BROADY WINS AT PEBBLE BEACH

General Club Noticeboard : BROADY WINS AT PEBBLE BEACH

PAUL Broadhurst's incredible start to life as a Senior golfer reached another high as he won his first event in America.

The 51-year-old triumphed at the PGA Tour Champions Nature Valley First Tee Open held at Pebble Beach over the weekend.


He claimed a winning share of 300,000 US Dollars (around £230,000) to add to the Senior Open Championship he won in July.

The Atherstone golfer finished with a 4-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Bernhard Langer and playing partner Kevin Sutherland.

Broadhurst joined Ben Hogan and Tom Watson as the only players to win at both Pebble Beach and Carnoustie (Senior Open).

"Obviously, the scoreboards are all around the last four holes so I was well aware of what was going on and knew I needed to birdie the last to avoid a playoff," Broadhurst said. "Probably hit two of the best shots I've ever hit up 18. Perfect tee shot and a really good utility into the green just on the front edge. I managed to two-putt from 30 feet, so yeah, absolutely delighted."

Since turning 50, and qualifying for Seniors golf, Broadhurst's career has enjoyed a remarkable spell of success.

In his first on the European Seniors Tour, he won the Scottish Masters in August last year.

His win at Carnoustie earned his way onto the lucrative PGA Tour Champions in America, and in six events he has earned $644,800 (around £494,000).

The 1991 Ryder Cup star is also top of the European Senior Tour order of merit having earned 353,235 Euros in eight events.
