Paul Martyn Eales (born 2 August 1963) is an English professional golfer.

Eales was born in Epping, Essex. He turned professional in 1985 and became a member of Europe's second tier Challenge Tour in 1990. The following season he won the Audi Open, and in 1992 finished third on the Challenge Tour Rankings to graduate to the main European Tour for the 1993 season.

After a solid rookie season in 1993, Eales won the 1994 Extremadura Open on his way to a career best 35th place on the European Tour Order of Merit. He performed consistently, but without winning again, mostly finishing within the top 100 on the Order of Merit until 2004, when he lost his tour card.[1]

Eales was the assistant professional to Eddie Birchenough at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, where he first became an assistant in 1987.[2] He is now the resident pro at Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club. He is a member of the European Tour Players' Committee, and also regularly works as an analyst on BBC Radio 5 Live and Sky Sports. He is the golf ambassador for UK bank Northern Rock.
