    Regained his European Tour card for the 2020 season at Qualifying School Final Stage and finished third at the South African Open hosted by the City of Johannesburg - his third start of the season - by birdieing the final hole of the tournament to earn a spot in The Open Championship at Royal St George's.

    Made headlines early in his European Tour career when, at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, he was photographed asking Tiger Woods for an autograph on the driving range, while he also requested several selfies with other heroes such as Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose.

    His breakthrough Challenge Tour victory at the lucrative Foshan Open, which helped him jump 41 places in the Rankings and secure a top 15 spot, and European Tour graduation.

    In May 2021, became a Guinness World Record Holder after breaking the record for the 'farthest golf shot caught in a moving car'. Armitage drove a ball 303 yards which was caught in a BMW M8 Convertible by BMW touring car driver Paul O'Neill.

    Just a month later, Armitage secured an emotional maiden European Tour victory as he overturned a four-stroke final round deficit to win the Porsche European Open.

    The Huddersfield native had previously won three times on the EuroPro Tour.
