Biography

Enjoyed a marvellous 2013 season, winning three times and finishing third on the Order of Merit. Claimed back-to-back victories, first capturing the Berenberg Bank Masters in Germany before a week later holding off the challenge of former Ryder Cup Captains Mark James and Ian Woosnam to win the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Championship in Switzerland. Lost in a play-off to David J Russell in the French Riviera Masters before adding a third title in the Fubon Senior Open. Finished third on his debut in the Berenberg Bank Masters in 2011 and then joint runner-up in the Van Lanschot Senior Open after turning 50 in June 2011. Ended the year 24th on the Order of Merit to retain his playing rights having won the Qualifying School the previous November by five strokes in Portugal after a superb closing round of 65. Inspired to join the Senior Tour by his close friend, the late Bob Boyd, who was a member from 2005 to 2010 until his death in February 2011. Won the National PGA Club Professional Championship in 2000 and 2003 and the National Assistant PGA Championship in 2009. The Assistant Club Pro at The Falls Resort shot an opening round 71 at the 2001 US PGA Championship to sit two shots off the pace. Was a former college team-mate of 2010 Ryder Cup winning Captain Colin Montgomerie at Houston Baptist University.
