Biography

One of the most consistent performers on the Senior Tour, the Scot finished seventh on the Order of Merit in 2013, the third time he has featured in the end of season top ten in four campaigns. Missed out on a second Senior Tour title when he was caught by Peter Fowler in the final round of the French Riviera Masters – one of seven top ten finishes in the 2013 season. Fired a superb closing round of 61 – including a front nine of 29 - in the WINSTONgolf Senior Open, but ultimately came up one shot short as Gordon Brand Jnr took the title. Was also runner up twice in 2012 and was in contention for the John Jacobs Trophy in 2011 before an eye injury blighted the second half of his season. Still managed to finish third on the Order of Merit following a superb start to the year in which he amassed seven top ten finishes in nine appearances including a maiden Senior Tour title, completing a PGA double when he captured The De Vere Club PGA Seniors Championship in emphatic style, finishing nine strokes clear of Gordon Brand Jnr at Slaley Hall. That came ten years after the biggest win of his career, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club where he produced the performance of his life to edge out Angel Cabrera and Sir Nick Faldo, one of three victories on The European Tour. Had a consistent start to life on the Senior circuit in 2010, recording eight top ten finishes and narrowly missing out on a maiden title when he was runner-up to George Ryall in the inaugural Van Lanschot Senior Open. Finished seventh on the 2010 Order of Merit. Born in Bolton, Lancashire, but raised in Edinburgh. Won the English Amateur Championship in 1982 but, after many years living in Scotland, was eventually given status as a Scot. Won all four games in 1983 Walker Cup and won Qualifying School later that year. Fought a two year battle with the energy sapping illness ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), but returned to win twice in the nineties.
