Stated his intention to retire at the end of the 2011 season following 13 successful seasons on the Senior Tour. Came close to signing off with a victory in the Belas Clube de Campo Senior Open de Portugal but had to settle for a share of fourth place. Enjoyed his best season since 2003 when he ended the 2010 campaign in 12th place on the Order of Merit, with five top ten finishes including runner up in the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open. Has been a consistent figure on the Senior Tour after working hard to improve his swing and was rewarded when he won the 2005 Algarve Seniors Open of Portugal, draining a 30 foot birdie putt on the last green for a one stroke victory and his third title on the Senior Tour. Nicknamed ‘Mouse’ after the cartoon character ‘Mighty Mouse’ in recognition of his size and the prodigious distances he hits the ball. His first win came in the 2001 European Seniors Tour Championship and the second in the 2003 De Vere Northumberland Seniors Classic. Finished third in the Order of Merit in his rookie season in 1999 and fifth in 2001. A natural athlete, he took up golf at the age of 14 when he realised he was never going to be tall enough to play basketball or American football.
