Peter Baker

As one of the European Tour’s most respected and popular players, Peter takes responsibility for providing support and care to all of the Champions’ professionals working on location with them whilst they are on tour.

Peter learned to play golf at his father's nine hole Himley Hall golf course and was taught by Sandy Lyle's father Alex. Baker enjoyed an impressive amateur career, winning the Brabazon Trophy in 1985, and representing Great Britain & Ireland in the Walker Cup of that year.

After turning professional in 1986, he was an impressively consistent performer on the European Tour for over twenty years, with three tournament wins and a highest Order of Merit finish of 7th in 1993.

In 1993, Baker was part of the European Ryder Cup Team and showed his matchplay prowess by beating Corey Pavin in the singles. In 2007, Baker won two events on the second-tier Challenge Tour, the Credit Suisse Challenge and the Open AGF-Allianz Côtes d’Armor Bretagne on his 40th birthday. In the 2006 Ryder Cup, Baker was one of Ian Woosnam's vice-captains for the European victory.
