Made his major debut at last year’s U.S Open and now plays his first Open Championship thanks to a third place finish at May’s Dutch Open, where three places were on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series.
But there was better stuff to come. On July 3 he became the first Pole to win a DP World Tour title after finishing the Horizon Irish Open birdie-birdie-eagle-par.
Although born in Germany he represented Poland in the 2012, 2014 and 2016 Eisenhower Trophy Amateur World Team Championships, finishing alongside Justin Thomas in joint seventh place individually on his first appearance as a 19-year-old and then two strokes ahead of Viktor Hovland when he tied for third in 2016
Turned professional straight afterwards and had three years on the European Challenge Tour, winning the 2019 Portuguese Open, before graduating to the main circuit.
Hit the headlines late in 2020 when he led the Alfred Dunhill Championship with a round to go in South Africa, but managed only a closing 76 and finished joint runner-up to Christiaan Bezuidenhout.
Last year he was joint runner-up in the Italian Open, alongside Tommy Fleetwood and a stroke behind Nicolai Hojgaard, and tied for third in the Tenerife Open and British Masters. He then had a string of top six finishes in the first half of this season prior to his victory.
