European Tour Profile

David enjoyed a successful amateur career, but exceeded even his own expectations in his first full season on the Challenge Tour in 2008, claiming two titles and graduating to the European Tour as the Order of Merit winner.

He has gone on to establish himself as a mainstay of the European Tour, where has won three times. 

David's breakthrough came at the Telenet Trophy, where he birdied three of the last four holes to take a one-shot victory in 2008.

Buoyed by the win, he effectively clinched his main tour card for 2009 with his second victory of the season at the AGF-Allianz EurOpen de Lyon two weeks later – a final-day 65 giving him the title by one shot.

He also sampled his first taste of playing in a major championship, qualifying for the 137th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. He comfortably retained his card in his rookie season on the European Tour, missing only six cuts out of 26 tournaments to finish 76th in the Race to Dubai. His best performance was second at the Maybank Malaysian Open.

The Englishman recorded his maiden European Tour victory at the BMW International Open in Germany in 2010, finishing 18 under par for a one-shot victory. Three more top tens, including second at the Italian Open, helped him to 32nd in the Race to Dubai standings with earnings of just under €900,000.

David was back in the winner's circle in March 2011, winning the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco via a play-off. He enjoyed three more top tens and made a total of 21 cuts, finishing 43rd in the Race Dubai with earnings of more than €700,000. He was also part of the successful GB&I team which retained the Seve Vivendi Trophy in September 2011.

The keen Manchester United supporter showed signs of returning to his best form in 2013, finishing in the money 20 times out of a possible 26 and securing his place at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

David then went on to secure his third European Tour title in 2014, beating Damien McGrane on a play-off to win the Russian Masters.

His fourth win came with a wire to wire victory at Made in Denmark in August 2015. David started the week with a course record 63 at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort and scores of 67, 68 and 73 were enough to secure the win.

David earnt the biggest cheque of his career with a share of second place at the Turkish Airlines Open in 2016, shooting a final round of 65 to pile the pressure on eventual winner Thorbjorn Olesen.
