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.
