Best cars owned:

The top one for me was one I bought really early on in my career. I’d had a good year and I treated myself to a purple BMW M3, which as a 21-22-year old was a ridiculous car to buy, but I loved it. It had a purple and cream leather interior.

2. A Ferrari, which was obviously nice.

3. A Ford GT.

Worst cars:

The first car I ever had was a Ford Fiesta, a little 1.1ltr engine and I basically toured the country with that car. As an amateur golfer I went everywhere in it. But just to have a car was brilliant. So I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad car, really.

People who have influenced your career the most?

Well, my Mum and Dad I class as one person – they were both very supportive of me when I was growing up and drove me to lessons and tournaments when I was a youngster.

Pete Cowen, definitely.

Helen. She’s given me a new way of approaching life and golf.

Players who’ve caught your attention

I remember watching one of the young Danish twins Nicolai and Rasmus Højgaard on the range earlier this year  – I couldn’t tell you which one it was – but he was very impressive!

Collin Morikawa, a young lad over in the States, who’s got a good technique.

I like Viktor Hovland too, he’s aggressive and that’s what you want to see from a young player. I like the way he plays.

Hate to lose to the most:

Sam Westwood. He doesn’t beat me very often, but when he does, it’s awful. I never hear the last of it.
