Nick Price

Nick Price (born on January 28, 1957 in Durban, South Africa), is a professional golfer.

Price is an Zimbabwean citizen and his early life was spent in that country, a time that included a stint in the army during that country's civil war. His parents were originally English. He began his professional golf career in 1977 on the Southern Africa Tour, before moving to the PGA European Tour and finally the PGA TOUR in 1983. He now lives in Florida.

After a promising start, with a victory in his first year in the USA, his career faded somewhat before an impressive comeback at the beginning of the nineties.

By the mid-nineties Price was regarded as the best player in the world, and in 1994 he won two majors, The Open and the PGA Championship, adding to his first major (also the PGA Championship) from 1992. He topped the PGA Tour money list in 1993 and 1994, setting a new earnings record each time, and spent 43 weeks at number 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2003.
