Had to come through Final Qualifying to play at Royal Liverpool last summer but finishing 20th on the DP World Tour rankings meant he could look forward to competing again at Royal Troon.

His season included runner-up finishes at the Czech Masters and season-ending DP World Tour Championship but his best achievement in 2023 has to be his maiden PGA Tour title at the Corales Puntacala Championship, where he pipped Nicolai Hojgaard by a single stroke.

Wallace had dropped to 175th in the world at the time after reaching the game’s top 25 following a memorable 2018 which saw him win three times and then produce a superb joint-third place finish at the 2019 PGA Championship.

His maiden victory on his home circuit came at the 2017 Portuguese Open in what was only his fourth event at that level – he did not even have full membership then – and further successes came at the Hero Indian Open, BMW International Open and Made in Denmark tournament, the last two of those in four-man play-offs.

Went into sudden death again at the 2022 Omega European Masters, but lost to Thriston Lawrence. Turned professional in 2012 and on the Alps mini-tour registered an incredible five successive wins and six in all in 2016.
