Meet Byeong

Is 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.

 

In 2009 he became the youngest winner of the U.S. Amateur Championship aged 17. Graduated from the Challenge Tour by finishing third 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.

 

Breakthrough win came at the 2015 BMW PGA Championship, where he became the first Asian winner of the event. Goes by the name of Ben and is a huge Manchester United fan.
