Roll of Honour

Ryder Cup player (2010). Multiple wins on the European and Sunshine Tours.

Did you know?

Born in Ascot in Berkshire, Fisher was introduced to golf at the age of three by his step-father. His game was developed and honed close to Ascot at the prestigious Wentworth Club. Aged 23 Fisher embarked on a professional golf career, and became a frequent winner and challenger on the European Tour.

In his private life, Fisher has something of a penchant for fast cars ... with his local Ferrari and Maserati garage located in Egham, just a couple of minutes away (by Ferrari) from Wentworth, which remains Fisher's home club.
