He has been one of the most consistent performers on tour since 2005, which was personified by his performance in 2012 with 25 cuts made in 25 tournaments and winning the Open de España.

However, not deterred, and almost a year later, he showed the golfing world his prowess, with wins at the BMW PGA Championship, Quicken Loans and his most triumphant moment and every golfers dream a Major win at The 147th Carnoustie Open.
