Congratulations ‘Coach Paul’ (and Happy Birthday!)

December 16th, 2014

Today is Paul McGinley’s 48th Birthday and we join golf fans throughout Europe and beyond in sending our congratulations.

In Glasgow on Sunday evening, after winning Coach of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards, Paul McGinley said, “I’m very, very honoured. I need to thank the people of Scotland. Your support was huge. I had 12 great players, 12 great personalities and a great backroom team and vice captains.”

It has also been announced that Paul McGinley will be Ireland’s golf team leader at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
