Biography

The son of two Olympic medallists in table tennis (his mother Jiao Zhimin represented China and his father Ahn Jae-hyung represented South Korea at the Seoul Games in 1988), An continued his family’s sporting success with a runaway victory in the 2015 BMW PGA Championship. Entered the final round tied for the lead and carded a brilliant seven under par 65 to win by six strokes and become the first Asian winner of The European Tour’s flagship event. Had already shown potential with three top ten finishes in the first few months of his rookie season, having graduated from the Challenge Tour via third place in the 2014 Rankings. Took the advice of his friend Peter Uihlein’s father to begin his professional career in Europe, a decision vindicated by his victory in the 2014 Rolex Trophy, where he became the first Korean to triumph on Europe’s second tier. In 2009 he became the youngest winner of the US Amateur Championship aged 17. Goes by the name of Ben and is a huge Manchester United fan.
