Paul Quigley

No one has won more titles in the first century of RIGA competition than Paul Quigley. The older brother of Dana Quigley, he has won the Amateur three times and the Stroke Play nine times at nine different courses. He also has won the Mid-Amateur once, the Four-Ball three times and, just this year, the Senior Championship. Remarkably, he did not begin winning championships until he was well into his 30s. Using a fast-walking, fast-talking style marked more for its grit than natural ability, he captured the Amateur in 1986, 87 and 92 and earned his nine Stroke Play titles in just a 13-year span. His titles in that event came in 1988 at Warwick, 89 at RICC, 90 at Pawtucket, 92 at Wanumetonomy, 93 at Metacomet, 95 at Kirkbrae, 96 at Potowomut, 99 at Alpine and last year at Wannamoisett. Two of his Four-Ball titles came with his son, Brett, now a member of the PGA Tour, as his partner. Just this year, when he became old enough, he added the RIGA Senior title to his list.
