Enjoyed a sixth place finish in the 1999 Gleneagles Scottish PGA Championship, but still finished 132nd on the Volvo Order of Merit and had to return to the Qualifying School for the second successive year. Earned 36th card in 1998 but managed to win card Number 18 second time around. A third visit to the School in 2001 secured tenth card. British parents - father from Wales, mother from Zimbabwe. Still travels on a British passport despite an accent developed by many years in South Africa, where he now lives. Had played the South African and Canadian Tours in recent years, winning four times each in Canada and South Africa. Twice came fourth on the Canadian Order of Merit and was sixth in 1998, winning $50,000.
