Yannik Paul

Golf Person of the Year 2023

Representing his University of Colorado alma mater, the German-born part-time Boulder County resident earned his first DP World Tour (née European Tour) victory in October’s Mallorca Golf Open. Paul trailed by two strokes with three holes to play, but his birdie from the fringe on the last hole sealed a one-shot victory.

The win marked one of six top-10 finishes for the DP World Tour rookie, whose twin and fellow Buff Jeremy plays on the Korn Ferry Tour.  As of November 15 he ranks No. 141 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
