He was also assistant to Seve Ballesteros in the Ryder Cup at Valderrama in 1997. His best results in majors have been a second place at the US Open in 2000, third place at the 2001 British Open and fourth place at the 2014 Augusta Masters. In 2018 he won 2 majors on the senior circuit: Regions Tradition and the Open Championship on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Anders Hansen has been a European Tour professional for over 15 years, winning four tournaments, including the 2007 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. His best major result was third place at the 2011 PGA Championship.
