Player Notes

Made a stunning Senior Tour debut at the De Vere Collection PGA Seniors Championship a week after turning 50, eventually losing an epic six hole play-off to his namesake Gordon J Brand. The son of the professional at Bristol’s Knowles Golf Club, he won twice in his rookie year on The European Tour in 1982 to finish seventh on the Order of Merit that season. Played in The Ryder Cup in 1987 and 1989, in the process helping the European Team to become the first to win in America then retain the trophy on home soil. Recorded a total of eight European Tour victories, the last being a wire-to-wire triumph in the 1993 European Open at East Sussex National. Made a late return to form towards the end of 2000, finishing runner-up to Ian Poulter in the Italian Open in October on his way to finishing 51st on the Order of Merit. Spent a large part of 2001 away from golf nursing his wife Sheena through illness, but retained his playing privileges through the Career Money List. Reached the milestone of 500 events on The European Tour International Schedule during the 2002 PGA Championship, and by the end of 2007 he had contested 597 tournaments to be sixth on the all-time list. . .No relation to Gordon J. Brand, who is competing in the 70th Senior PGA Championship.
