Roll of Honour

Presidents Cup player (1994, '96). Multiple wins on the Sunshine Tour (33), European Tour (16), PGA Champions Tour (8) and other international tours. PGA Champions Tour Rookie of the Year (2004). Sunshine Tour Order of Merit winner (1980/81, '81/82, '84/85, '85/86, '86/87, '92/93, '96/97, '97/98, 2000/01).


Did you know?

McNulty is second only to Gary Player in terms of the number of wins he's recorded on the South African/Sunshine Tour. He also enjoyed a long and highly successful career on the European Tour, which included a second-place finish in the 1990 Open Championship at St Andrews.

Formerly a Zimbabwean citizen, McNulty became an Irish citizen in 2003, his maternal grandmother having been born in Northern Ireland. In making this change he cited concerns about passport renewal delays in Zimbabwe, although the confiscation of his family's farm by the Mugabe regime must also have been a factor.
