Richard Green was born in Williamstown, Melbourne, Australia. He learned the game at Huntingdale in Melbourne and attended the Victoria Institute of Sport. He turned professional in 1992, and joined the PGA Tour of Australasia the same year. Green has been a member of the European Tour since 1996, with his first win coming at the 1997 Dubai Desert Classic, where he became the first left-hander to win on the European Tour since Bob Charles at the Swiss Open in 1974. His consistent performances in 2004 took him to a career best European Tour Order of Merit finish of 17th. That same year he won the MasterCard Masters, which is one of Australia's most prestigious tournaments, and also topped the PGA Tour of Australasia's Order of Merit. In 2007 he won his second European Tour event at the BA-CA Golf Open in Austria, winning in a play-off, defeating Jean-Francois Remesy. Green holds a share of the course record at Carnoustie with a 64, achieved in the final round of the 2007 Open Championship. The round saw him jump 27 places on the last day of the tournament to finish in a tie for fourth with Ernie Els. That was Green’s highest finish in a Major, which earned him an invite to the Masters Tournament for the first time. Another consistent year in 2008 saw his best finish of tied third coming at The Barclays Scottish Open. Off the course Green is a fanatical motor racing fan who loves to race Porsches and competed in the 2009 Australian Grand Prix GT Category
