Player Notes

Produced one of the finest performances of the 2003 season when he closed with a 64 to claim a five shot victory at the Tunisian Seniors Open. It was the Australian's second win in four seasons on the Seniors Tour and saw him move into the top ten on the Order of Merit. Endured a series of health problems during 2001 and 2002 but he put those behind him in 2003 with a series of strong performances. Prior to joining the Seniors Tour he won a number of events in Australia. He also represented Australia in the 1977 World Cup and the 1978 international match against Japan. During the 1970s, he was an occasional visitor to Europe with his best finish on the European Tour coming when he shared 17th place at the 1978 Italian Open. David Good was arguably the most improved player on the 2001 European Seniors Tour, jumping from 25th to fourth on the Order of Merit and claiming his first Tour title when defeating Jerry Bruner in a play-off for the Legends in Golf tournament in Holland. Won for the second time in Oct. 2003 when a course record 64 in the final round gave him the Tunisian Seniors Open. During the 2000 season, when his best performance was a tie for third place at the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open in Switzerland, Good frequently complained of feeling tired and listless, so much so that during the close season he decided to seek medical advice, the end result being that he was advised to undergo surgery on a blocked artery in his heart. Fully recovered, the Australian was a revelation during 2001, winning once, missing out on a second title when he lost to Scotland's David Huish in the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open and claiming seven other top-10 finishes. Prior to joining the European Seniors Tour, David won a number of tournaments in Australia. He also represented Australia in the 1977 World Cup and in the 1978 international match against Japan. Also made a few visits to Europe, his best finish on The European Tour coming when he finished joint 17th at the 1978 Italian Open. David's partner, Annie, caddies for him on the Seniors circuit.
