Another consistent campaign in 2009 saw the Scot finished 11th on the Order of Merit following six top ten finishes. Highlight of his season arguably came in the US Senior PGA Championship which he led by two strokes at the halfway mark, eventually finishing a respectable tied 37th at Canterbury Golf Club in Ohio. Was the subject of Guardian golf correspondent Lawrence Donegan’s entertaining travelogue and golf book ‘Four Iron in the Soul’ in 1996. Coincidentally it turned out to be his best season on The European Tour as he finished runner up to Retief Goosen in the Slaley Hall Northumberland Challenge and then third behind Jesper Parnevik in the Trophée Lancôme, en route to 42nd place on that year’s Money List. The following year he lost his card, thereby ending a 20 year unbroken run on Tour. Started a new chapter in his own career with a share of sixth place on his European Senior Tour debut at the 2007 DGM Barbados Open, and was runner-up twice during this rookie season en route to finishing sixth in the money list. Winner Of The Scottish Professional Championship In 1986, '87, '89 & '90.
