In 1995, he recorded his best overall season in his career with 5 top-10s and finishing 43rd on the Order of Merit, both career bests. This success would continue through the early 1996 season as he would open with a 64 (−8) against an "elite field" at the Dubai Desert Classic, placing him in second place, one behind Miguel Ángel Jiménez. He followed that with three consecutive rounds of 71 to finish at –11 and a tie for 7th. His Official World Golf Ranking reached #173, the best so far of his career.


During this interim period he played on the South African Tour. In 1988 he finished joint runner-up at the Bloemfontein Classic with John Bland behind Jeff Hawkes. At the very end of the 1988–89 season, he won the Trustbank Tournament of Champions over fellow American Bruce Vaughan. The following season, he finished runner-up at the 1990 Dewars W Lab Tournament, this time behind John Bland.
