England's Barry Lane, a five-time winner on the European Tour who played in the 1993 Ryder Cup, has died at the age of 62 following a short illness.
Lane won the 1988 Scottish Open, 1992 German Masters, 1993 European Masters, 1994 Turespana Open de Baleares and 2004 British Masters.
The Englishman's biggest pay day on Tour came when winning the 1995 Andersen Consulting World Championship of Golf, a 32-man match play tournament that saw him walk away with $1 million.
Lane also won eight times on the European Senior Tour (now known as the Legends Tour) between 2010 and 2019.
That puts him seventh in the all-time list for wins on the Legends Tour.
Lane made 693 starts in total on the European Tour, which is now known as the DP World Tour.
That puts him fourth on the all-time list for appearances.
