Greg Owen

Gregory Clive Owen (born 19 February 1972) is an English professional golfer.

Owen was born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. He turned professional in 1992 and gained his European Tour card at the 1997 qualifying school. He finished in the top 100 of the Order of Merit every year from 1998 to 2004, and won for the first time on tour at the 2003 Daily Telegraph Damovo British Masters at his 158th tournament.

Since 2005 Owen has played mainly on the United States based PGA Tour. His best finish in the United States was second at the 2006 Bay Hill Invitational, where he finished one shot behind Rod Pampling after playing the last two holes in three over par. Having lost his PGA Tour card at the end of 2007, he bounced back the following season, to graduate directly from the second tier Nationwide Tour by finishing in 10th place on the money list.
