Adam HUNTER


Date of Birth - 26 September 1963

Died - 14 October 2011

Place of Birth - Glasgow

Turned Pro - 1984


After completing two a half years of a golf scholarship at Virginia Tech in

 the United States, Hunter  turned professional in 1984. He joined the

 European Tour the following year after coming through final qualifying school. He failed to hold on to his tour card in his rookie season, but was

 back on tour after another successful visit to qualifying school.

Having lost his playing privileges again at the end of the 1996 season,

 when he made just one cut, Hunter did not return to the European Tour

 until 1990. He maintained consistent form though the 1990s earning

 sufficient money each season to retain his tour card until the end of

 1998. His only win on the tour came at the 1995 Portuguese Open, and

 that season he finished a career high 63rd on the European Tour Order of

 Merit. He also won the 1987 Northern Open, a non-tour event.

Hunter was a successful golf coach. He worked many top professionals,

 including 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie from 1998 to 2004, and

 LPGA player Catriona Matthew.
