After a hugely successful and long running amateur career, the Englishman turned professional at the age of 48 with a view to joining the Senior Tour. After failing to gain his European Tour card at Qualifying School he quickly made an immediate impact after joining the Senior Tour in 2010, finishing third in the Travis Perkins plc Senior Masters on his debut before winning the lucrative Casa Serena Open on just his second appearance. Played in six Walker Cups in his amateur career and is the all-time leading points scorer for Great Britain and Ireland, famously defeating Tiger Woods in 1995. Won the Amateur Championship in 1991 and 2003. He is playing in his first Senior PGA Championship.
