Makes his Open Championship debut after winning his first two DP World Tour titles during a 2022 season which saw him finish 17th on the rankings.
In 2013, he became the first Scot to win the British Boys' Championship in almost a decade and a year later was the first player to hold that crown as well as the Scottish boys and Scottish boys stroke play titles at the same time, while he also helped Scotland win the European Team Championship in Sweden.
In Britain and Ireland’s 2015 Walker Cup victory at Royal Lytham & St Annes, Ferguson beat world No.2 amateur Maverick McNealy. Recorded three runner-up finishes on the Challenge Tour in 2021 and, at eighth on their rankings, earned promotion to the main circuit.
Success quickly followed. At the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, he overturned a three-stroke final round deficit and birdied the par five last to win by one and then he became the first Scot to win more than once in a season since Paul Lawrie in 2012 when he took the ISPS HANDA World Invitational by three.
Also finished runner-up to Oliver Wilson at September’s Made in Himmerland tournament.
