Biography

Missed out on a second victory in The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex when he lost to American Mark Wiebe in an historic play-off at Royal Birkdale. Took a two shot lead down the final hole but a double bogey meant extra holes, with the outcome eventually settled on a Monday for the first time in the event’s 27 year history. Has been a dominant force on the senior circuit and achieved a magnificent double in 2010 when he won back-to-back Senior Major Championships, first The Senior Open Championship at Carnoustie in Scotland, and then the US Senior Open at Sahalee in Washington State a week later. In doing so he became the first player to win consecutive Senior Majors since Tom Watson in 2003 and the first player from Continental Europe to win the US Senior Open. Was named Player of the Year on the US Champions Tour in 2008, 2009 and 2010. One of the big five of European golf during the 1980s, has enjoyed a glittering career as one of the most remarkably consistent, resilient and admired golfers the world over. Received worldwide acclaim - and an Honorary OBE - for his superb organisation and inspirational Captaincy of Europe’s Ryder Cup Team on their way to a record 18½-9½ victory over the United States at Oakland Hills Country Club in 2004. Represented Europe as a player on ten occasions, just one short of Sir Nick Faldo’s record. Has been in the upper echelons of the game for more than 20 years - the highlights being his two victories in the Masters Tournament at Augusta National in 1985 and 1993. An Honorary Member of The European Tour, he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2002.
