Paul McGinley

Will always be remembered as the man who holed the winning putt in the 2002 Ryder Cup at The Belfry. His 10-footer on the 18th green secured a halve with Jim Furyk and with it the trophy for Sam Torrance's Team. However, he drew almost as much praise for the way he battled throughout the season to get into the 2004 Team, proving once again to be a valuable member as he won two and a half points out of three for Bernhard Langer's side, including a final day singles victory over Stewart Cink.
Has a fine track record as a leader in team golf and in January 2013 was announced as Captain of the European Team for The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. Played an instrumental role as one of Jose Maria Olazabal's Vice Captains in the magnificent 2012 Ryder Cup victory at Medinah Country Club, and was also pivotal in the 2010 win under Colin Montgomerie. Has always been passionate about the team format and played in three consecutive successful Ryder Cup Teams from 2002, the year he holed the winning putt. Whether it is The Ryder Cup, Vivendi Seve Trophy, World Cup or Royal Trophy, he has been on a winning team for all of them. In 2009 and again in 2011 he captained Great Britain and Ireland to victory over Continental Europe in the Vivendi Seve Trophy. A winner of four European Tour titles, his best campaign to date came in 2005, during which he finished runner-up three times before concluding a wonderful year with a victory in the Volvo Masters. Might have had a career in Gaelic football but a broken knee cap when he was 19 put an end to that dream, and he had a sixth knee operation towards the end of 2009. Played in the 1991 Walker Cup " beating Phil Mickelson and Bob May alongside Liam White" and gained his European Tour card on his first visit to the Qualifying School later the same year. Continues to help shape The European Tour as a member of the Tournament Committee.
McGinley played full-time on the European Tour between 1992 and 2014. He played in 581 events, making the cut 396 times. Was in the top-ten, 84 times and won euro11,326,659.
2017 Notes: Played in 5 Staysure Tour events, best finish was T-2nd Farmfoods European Senior Masters.
2018 Notes: Played in 6 Staysure Tour events, best finish T-4th MCB Tour Championship - Mauritius.
