    Finished 75th in the 2010 Order of Merit. Previously showed flashes of his undoubted ability when he finished joint third in the Open de France Seniors in May 2004, and fifth at the 2005 De Vere Northumberland Seniors Classic. Among the strong Spanish contingent which made such a big impact on The European Tour during the 1970s and 1980s. Won nine times on The European Tour, including the 1977 PGA Championship at Royal St George’s. Earned four points out of five during Europe’s victory in The 1985 Ryder Cup at The Belfry. On that occasion, he teamed up with Seve Ballesteros to win two foursomes and one fourball match, and then went on to defeat the formidable Lanny Wadkins 3 and 1 in the top singles. His win against Wadkins meant he retired from The Ryder Cup with a 100 per cent singles record, his other win coming in his previous appearance in The 1981 Ryder Cup at Walton Heath, where he defeated Jerry Pate 4 and 2.
