Player Notes

Joins the Senior Tour in 2009 following a spell as a Tour Rules Official. After 18 unbroken years on The European Tour, was compelled in 1999 to pay his first visit to the Qualifying School since 1981 to regain his card rather than rely on invitations. Finished in 12th place after the six-round marathon. 'It's like 108 first holes of the British Open,' he said candidly, after the nerve-wracking experience. The move paid off as he finally won in his 472nd European Tour start. Beat Padraig Harrington at the second hole of the play-off for the 2000 Brazil Rio de Janeiro 500 Years Open. Underwent laser surgery on his eyes after years of wearing glasses. When he turned professional in 1981 it was with an impressive amateur pedigree, including an English Amateur Championship and a Walker Cup appearance in 1981 when he beat Hal Sutton twice in one day at Cypress Point. Six times a runner-up on The European Tour before winning in Brazil, then went into the winner's circle again late in 2000, capturing the Hassan II Trophy in Morocco. Reached the milestone of 500 European Tour appearances in the 2001 Algarve Open de Portugal. Currently serves on The European Tour board of directors.
