Did you know?

The high point of Warren's excellent amateur career was holing the winning putt in the 2001 Walker Cup, which sealed a famous victory for the GB&I team over the USA at Ocean Forest GC, Sea Island, Georgia. Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell were also in the victorious GB&I team.

In 2002 Warren joined the ranks of professional golfers, steadily improving his game to finish top of the second-tier Challenge Tour in 2005. His first season on the European Tour saw him record his maiden tour win, earn the 2006 Rookie of the Year award and narrowly miss out on winning the prestigious World Cup of Golf. He and partner Colin Montgomerie lost out to Germans Bernhard Langer and Marcel Siem in a playoff. The two Scots made no mistake the following year, beating Americans Heath Slocum and Boo Weekley, also in a playoff.

After two early wins on the European Tour in 2006 and 2007, Warren had to wait until 2014 to win again. In terms of the European Tour, Scotland and Scandinavia appear to have been Warren's happy hunting ground to date.
