Five times World Indoor Bowls Singles Champion with two recent Commonwealth Games Gold medals to add to his impressive list of 16 World Bowls Tour Titles Paul is a deadly opponent in anyone’s draw.

If you take both the Indoor and Outdoor game together Paul is an 12 times World Champion, that is impressive by anyones standard and just proves why he such a deadly force to be reckoned with when having to play him. With a decent season for 2016-17 and winning the World Indoor Open Singles Championship in 2017 Paul has gone from 6th to 4th and he will be looking to gain points again this coming season to get back into the top 3. A deadly force to be reckoned with on the Tour.
