Career outline

McNulty was born in Bindwa Zimbabwe, but he became a citizen of the Republic of Ireland in 2003 at the age of 50. He was eligible to do so because his maternal grandmother was born in Ballymena, and he explained that his reason for doing so was that he was concerned that as a non-resident Zimbabwean it could take him up to two years to get his passport renewed if he lost it. Despite his citizenship, the European Tour's website states that he lives in Sunningdale in England. Sunningdale is in a wealthy town in the "stockbroker belt" to the west of London.

In the same year he finished in the top ten on the European Tour's order of merit for the first time, placing sixth. He had six top ten European order of merit finishes in total, including second places in 1987 and 1990. The last of these was in 1996, when he came fifth.
