Paul Andrew Broadhurst (born 14 August 1965) is an English golfer, originally from Atherstone in Warwickshire.Broadhurst was the leading amateur at the 1988 Open Championship. He joined the European Tour in 1989, 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. His only appearance in the Ryder Cup to date was in 1991.Broadhurst's highest finish on the Order of Merit is ninth in 1996. He 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 the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings.Broadhurst's young son is being credited with helping get his career back on track. He has been playing better since his son told a stranger at a supermarket: "My dad used to be a good golfer." He played in his 500th European Tour event at the 2008 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Golf Club.
