Paul Broadhurst

Broadhurst did not have a long list of credentials when he turned professional in 1988. He won the 1988 Lytham Trophy and was low amateur in the 1988 Open Championship conducted by The R&A. To finance his amateur career, he had to work as a van driver, a gardener, and a technician in a fiberglass factory. Despite all of the jobs, when Broadhurst turned professional, he had only about $200 in the bank, so he knew he had to play well fast, to survive on the PGA European Tour. In his first tournament he missed the cut, but in his second event in 1989, the Desert Classic in Dubai, he finished third, three strokes behind winner Mark James. His seventh event, the Jersey Open he added another third-place finish behind Christy O'Connor Jr. and in a span of seven weeks on tour banked over $40,000. But the best was yet to come, in his next event the Cannes Open, he scored his first victory with rounds of 65-70-72 proving good enough to secure a $50,000 jackpot when the fourth round was washed out by storms. Enjoyed the thrill of a lifetime in 1990 when he shot a 63 in The Open Championship at St. Andrews to equal the then Old Course record. He went on to win Rookie of the Year honors. Played in the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island, enjoying an unbeaten debut thanks to a four-ball win with Ian Woosnam over Paul Azinger and Hale Irwin and a singles victory over Mark O'Meara. Suffered a serious injury to his right hand during the second round of the 2000 Dubai Desert Classic which necessitated surgery that August. Played in 2001 on a full medical exemption but had to go to the Qualifying School Finals after finishing 157th on the Volvo Order of Merit. He was unable to gain a card but put that statistic right in 2002 at Emporda and Pals, a return trip to the Finals required after he finished 141st on the 2002 Volvo Order of Merit. Regained full exempt status in 2003 after finishing third in The Diageo Championship at Gleneagles.
Played his 500th European Tour event as a professional at the 2008 BMW PGA Championship, a fitting milestone for a stalwart of the Tour for more than two decades. He finished 85th in The 2009 Race to Dubai but the following season was blighted by a shoulder injury; he did not play an event after the beginning of September and was given a medical exemption for his first five events in 2011. Played a total of 590 European Tour events with six wins, nine runner-ups, and a total of 72 top-10s. Won a total of euro 6,840,379 on the European Tour. Played on the European Ryder Cup team in 1991.
2015 Notes: Followed in the footsteps of Carl Mason by winning both European and Senior Rookie of the year honors. Won that title on the Senior Tour when he became the 10th player to win a title in their Senior Tour debut as he beat Gordon Manson in a playoff at Archerfield Links Golf Club in the Prostate Cancer UK Scottish Senior Open. Finished T-4th in the French Riviera Masters before closing the season with a T-10th in the MCB Tour Championship. Was 12th on the European Senior Tour Order of Merit. Did attend PGA Tour Champions Q-School but finished T-30th.
2016 Notes: Winner of the John Jacobs Trophy in 2016 for topping the Order of Merit in his first full season on the European Senior Tour. He produced a career-defining performance at Carnoustie by capturing the Senior Open Championship conducted by The R&A with a bogey-free 68 over the notoriously tough links layout, signing for an 11-under-par total of 277. Duplicated Carl Mason's feat after winning the Senior Tour Rookie of the Year award in 2015 becoming the second player to have won both the European and Senior Rookie titles. Also had three runner-up finishes, SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Open, WINSTONgolf Senior Open, and MCB Tour Championship. His earnings were euro399,285.

2018 Notes: Turning into one of the best years in his professional life.

The win was his second senior major and fourth victory on PGA Tour Champions. Broadhurst's total of 265 matched the lowest 72-hole total in the tournament's 79-year history, and his final-round 63 was the best finish by a winner in the tournament history. A month earlier he teamed up with Kirk Triplett to win the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge in a playoff over Bernhard Langer and Tom Lehman. As a team, Broadhurst/Triplett went bogey-free en route to a 24-under total, and they won after Triplett holed a bunker shot for birdie on the first extra hole. Shot a pair of 69s over the weekend to finish 1-under-par 279 for T-5th at the U.S. Senior Open. Playing in the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship in London, shot a final-round 65 to finish T-3rd 3 shots back of winner Philip Golding.
