I withdrew my membership of The European Tour at the end of 2003, because of lower back complications. I started rehabilitation of the lower back and body at the end of 2009 and I'm very strong physically now. Thanks to very dedicated back and Ironman training, I am now in the shape of my life. I have done 4 Ironman competitions in the space of 2 years and I'm 100% fit for golf practice and tournaments. Although I enjoy my golf commentating job and work with young elite players, I still have a lot of golf to be played in the future. So here I come, can’t wait to start on the European Senior Tour!
