Biography

After earning his card at the Qualifying School, went on to enjoy a magnificent rookie season on the Senior Tour in 2013, finishing in third position on the Order of Merit. Claimed a superb maiden Senior Tour victory in the Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior), carding a closing 70 in Moscow to finish two shots clear of Mike Harwood and Carl Mason to complete a wire-to-wire win. It came 17 years after he finished tied fourth in the Russian Open on the Challenge Tour – his best finish. Added a second victory in the Dutch Senior Open when he led after 36 holes when torrential rain caused the final round to be washed out. Grew up in West Sussex, England, but moved to Austria in 1984 and then to Germany to become the head professional at Golf Club Rhein-Sieg, in Bonn, where he now resides. Made a number of appearances on the Challenge Tour in the mid-1990s but he effectively retired from competition in 1998 to concentrate on teaching. Decided to try his luck on the European Senior Tour, and got in touch with renowned swing coach and Sky Sports TV analyst Denis Pugh – whose clients include the Molinari brothers – to arrange some coaching ahead of his tilt at the Qualifying School. The move paid dividends, as he earned his card for the 2013 Senior Tour Schedule after finishing runner-up behind David James in the Final, held at Pestana Resort’s Vale da Pinta course, in the Algarve.
