Richard Boxall (born 28 April 1961 in Hampton Wick, Middlesex) is an English professional golfer.

Golf career[edit]

Boxall turned professional in 1982 and won a place on the European Tour at that year's final qualifying school. He played on the Tour until 2000, and won one Tour event, the 1990 Lancia Martini Italian Open. He also had his best finish on the Order of Merit that year, placing seventeenth. He represented England in the Alfred Dunhill Cup and the World Cup of Golf in 1990.

During the third round of The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale in 1991, Boxall was just two strokes off the lead when he suffered a stress fracture of his left leg while playing his tee shot on the ninth hole.[1]

Media work[edit]

Boxall now works as a golf commentator, mainly on Sky Sports coverage of the European Tour.
