Abraham Ancer (born 27 February 1991) is a Mexican professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He won the 2018 Emirates Australian Open.

Contents Amateur career

Ancer was born in McAllen, Texas, raised in Reynosa, Mexico, and has dual American and Mexican citizenship.[2] He played college golf at Odessa College and the University of Oklahoma, from which he graduated in 2013 with a degree in General Studies.[2] [3]

During his one year at Odessa, Ancer was a first-team All-American and finished in a tie for second in the Junior College National Golf Championship. At Oklahoma, he saw his most success during his first year, winning twice while having the sixth-lowest scoring average in Oklahoma history of 72.03. During his entire career, he ended up second in all-time scoring average.[3]

Professional career

Ancer turned professional in 2013. In December 2014, he tied for 35th place at the Tour Qualifying School final stage.[4] He played on the Tour in 2015, where he finished runner-up at the Brasil Champions in March and won the Nova Scotia Open in July.[5]

He finished 11th in the regular season money list, which earned him a PGA Tour card for the 2016 season.[6] In his rookie year, Ancer didn't perform consistently, with a best finish of T-18 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He finished 190th in FedEx Cup points and couldn't maintain his card for the 2017 season, which sent him back to the Tour.[7][2]

During the 2017 Tour, Ancer carded five top-5 finishes, including three runner-up finishes, which allowed him to secure his PGA Tour card for the 2018 season by finishing in 3rd place on the regular season money list.[2][8]

During the 2018 season, Ancer finished 9th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, 8th at the Houston Open, 4th at the Quicken Loans National, 5th at the RBC Canadian Open, and 7th at the Dell Technologies Championship. The Quicken Loans National was part of the Open Qualifying Series and his high finish gave him an entry to the 2018 Open Championship, his first major championship, where he had rounds of 71 and 78 and missed the cut. In the PGA Tour season Ancer earned US$1.7 million and finished 60th in the FedEx Cup.

Ancer had a good start to the 2018–19 season with top-5 finishes in the CIMB Classic and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, results that lifted him into the world top-100 for the first time. He followed this up with a 5-stroke victory in the Australian Open, a week before representing Mexico in the World Cup of Golf. His Australian Open win gave him an entry to the 2019 Open Championship.
