Player Notes

Finished 22nd in the Order of Merit for the second consecutive season in 2008 after another consistent campaign in which he recorded four top-10 finishes, the highlights being tied sixth in both the Azores Senior Open and the Russian Senior Open. Pulled off the biggest win of his career when he defeated former European Tour player Emilio Rodriguez in a play-off to win the Qualifying School in Portugal at his first attempt in 2006. Led from round two and finished the 72 holes with a nine under par aggregate of 275, before edging out Rodriguez with a birdie at the second extra hole. It was also the first time playing in Europe for the Sydney club professional, whose prior tournament wins had been confined to Australia. Came close to victory in 2007, finishing third in both The Midas English Seniors Open and the OKI Castellon Open de Espana Senior. Is a keen joke teller, and performs a golf trick shot show.
