Started out by searching for golf balls as an 11 year old at Brynhill Golf Club in Wales, before enjoying a successful amateur career – the highlight being victory in The Amateur Championship in 1989. That gave him the opportunity to play in the 1990 Masters Tournament at Augusta National where he partnered Sandy Lyle and Curtis Strange. Enjoyed a superb 2005 season, notching his first and second European Tour victories, playing a part in Great Britain and Ireland’s Seve Trophy success, before partnering Bradley Dredge to victory for Wales in the World Cup in Portugal. Continued his love affair with Ireland in 2006 when he added The European Open title at The K Club to his Irish Open victory of the previous season, but struggled to hit the same heights in 2007 and 2008. Finished 87th in The 2010 Race to Dubai, the highlights being a four-week spell in the spring when he came tied second at the Volvo China Open, tied sixth at the Open de España and tied seventh at the BMW Italian Open. He held his nerve at Golf Club Udine to win his maiden European Senior Tour title at the 2016 Senior Italian Open Presented by Villaverde Resort by one shot from compatriot Phillip Price. In just his seventh event on the Senior Tour, the 50 year old went into the final day nine under par after rounds of 69-64 and held on in testing conditions at Golf Club Udine, carding a level par final round of 71. He becomes just the ninth player to win a title on the Challenge Tour, European Tour and Senior Tour. He is a fan of Nottingham Forest, but not of flying.
