Player Notes

A consistent figure on the leaderboards since turning 50 in August 2005, the former Ryder Cup player made his winning breakthrough the following year when he held off an illustrious list of challengers that included two time Open champion Greg Norman to win the OKI Castell�n Open de Espa�a Senior. He declared it a �huge confidence boost� and duly responded by winning two events later at the season-ending Arcapita Seniors Tour Championship, closing with a 6-under-par 66 before defeating Adan Sowa in a playoff. A successful and solid performer, he maintained his playing privileges on The European Tour from 1977 to 1994, with victory in the 1989 Volvo Belgian Open, but perhaps the highlight came when he was runner-up in the 1986 Open Championship at Turnberry, five strokes behind Norman. That result helped him finish a career best fifth on The European Tour Order of Merit. . . Is a former referee on the European Seniors Tour.
