Was disappointed not to build on an impressive maiden season, recording only two top ten finishes. Claimed the 2009 Senior Tour Rookie of the Year award after a superb victory in the season ending OKI Castellón Senior Tour Championship. That helped him jump from 28th on the Order of Merit to ninth and meant he became the first former Volvo Masters winner on The European Tour to also win the season finale on the Senior Tour. Also won the Handa Australian Senior Open in 2009, which was his first competitive campaign in more than a decade. Spent much of that sabbatical working as a club professional after a fine career on The European Tour. His best year came in 1990 when he won both the Volvo Masters and the PGA Championship. Ended Greg Norman's sequence of six victories in the Australian PGA when he won in 1986. Runner-up in 1991 Open Championship - two shots behind compatriot Ian Baker-Finch at Royal Birkdale. At 6-foot-4, is the tallest player on the European Seniors Tour with Ross Drummond.
