Story

It took a few years for Marc Warren to adjust to life as a professional since he joined the paid ranks in 2002.

But in 2005 he made his breakthrough on the European Challenge Tour, winning twice in the Ireland Ryder Cup Challenge and the Rolex Trophy to earn his playing privileges on the European Tour for 2006.

That season Warren continued his good form with a maiden European Tour title in the Scandinavian Masters, earning him the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award.

And he capped his season with a second-place finish in the World Cup of Golf for Scotland alongside Colin Montgomerie.

Warren’s next victory came in the 2007 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. He was again selected as the partner for Montgomerie in the World Cup of Golf, this time winning it for Scotland.

What followed though was a lengthy slump in his career and a number of close misses to add to his tournament victories.

But this year Warren has bounced back in style, and at one point was hunting a place on the European Ryder Cup team.

It was a season built around his victory in the Made in Denmark tournament on the European Tour, where he beat Bradley Dredge to the title.

And he says the revival in his game has been largely because of his family.

“It definitely makes you realise what’s important in life. As recently as the 2013 PGA Championship I came off after the first round a little bit disappointed and Laura, my wife, had Archie, my son, sitting at the steering wheel. It was amusing to see that and you instantly forget the trials and tribulations you went through on the golf course. It has re-focused my practice and made me want to be with my family and also provide for them.”

Warren has also shown a growing maturity at Major championship level over the past two years, particularly with his finishes of tied 12th in the 2013 PGA Championship and then tied 15th in the same Major this year.

“I think the last couple of years, I’ve consistently done pretty well at European Tour level, so to do well at the next level up again, Major level, is really satisfying. To know that everything I’m working on is obviously getting better and standing up to those types of pressures. Every part of my game is strong enough to compete, I would say, at that level.”
