Although born in Durban, South Africa, Nick Price is actually a Zimbabwean citizen who currently resides in Hobe Sound, Florida. It’s an interesting path, which reveals a lot about Price’s rise to prominence in the golf world.
After captaining his Prince Edward School golf team, Price turned to the army during the country’s civil war. After leaving the army, he began his professional golf career by joining the Southern Africa Tour. The Southern Africa Tour led to the European Tour, and the European Tour led him to the PGA Tour and, ultimately, the title of best golfer in the world.
Price’s PGA career started well, but he faded somewhat before a comeback that would shoot him to the top of the World Golf Rankings. In 1994, Price won back-to-back majors, The Open and the PGA Championship, which, when combined with his 1992 PGA Championship victory, gave him three major championships. Price would go on to win numerous other tournaments, lead the PGA tour in money, and became the PGA Player of the Year twice. In addition, Price holds the course record (jointly with Greg Norman) at Augusta National with an incredible 63 he shot in the third round of the 1986 Masters.
