Returned to the winner's enclosure after a two year title drought when he won The Midas English Seniors Open at St Mellion, holding off nearest challenger and three-time winner Carl Mason with a super final round of 69 to win by two shots. It was the second win he has had with his son, Callum, caddying for him, the previous win having come in 2004 at Scottish Seniors Open. A brilliant ball-striker, he was also second at the Jersey Seniors Open and fourth at the Scandinavian Senior Open. After a disappointing first half of 2006 playing on the US Champions Tour, where his travails with the putter cost him dear, he returned to Europe in impressive fashion with a share of third place at the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open followed by tied seventh at the PGA Seniors Championship and a runner-up finish at the Charles Church Scottish Seniors Open, when he finished a shot behind fellow Scot Sam Torrance. Closed out the year 19th on the Order of Merit following a fourth Top-10 in six events at the Estoril Senior Open of Portugal. Prior to that captured his fifth PGA European Seniors Tour title when he closed with a brilliant seven under par 64 to win the inaugural Scandinavian Senior Open at Royal Copenhagen Golf Club, a result which helped him finish tenth on the 2005 Order of Merit. From there headed to the 2005 US Champions Tour Qualifying School and captured the sixth fully exempt card. A regular on the European Tour for 16 years between 1976 and 1992, garnering three runner-up finishes.
