Background

Career

His career to date peaked in 2006, when he was ranked in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking for a short time. After training and competing at Broome Manor Golf Club, he became a professional golfer in 1995. He had no further wins for six years, but his form was nonetheless on a general upwards curve.

After leading the Order of Merit for most of the 2006 season, he eventually finished in 3rd place. A back injury caused his form to suffer in the latter half of the season and limited his appearances through 2007. Howell had previously gone 0–4 in European Tour playoffs.
