Biography

The colourful Zimbabwean became the first international player to win the US Senior PGA Championship since Gary Player in 1990 when he edged out Eduardo Romero at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in 2007 to claim his first Tour title for almost 23 years. Secured three victories on the 1984 US PGA Tour, but then sustained serious injuries after striking a hidden tree stump while playing in the 1985 Goodyear Classic in Port Elizabeth. That incident resulted in him requiring a series of wrist, neck and shoulder operations, and at one time he was told that he might never play golf again.
