One of Thomas Bjorn’s four wildcard picks for September 2018's Ryder Cup, he beat world No.1 Dustin Johnson in the singles to add another glorious chapter to his six caps.
Will always be remembered for his contribution to the event, most notably the five closing birdies he produced at Medinah in 2012 to spark Europe’s remarkable comeback from six points behind, but was only a vice-captain at the 2016 match.
His world ranking, which stood as high as fifth in 2010, slumped to 210th after an injury lay-off, but his joint second place at The Players in 2017 showed what he was still capable of.
It was followed by him coming third in the Canadian Open and then in 2018 by a quarter-final appearance at the WGC-Dell Match Play and a week later by victory at the Houston Open, which gave him the final spot at The Masters.
His first win in six years and first strokeplay title in America was achieved in a play-off with Beau Hossler after he sank a 20-foot birdie putt on the final green. His 12 European Tour titles include two World Golf Championships.
