Who was Barry Lane?
Barry Lane is fourth on the list of all-time appearances on the European Tour, now known as the DP World Tour, having made 693 starts.
When he started playing golf at the age of 14, he swiftly advanced to the position of assistant professional at Downshire Golf Club near Bracknell.
The Englishman joined the Tour in 1982, and in 1987, he won his first tournament at the Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club, the Equity & Law Challenge.
The following year, he triumphed at Gleneagles to win the Scottish Open by three strokes over José Rivero and Sandy Lyle. This was his first career victory.
The spark for Lane’s subsequent winning streak, which saw him finish no lower than 11th on the European Tour Order of Merit between 1992 and 1995, came at the 1992 Mercedes German Masters.
Before his involvement in the 1993 Ryder Cup at The Belfry as one of four rookies on Bernard Gallacher’s team, he had won the 1993 Canon European Masters.
His fourth Tour victory came the following year at the Turespaa Open de Baleares.
Then, after waiting more than ten years, he finally won on the European Tour in 2004 at the British Masters at Forest of Arden, beating off Angel Cabrera and Eduardo Romero by three strokes.
In addition, Lane won the inaugural Andersen Consulting World Championship of Golf in 1995, which served as the model for the WGC Match Play competition that is now held yearly in Austin.
Following his victory over South African David Frost 2Up in the final, he also received a US$1 million first prize.
He also played for the Rest of the World team in the UBS Cup three times while representing England three times in the World Cup and four times at the Dunhill Cup.
At the 2022 Legends Tour’s season-ending MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius in December, Lane gave Brazil’s Adilson Da Silva the newly titled Barry Lane Rookie of the Year Trophy.
Lane achieved rapid success on the then-European Seniors Tour after turning 50 in 2010. He won his maiden competition in Scotland at the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Scottish Senior Open, which he successfully defended in 2011.
He did the same on the European Tour. In his first two full seasons, 2011 and 2012, he finished second on the Senior Tour Order of Merit while winning three times. In 11 complete seasons on the European over-50s circuit, he won eight titles and seven times placed seventh or better overall.
His most recent triumph came at the 2019 MCB Tour Championship – Madagascar, where the Legends Tour made history by making its first stop on the island in the Indian Ocean.
