Brian is among a growing number of Englishmen now plying their trade on the PGA Tour. He was a rookie on Tour in 2005 after being a medallist in his first trip to Q-School since 1995.
When he turned professional in 1997 Brian joined the European Tour and was a member here until 2004 when the attraction of the PGA Tour was too much to resist.#
Brian won his first title, the Peugeot Open de Espana, at the PGA Golf de Catalunya in May 2000 where he met his wife to be, Julie, a former flight attendant and daughter of former England goalkeeper Ray Clemence.
It was not until 2004 that Brian won his second European Tour title - this time at the ANZ Championship.
It was in 207 where he finally made his mark on the PGA Tour. After 2 years getting used to the added media coverage and the extra crowds - Brian blasted through the $1million mark for the first time. His best finish of second came at the Stanford St. Jude Championship to complete an emotional week. Brian had to fly home to Orlando on Tuesday of tournament week when wife and two children were rushed to the hospital following a carbon monoxide gas leak at their home.
Brian is struggling to find his form in 2009. Missed cuts are being followed by top-15 finishes. He currently sits just inside the top-100 so needs to find some form though the rest of the season to secure his card for 2010.
Brian Davis Tournament History
2009 Arnold Palmer Invitational
26-29 March 2009 - Bay Hill Country Club and Lodge - This week marked the return of the Tiger Woods we all know and love. After 9 months out of action after re-constructive knew surgery - a birdie putt at the 72nd hole saw Tiger win as Bay Hill for a sixth time. Those familiar back-nine heroics and a putt that everyone knew he was going to drain saw the world number 1 come from 5 strokes back on the final day - equalling his career best comeback. This remarkable comeback must have been great to watch apart from the eyes of Sean O’Hair who Woods beat into second place.
In Brian Davis's bag...Opening rounds of 71 and 73 saw Brian make the cut by a single shot. However he could not capitalise on this bit of good fortune over the course of the weekend. Rounds of 76 followed by a 75 on the Sunday saw him only fall further towards the back of the field - eventually ending up in a tie for 70th place.
