Player Notes

Won three times in just 11 appearances in his rookie Senior Tour season, landing his maiden title in just his second tournament when he held off home favorite Ian Woosnam to win the Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open and secure the biggest pay day of his career. Followed that with back-to-back wins at the Scottish Seniors Open, when he held off the challenge of another Ryder Cup Captain, Sam Torrance, and the Lake Garda Italian Seniors Open when he edged out Woosnam and Gordon J Brand. His longevity and staying power were emphasized when he notched up a quarter of a century in professional golf in 1999. Paid six visits to the Qualifying School and spent four years in a club job before consolidating his position on The European Tour. Coached by father-in-law, and paints the names of his three children on his golf balls for identification. Once scored 69 at La Manga's North Course, using only a five iron and putter. Chipped in for eagle to land first Tour win in 1992. Won in consecutive years on Portuguese territory, lifting the Madeira Island Open in 1997 and the 1998 Portuguese Open at Le Meridien Penina with his family watching. Maintained his Portuguese form line by collecting fifth place in the Estoril Open in 1999.
