The Melbourne golfer turned pro at 25 and now 40, he has seven professional wins to his credit including the New Zealand Open when he edged out Japan’s Hideto Tanihara by one shot with a 20-under par total in 2016. His win came with a dramatic final hole battle, coming in one shot behind but his birdie to Tanihara’s bogey allowed him to win by one shot.
His first win came at the South Pacific Open in 2011 in sudden death.
Now a regular on the Japan Golf Tour, Griffin has also played with success on the Korean and Australasian Tours winning seven titles in total but his victory at the New Zealand Open remains his most significant.
