Was only 22 when he tied for ninth in The Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes in 2012, but on his Masters debut the following April came joint sixth and climbed to a career-high 33rd in the world rankings. 

Thorbjorn Olesen  

He was the leading European in the tournament – and that after starting the week with a six-over-par 78.

Grabbed the final automatic place in Europe’s Ryder Cup team in 2018 and marked his debut with a superb singles win over Jordan Spieth. Olesen’s first European Tour title came at the 2012 Sicilian Open and he won again in Australia in 2014 and after three months out recovering from hand surgery added the 2015 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland. 

In 2016 he captured the Turkish Airlines Open, his performance including a second-round 62, and then three weeks later he and Soren Kjeldsen combined for a better-ball 60 en route to lifting the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf in Australia.

Returned to winning ways in the Italian Open in June 2018, his closing 64 holding off local hero Francisco Molinari, and then produced a career-low closing 61 to finish joint runner-up at the BMW International Open.
