The PGA Tour Champions season came to a close in the beautiful surroundings of Desert Mountain, one of the courses on the Jack Nicklaus designed complex in Phoenix, Arizona which played host to the Charles Schwab Cup.
Paul Broadhurst has enjoyed one of his most prolific seasons on tour since he turned professional over three decades ago. Winning his first major championship at the Senior Open presented by Rolex half way through the year which he followed up with his first PGA Champions Tour win, in only his fourth start, at the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. Not only did this victory secure his playing privileges in America for the next two seasons but also meant he became only the third man (Tom Watson and Ben Hogan) to win at both Carnoustie (Senior Open) and Pebble.
Paul finished his season in America in 30th position on the Order of Merit, not bad considering he has played 12 events, and most players inside the top 30 have played at least 20 if not more. A stellar season hasn’t quite finished for Paul who goes to Mauritius for the European Senior Tour season ending final in December where he has already been crowned winner of the Order of Merit.
Everyone at Champions of Golf want to wish Paul the very best for his trip to Mauritius and congratulate him on a superb 2016 season, we all look forward to 2017.
