Introduced to the game of golf at age seven, by his father, a restaurateur. Not enthusiastic at first, but caught the bug seven years later. Turned professional at age 20 and spent the first four years of his career as a teaching professional in Florida. Helped France pull off a shock in 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup, beating Mark Calcavecchia as the USA went down. Has suffered from back problems on and off during his professional career, but finally made the big breakthrough in 1996 when he won the BMW International Open in Munich. Four top ten finishes in 1999 took him into the top 50 in the Volvo Order of Merit for the only time in 14 years to date on The European Tour. Captured a special second Senior Tour title when he won the inaugural Cannes Mougins Masters in 2010, an event that he co-organized. His maiden victory came four months earlier in similarly rainy conditions when he triumphed in the Handa Irish Senior Open presented by Fáilte Ireland.
