Biography

Ross attended the University of Tennessee from 2000 ? 2005 and was selected as part of the All American team in 2004-5. He turned professional at the end of 2006, having won the English Amateur Championship the same year, when he defeated Oliver Fisher in the final. He finished 2nd on the European Challenge Tour's OoM in 2007 and was the Sunshine Tour's Rookie of the Year in the same year. He made his European Tour breakthrough with victory in the 2009 Madrid Masters, his third round 60 laying the foundations to a maiden success. His winning total was a brilliant 24 under par. In the same year, he finished second to Lee Westwood in the season-ending Dubai World Championship, en route to a 12th place finish in The Race to Dubai. Ross was unable to match the highs of 2009 during the 2010 season as a persistent wrist injury severely hampered his form ? he finished in 77th place in 2010 The Race to Dubai. The injury-hit spell also meant he missed out on a place in The 2010 European Ryder Cup Team, having spent many months in the qualification places
