  • Ryder Cup shoot out at De Vere Slaley Hall


Ongoing back problems hampered the former Ryder Cup star’s 2010 and 2011 campaigns, although he launched the latter with a share of eighth place in the OKI Spanish Senior Open by Cleveland Golf/Srixon. Lost out to his former Ryder Cup teammate Mark James in a play-off for the Son Gual Mallorca Senior Open in 2009 to record his eighth runner up finish on the Senior Tour. Suffered a major blow on the final day of the Sharp Italian Seniors Open two years in a row. Beaten in a play-off by Frenchman Gery Watine in 2005 after fading in regulation play, then finished runner up in 2006 after a closing 71. Prior to turning 50, won four European Tour titles and earned nearly £2 million. Highlight of his long career came in The 1987 Ryder Cup, when he holed a four foot downhill putt on the 18th green at Muirfield Village to defeat Ben Crenshaw in the singles, and in the process helped Tony Jacklin’s European side win the trophy for the first time on US soil.
