Two victories on the PGA Tour catapulted Daniel onto the world stage. His breakthrough came in 2007 when he recorded his first win at the Ginn sur Mer Classic. That victory earned him a place in the prestigious season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship in Hawaii the following year where he went on to take top spot.

And after a solid season on the Web.com Tour (formerly the Nationwide Tour) in 2013, Daniel will have a chance of winning on the PGA Tour for a third time in 2014.

He finished in the top-25 on the Web.com Tour Money List to regain his exempt status on the world’s leading circuit and pave the way for a lucrative 2014.

Daniel has won on nearly every Tour in the game of golf and he has claimed 14 professional tournaments around the world. The list includes three Web.Com Tour events, three events in Europe, and six tournaments in Asia (two each in India, Malaysia, and Chinese Taipei).

The talented golfer played on 10 different golf tours on four continents before joining the PGA Tour in 2004.

Half Indian and half Swedish, he moved to India when he was seven and was raised by his grandparents in New Delhi. He won the All-India Junior Championship at age 14 as well as the Doug Sanders World Junior title.
