Profile

Hamilton professional Steve Alker finished in the worst possible position on the web.com Tour in 2013 - 26th place.
 
He was one position or around $1200 from securing a PGA Tour card and will return to the web.com Tour in 2014.
 
He will pick himself up and try again to qualify for the world's most lucrative tour this year.
 
 
At his best Alker has shown that he can match the best players in the world.
 
In 2013 he finished as the leading Kiwi at the US Open in a share of 25th place and in 2012 he played the Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes.
 
Alker finished in a share of 19th place at the 141st Open Championship after carding a one over par 71 in tough conditions in the final round.  
 
The 40-year-old carded rounds of 69, 69, 72 and 71 at the historic links to secure his first top 20 finish in a major championship and earn $102,000 (NZD).  
 
The Kiwi pro finished eight shots back from South African Ernie Els who won the Open for a second time after Australian Adam Scott imploded on the closing stretch in search of his maiden major title.
He returned to the web.com Tour (formerly Nationwide Tour) looking to improve on his 67th 
place on the Order of Merit.
 
The top 25 players on the Nationwide Tour automatically qualify for the PGA Tour in 2013.
 
The former New Zealand PGA Champion showed that he is capable of competing with the world’s best players and will look to take that mind set into the rest of 2012.
