Biography

A consistent performer during 2011, recording seven top ten finishes to end the year in eighth position on the Order of Merit. Is a close friend of 2011 Order of Merit winner Peter Fowler and was in contention with his compatriot in the ISPS Handa Senior Masters presented by The Stapleford Forum but it was Fowler who triumphed. Claimed the 2009 Senior Tour Rookie of the Year award after a superb victory in the season ending OKI Castellón Senior Tour Championship. That saw him jump from 28th on the Order of Merit to ninth and meant he became the first former Volvo Masters winner on The European Tour to also win the season finale on the Senior Tour. Also won the Handa Australian Senior Open in 2009, which was his first competitive campaign in more than a decade. Spent much of that sabbatical working as a Club Professional after a fine career on The European Tour. His best year came in 1990 when he won both the Volvo Masters and the PGA Championship. Ended Greg Norman's sequence of six victories in the Australian PGA when he won in 1986. Runner-up in 1991 Open Championship - two shots behind compatriot Ian Baker-Finch at Royal Birkdale. At 6ft 4in is the joint tallest player on the Senior Tour with Ross Drummond.
