Three times a winner during a memorable 2018. And by the summer of 2019, following a superb joint third place finish at the PGA Championship, Wallace was in the world’s top 25.
The previous season also included a joint runner-up finish in the DP Tour World Championship and his Open Championship debut, although he left it late to grab a spot. Victory in the BMW International Open in June made him one of the four players to earn a Carnoustie start off the European Tour rankings the same day.
His maiden victory on the circuit came at the 2017 Portuguese Open in what was only his fourth event at that level – he did not even have full membership at the time. He then defeated compatriot Andrew Johnston in a play-off for the Hero Indian Open and took the Made in Denmark title as well, also in sudden death after he had tied with Lee Westwood, Steven Brown and Jonathan Thomson.
Wallace turned professional in 2012. Four years later he registered an incredible five successive wins on the Alps mini-tour and six in all.
The runner-up to Bryson DeChambeau in Dubai at the start of 2019, he was second again at the British Masters.
