Paul Way

Former Ryder Cup and European Tour winner, Paul is happy to support a campaign aiming to make golf safer for everyone. Paul is the current course director at Nevill Golf Club in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, a proudly accredited club.

“Golf clubs are perfectly positioned to raise awareness of sun protection, and I urge them to sign up and get involved with this campaign, which really can help address the issue of skin cancer. They can remind players and staff about covering up just before they hit the fairway, provide sunscreen, advice and help encourage good habits, that will eventually, hopefully stick.”

Paul turned professional after playing for Great Britain & Ireland against the USA in the 1981 Walker Cup at Cypress Point Golf Club, and then went on to achieve success on the European Tour, winning the Dutch Open in 1982 aged just 19.

Heralded as one of Europe’s most promising young golfers, Paul represented Europe in the Ryder Cup in 1983, when he became the second youngest player up to that time after Nick Faldo, and again in 1985. He had an outstanding Ryder Cup record of six wins, two losses and one halved match.

Paul went on to win the 1985 Whyte & Mackay PGA Championship at Wentworth and the 1987 Panasonic European Open. Wentworth was the scene of Paul’s win over Sandy Lyle where a 66 on the final day saw him make a play off, in which he defeated the great Scotsman. In 2013 he began playing on the European Senior Tour after turning 50 and continues to play today.
