Biography

Returned to competitive action after a decade away when he joined the Senior Tour in 2013. After making the cut in both the US Senior PGA Championship and The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex, finishing tied 20th in the latter, he was in contention in the Berenberg Masters after an opening 65, eventually settling for a share of fifth position. Comes from a talented sporting family. One brother, Glenn, is a former New Zealand test cricketer while another, Brian, was a hockey international. Graduated from Oklahoma University and won 1984 New Zealand PGA title. Australia’s Rookie of the Year in 1985. Passionate about politics and journalism. Came close to a fifth European Tour title in 1999, but lost to Retief Goosen in a play-off for the Novotel Perrier Open de France. His last win came in the 1997 British Masters, 11 years after his first at the Scandinavian Open. A keen part-time journalist, he enjoys writing newspaper articles for publications in his native New Zealand and in Europe
