With a commanding 10-6 lead over the United States squad heading into the final day of the 2014 Ryder Cup, captain Paul McGinley has the European squad positioned for victory. And with a huge, career defining success that a winning Ryder Cup title carries, you can bet Paul McGinley’s wife Allison McGinley will be waiting off 18 whenever that final putt rattles home.
Paul McGinley’s wife Allison McGinley was an English golfer who formerly played for the Ladies European Tour. Paul and Allison have three children who occupy most of their time off the links. With as much clout as being the captain of a continent’s golf team carries, McGinley is kept in check, telling the Globe that he’s “not the captain in my own house.”
Paul and Allison McGinley are able to keep golf in perspective after dealing with life threatening drama outside the game. One of their daughters, Maia fell 20 feet into a manhole while playing in front of their home. Maia slipped on a dislodged a manhole cover, falling into the drain. With no serious injuries to report of, McGinley summed it up in an easy sentence after the ordeal, “We are just so lucky and so grateful she is fine.”
