Biography

The highlight of his 2008 season was tied 14th in his first appearance – the Azores Senior Open. In 2007, he enjoyed his best year competing on the European Senior Tour. He was runner-up at the Sharp Italian Seniors Open in May, helped by his lowest ever senior round, a nine under par 63 in the second round, to collect his biggest prize: €15,000. A tied 13th finish at the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open gave the American his next best result of the campaign. Ended in 59th spot on the Order of Merit in 2006 and just like in 2005, he returned to the Qualifying School to secure a conditional card. Spent much of his career playing in Asia and went on to become an administrator on the Asian Tour, before focusing on playing senior golf.
