Having been absent from world golf’s biggest event, Total Motion ambassador Paul Broadhurst will once again tee it up alongside the world’s elite as he prepares to take his place in the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale beginning on the 20th July.
His last appearance at the event was in 2012, missing the Royal Lytham cut as The Big Easy Ernie Els over took a beleaguered Adam Scott to lift another major title. However Paul does have his name in Open folk law, he is one of only 10 players to share the lowest round score at the British Open, as he shot 63 at St Andrews in 1990, a very illustrious club alongside the likes of Nick Faldo, Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy and Greg Norman.
Having competed at Royal Birkdale at previous Open Championships, Paul’s best finish came in 1991 as he finished in a tie for 17th place and he will be looking to go even better in 2017.
Paul secured his birth in this most British of events courtesy of winning the British Senior Open Championship at Carnousite in 2016, defeating Miguel Angel Jimenez in the final round to take the biggest victory of his career to date, even bigger than beating Mark O’Meara in the singles at the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island, and earn his place amongst the golfing elites on the PGA Champions Tour to play in the USA for the following season.
