
Win, 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic; Win, 2008 U.S. Amateur
