Biography

Continues to divide his time between his burgeoning golf academies and competing on the Senior Tour, where he has won four times. Recorded two top ten finishes in 2011, in the ISPS Handa Senior Masters presented by the Stapleford Forum and the Benahavis Senior Masters. His last victory came in 2009 when he held off one of the strongest fields of the season to win the Casa Serena Open, helping him to finish sixth on the Order of Merit. Won three times in just ten appearances in his rookie Senior Tour season in 2008, landing his maiden title in just his second tournament when he held off home favourite Ian Woosnam to win the Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open and secure the biggest pay day of his career. Followed that with back-to-back wins at the Scottish Seniors Open, when he held off the challenge of another Ryder Cup Captain, Sam Torrance, and the Lake Garda Italian Seniors Open when he edged out Woosnam and Gordon J Brand. Spends the winter break developing his academies, which he established during a protracted break from competitive golf before joining the Senior Tour. His longevity and staying power were emphasised when he notched up a quarter of a century in professional golf in 1999. Paid six visits to the Qualifying School and spent four years in a club job before consolidating his position on The European Tour. Coached by father-in-law, and paints the names of his three children on his golf balls for identification. Once scored 69 at La Manga's North Course, using only a five iron and putter. Chipped in for eagle to land first Tour win in 1992 in the Austrian Open. Won in consecutive years on Portuguese territory, lifting the Madeira Island Open in 1997 and the 1998 Portuguese Open at Le Meridien Penina with his family watching.
