Clement Sordet, one of France's brightest young golfing stars, turned professional in July 2015, recording a first win in just his fourth tournament at the Northern Ireland Open the following month.
He featured at The Open Championship for the first time at Royal Troon in 2016 and will play on the European Tour full-time for the first time in 2018.
His glittering amateur career included playing for France at the World Cup and made his professional debut on the European Challenge Tour in Slovakia in 2015.
Grenoble-born Clement, 22nd in the World Amateur Golf Rankings when he turned professional and a member of the European team in the Palmer Cup, became one of America's top Collegiate golfers while at Texas Tech University and won six titles.
Clement did not take long to make his mark after turning professional.
Having finished in a share of 26th at the Fred Olsen Challenge de Espana in his second tournament, Clement picked up a first win at his fourth attempt, at the Northern Ireland Open in August 2015.
The Frenchman started the week with rounds of 67, 66 and 68 to start the final day in a share of third place, two shots off the lead at Galgorm Castle.
He moved ahead at the turn and a bogey-free back nine, including two birdies, was enough to see him to victory with a 66.
Clement said: “I am living my dream. It feels amazing."
After his success in finishing second a the Thailand Championship in December 2015, securing at spot at The Open Championship, he picked up his second professional win at the Turkish Airlines Challenge in May 2016.
Clement picked up a third victory at the Viking Challenge in August 2017, winning the 54-hole tournament by five shots with rounds of 70, 66 and 67.
His impressive performance continued into the end of the year, with fourth place at Ras Al Khaimah and finished second in the Road to Oman to secure his European Tour card for 2018.
