In 2017, Paul won his maiden European Tour title at the British Masters following a spectacular final round 61 at Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Since turning professional in 2015, Paul has made an impressive debut in the golfing world. In his first professional event, he led the Dunhill Links in 2015 and in 2016 earned a top 10 finish on the European Tour at the JoBurg Open as well as finishing T13 in his PGA TOUR debut at the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open.
Paul came to prominence at the 2015 Open Championship where, playing as an amateur, he was tied for the lead after three rounds - the first amateur in 88 years to lead the Open after 54 holes. He went on to represent Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup, helping them to a win over the USA. Paul earned his European Tour Card and spot in the 2016 Race to Dubai in the final stages of Qualifying School in November 2015. He played college golf at University of Alabama at Birmingham and as a junior, he was named the 2014 Conference USA Golfer of the Year. As a senior, he finished fifth in the individual competition at the 2015 NCAA Division Men's Golf Championship.
Before becoming one of the top emerging young players in the world, Paul graduated with a degree in Business Finance from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA.
