Back onto the PGA Tour

August 26: Daniel will return to the upper echelons of world golf next year having secured his US PGA Tour for 2014.

He finished in a tie for 48th in the Cox Classic Presented by Lexus of Omaha at the weekend to put him in 21st position on the Tour Money List.

The top-25 on the List secured their US PGA Tour cards to set themselves up for a lucrative 2014 season. “I am overjoyed and delighted that all the hard work I have put into my game has come into fruition,” said Daniel.

Daniel first joined the US PGA Tour in 2004 and recorded his breakthrough victory in 2007 when he claimed the Ginn sur Mer Classic.

Two US PGA Tour events later he picked up another win at the season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship in 2008.

In 2010, a dip in form saw him lose his card but he bounced back brilliantly the following season by winning the Nationwide Tour’s Fresh Express Classic. That helped him regain his US PGA Tour card for 2012 after he finished 19th on the Money List.

He was unable to keep his card but following an excellent 2013 season his sights are now firmly set on winning again on the US PGA Tour. The 39-year-old has won on nearly every Tour in the game of golf and has claimed 14 professional tournaments around the world.

In addition to his success in the States he has triumphed three times in Europe, and on six occasions in Asia (two each in India, Malaysia, and Chinese Taipei).
