Challenge Tour winner Paul Howard joins MB Partners

10th July 2018

MB Partners are delighted to welcome the hugely talented Paul Howard to their golfing client portfolio. Currently midway through another successful season on the European Challenge Tour, the 27-year-old from Lancashire joins the MB Partners stable as he looks to enjoy further success in the years to come.

Having established himself as one of the UK’s most promising amateur golfers, Howard joined the professional ranks in 2015 where he tasted immediate success claiming the Paul Lawrie Foundation Granite City Classic on the PGA EuroPro Tour in the same year. The following year saw the Englishman enjoy further success on the Challenge Tour, recording two top-ten finishes as well as participating in the 145th Open Championship after an excellent display at Final Qualifying.

Continuing this upward trend, the 2017 Challenge Tour season proved to be Howard’s most successful to-date as he claimed his maiden Challenge Tour title at the Vierumäki Finnish Challenge by two-clear shots. A further three top-twenty finishes helped Howard to a 41st placed-finish on the Order of Merit.

The Englishman joins the MB Partners client portfolio midway through the 2018 Challenge Tour season and is looking forward to working toward further success with his new management team.

“The past few years have been very positive ones for me and I feel that now is the right time to take the next step in my career. MB Partners have a proven track record in helping players graduate to the European Tour and I am looking forward to working with their entire team to try and achieve this myself.”

Ian Childs, Director of Golf and Managing Director at MB Partners, is glad to welcome Paul to the company’s golfing portfolio.

“Paul represents an excellent addition to our golfing stable. He has already achieved a great deal on the course and we look forward to supporting him to further success as he looks to continue on his current upward trajectory.”

Molly Thorne, Player Manager at MB Partners, has been aware of Paul’s talents for a number of years and is delighted to welcome him to the company’s golfing stable.

“Paul’s talent on the course is unquestionable and he has enjoyed a steady rise and plenty of success in the past few seasons. Paul is a great addition to our playing ranks and I’m excited about what we can achieve working together in the years to come.”
