Made three appearances on the Senior Tour in 2011 after turning 50 that May, with his best performance a share of tenth in the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Senior Open. Had spent more than a decade away from full time competitive golf. Blasted a course record 60, ten below par and three strokes better than the previous best, in the 1992 Bell's Scottish Open at Gleneagles to share the halfway lead. He did not win that week but he did in the Jersey European Airways Open in 1994 with the help of a 62, again a course record and again ten below par. He closed with a 63 at La Moye for an impressive 22 under par total and finished the season in 33rd place in the Order of Merit with nearly £170,000. Helped his father develop the Five Lakes Club in his native Essex and dropped out of golf for a spell to train as an accountant but after winning his European Tour card back in 1985 he has developed into one of Europe's most stylish and consistent performers with an ability to fire ultra-low scores.
