Golf career

Broadhurst was the leading amateur at the 1988 Open Championship. He joined the European Tour in 1989 and picked up his first win at the Credit Lyonnais Cannes Open that year, and was the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year. Further European Tour wins followed in 1991, 1993 and 1995. He played in the Ryder Cup in 1991. His highest finish on the European Tour Order of Merit is ninth in 1996.

Broadhurst suffered a serious injury to his right hand during the second round of the 2000 Dubai Desert Classic, and was unable to compete for the remainder of that season. He also struggled in 2001 and 2002, but improved to 89th in the Order of Merit in 2003, thus regaining full exempt status. In 2005, he picked up his fifth European Tour win, and his first for a decade, at the Portuguese Open and in 2006 he made a successful defence of his title. Broadhurst's run of good form in 2006 enabled him to reach a career-high of 46th in the Official World Golf Rankings. He holds the Open Championship record for the best scoring round (−9) in relation to par, set in 1990 and equalled by Rory McIlroy in 2010. He played in his 500th European Tour event at the 2008 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Golf Club. [2]

After turning 50 in August 2015, Broadhurst had immediate success on the European Senior Tour, winning the Prostate Cancer UK Scottish Senior Open the same month. In 2016 he won the Senior Open Championship and the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach on the PGA Tour Champions. In 2017 he had further wins on the European Senior Tour, winning the Scottish Senior Open for a second time, and the Paris Legends Championship. In 2018 he won the Senior PGA Championship by shooting a bogey-free final round 63, including a 30-foot putt to save par on the 14th hole.
