Two months later, following two more second places in the FedEx Cup play-off series, he reached world No 1, then in November regained the spot by winning the Turkish Airlines Open after a play-off with Haotong Li and in January achieved his 10th PGA Tour success at the Farmers Insurance Open. Missed his first 21 cuts as a professional, but became European Tour No1 in 2007 and achieved major glory in the 2013 US Open at Merion, beating Phil Mickelson and Jason Day by two.

Twice a runner-up in The Masters, losing a play-off to Sergio Garcia in 2017, and winner of two World Golf Championships – the Cadillac Championship in 2012 and the 2017 HSBC Champions in China, where he came from eight behind Johnson on the final day.

Proud holder of an Olympic gold medal after victory over Henrik Stenson on the sport’s return to the Games in 2016. Has 11 European Tour titles and collected his fifth Ryder Cup cap in September.
