Gary Boyd was disappointed with his final round at the Czech Open on Sunday, despite a fourth-place finish, but says the tournament wins will come.
The Silverstone-based 24-year-old was five shots behind winner Oliver Fisher.
Boyd told BBC Radio Northampton: "I'm very close to winning a tournament. I should have won this one by six or seven shots, but it wasn't meant to be.
"Hopefully I can get a first win and, if I do that, I think I'd get two or three in the next year."
It was his second best result of the year, after he finished as runner-up at the Italian Open in June. He was 38th at the Open Championship at Royal St George's last month.
Last year, a second place at the Czech Open proved to be the first of four top-10 finishes in just over two months. That qualified Boyd for the prestigious Dubai World Championship.
"My friends say this is my time of year," said Boyd.
"The Czech Open pushed me forward last year to a great finish.
"But getting a tour win is what we play for and when you don't come away with the win, no one ever remembers second or fourth."
