Irish open Player Profiles: Paul McGinley
World Rank: 252
2012 Record: P8, 3 T-10s, 2 MCs, 1 WD.
Ten years after clinching victory for Europe at the Belfry, McGinley's still inspired by the Ryder Cup. Despite a rare gift for team captaincy, his hopes of leading Europe into action at Gleneagles in 2014 rest on his Tour form, driving the fit-again Dub to three top-10s in four outings. McGinley loves Portrush and has the class to shine.
