Earned the right to open qualify for Champions Tour events in 2010 after firing a final- round 64 at the 2009 National Qualifying tournament. Score was the best of the day and vaulted him up 34 spots into a T24. Finished fourth on the 2009 European Senior tour’s order of merit and won his first event on that circuit when he triumphed in the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Seniors open. Victory capped a remarkable return after nearly a year out of the game due to a broken ankle suffered in a swimming pool accident. Was 23rd on the European Senior tour’s order of merit in 2007, coming close to securing his first title when he was edged out by Scotland’s John Chillas in a playoff at the Scandinavian Senior open. First secured his playing privileges for the 2006 European Senior tour by finishing 13th at the Qualifying School Finals in Portugal—27 years after winning the European tour Qualifying School at Foxhills, England. Was a regular on the European tour from 1978 until 1996, with a career-best order of merit position of 51st in 1987. Top career European tour performance was a third at the 1987 Ebel European masters Swiss Open.
