Player Notes

Turned professional in 1998 after turning 50. Enjoyed a return to form in 2008 with five top ten finishes, the best of which was sixth in the Jersey Seniors Classic, as he ended the season in 26th place in the Order of Merit – his best campaign since 2005. Has won six titles - the last of which came at the start of 2005, when he won the DGM Barbados Open – and has never finished outside the top 40 in his 11 years on the Senior Tour. Was a career amateur before turning professional in 1997, in order to try his hand on the European Senior Tour. His best season was in 2000 when he finished third in the Order of Merit after winning the first and second of his title. Claimed the 1985 Irish Amateur Closed Championship and the Irish Amateur Stroke Play Championship in 1990, and was quick to find his feet in the paid ranks after winning his card at the 1997 Qualifying School. Represented Ireland on numerous occasions as an amateur, and served for a short time as a selector. Worked in banking, before opting to turn professional at the age of 50.
