As a former European tour golfer, Nick turned professional in 2002 landing his first European Tour victory in 2005 at the Caltex Masters in Singapore. He went on to be in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings in the same year, finishing in 15th place on the final European Tour Order of Merit. Following this, Nick went on to lead the 107th US Open in 2007 finishing tied 7th whilst also moving into the top 50 in the world and finishing 11th on the European Tour Order of Merit. Nick secured a second European Tour victory in the very same year at the prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and finished 11th on the Order of Merit. He then went on to win his third victory in 2009 at the BMW International Open in Germany, which led to a place in The Open Championship.
Nick announced his retirement from the sport in September 2016 with his final tournament taking place at the home of Golf in St Andrews at the ‘Alfred Dunhill Links’, the home of his most popular tour win.
Keen to share his wealth of knowledge and passion for the game, Nick joined the Sky Sports broadcasting team in 2016. His knowledge, warmth and engaging presentation style has led to him becoming the lead presenter across the network including hosting the Sky Sports ‘Sports Women of the Year’ awards in 2017. Nick created the hugely successful ‘Tee Time Tips’ series which has seen significant audience engagement, leading to Sky Sports commissioning the format as a TV show in 2018.
