Received a Special Award at the Seniors Tour Annual Awards Dinner in 2004 for services to golf and in recognition of a career which has seen success on the golf course coupled with important administrative roles. A winner of five titles on the Seniors Tour, most recently during the 2001 season, when he won a play-off at the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open in Switzerland. Remarkably, it was the fourth time out of five that the Scot had secured victory in extra holes. Altogether he competed in eight PGA Cup Matches against the Americans, notching more points than any player, on either side, in the history of the competition before going on to serve as non-playing captain of the Great Britain and Ireland side for the 1988 Match. Served as the course manager and professional at North Berwick for over 30 years. Has put a tremendous amount back into the game as PGA Captain, PGA Board Member and Ryder Cup Committee Member. First hit the national headlines after scoring 69 and 67 to lead the field after two rounds of the 1975 Open Championship at Carnoustie but fell back with a 76 and an 80, finishing 13 shots off the pace.
