Recorded two top finishes in 2008 tying for ninth in the Azores Senior Open and the Jersey Seniors Classic. Came close to a second Senior Tour victory in his homeland in September 2006, but a final round of one over par left him tied for third place in the Charles Church Scottish Seniors Open. It proved to be his best result of the year and ensured the Scot finished inside the top 40 on the Order of Merit. Won the Nigel Mansell Classic, presented by Sunseeker International in 2003. Before joining the Senior circuit spent several successful seasons on The European Tour, with his best performances coming at the 1979 Welsh Golf Classic, where he lost in a play-off to Mark James, and in the 1993 Kronenbourg Open, where he finished second. Won once on the Challenge Tour in the 1996 Kenya Open and has also captured several titles on the Tartan Tour in Scotland.
