In 1991 and 1992 he played on the second tier Challenge Tour, winning twice in the latter year to qualify for membership of the main tour, which he has retained since. The first of his three European Tour wins came at the 1999 Lancome Trophy.

He was a member of the European team at the 2002 Ryder Cup. In 2004 he slipped to 134th place on the Order of Merit, but he retained his tour card for 2005 thanks to a five year exemption for his Volvo Masters victory.

Swede PierreFulke, winner of the Volvo Masters last November and runner-up in the World Match Play Championship in Melbourne in January, was to have made the £4.3million tournament his first-ever US Tour start.
Fulke has not played since the Dubai Desert Classic, where he was troubled by a groin strain and missed the cut.
Fulke is already sure of a Ryder Cup first cap in September, but there will be those who say that the more top-level competition he is exposed to before then the better.
