Abraham Ancer

Ancer was born in McAllen, Texas but grew up in Reynosa, Mexico, where he lived until age 14. His parents are both natives of Mexico, and he has dual citizenship in Mexico and the United States. His father Abraham Sr. got him started playing soon after he was born. There are pictures at the Club Campestre de Reynosa of Ancer in diapers holding a club. As soon as Ancer was walking he was hitting golf balls. He played regularly at the Club Campestre de Reynosa and the golf pros there taught him the basics of the game, but as he grew up was able to help himself and has never had a swing coach to this day. Moved from Reynosa to Mission, Texas for high school when he was 15. Despite going to school in the United States he wasn't recruited for major college golf. So he played at Odessa College, a junior college, and then was recruited and went to the University of Oklahoma, from which he graduated in 2013.
During his one year at Odessa, Ancer was a first-team All-American and finished T-2nd at the Junior College National Golf Championship. At Oklahoma, he experienced his most success during his first year, winning twice while having the sixth-lowest scoring average in Oklahoma history of 72.03. He ended up second in all-time scoring average during his college years and ended up with the third-most birdies (352) in school history.
Ancer turned professional in 2013. In December 2014, he finished T-35th at the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying School final stage. Unfortunately his father passed away from a heart attack in 2014 and didn't live long enough to realize Abraham's success.
2015 Notes: He played on the Korn Ferry Tour, where he finished runner-up at the Brasil Champions in March and won the Nova Scotia Open. In 25 events, he made 11 cuts and had those two top-10s, and was 11th in the regular-season race, which got him his PGA Tour card. At the Nova Scotia Open, was able to defeat Bronson Burgoon with a birdie on the second playoff hole.
2016 Notes: Struggled on the PGA Tour, playing in 19 events. He made only six cuts, with a best finish a T-18th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Ranked 190th in the final FedExCup race. Played in eight events on the Korn Ferry Tour and was 143rd on the money list. Best finish was T-14th at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open.
2017 Notes: Played on the Korn Ferry Tour and finished with a pair of top-10s in his first four events: T-5th at the Bahamas Great Exuma and 4th at the Panama Claro Championship. Also had a pair of runner-up finishes: Lost in a playoff with Lanto Griffin at the Nashville Open, then was 2nd again at the Utah Championship, one stroke behind winner Brice Garnett. Had his third runner-up finish at the WinCo Foods Portland Open, again to Brice Garnett, but this time was four strokes back. Secured his PGA Tour card for the 2017-18 season with a third-place finish on the 2017 Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Money List.
2018 Notes: Played in 30 PGA Tour events, making 20 cuts with five top-10 finishes. Ranked 60th in the final FedExCup standings. His first PGA Tour career top-10 result was a T-9th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Was T-8th at the Houston Open and had his best finish ever with a T-4th at the Quicken Loans, which earned him a spot in the British Open, which was his first start in a major. He missed the cut, but the next week finished fifth at the RBC Canadian Open after opening with a first-round 73. Shot 66-65-67 to finish six behind winner Dustin Johnson. Played in three FedExCup playoff events. Finished T-7th at the Dell Technologies Championship, where he went into the final round with a one-shot lead but shot 73 to finish five shots behind winner Bryson DeChambeau. He ended his year by winning the Emirates Australian Open. Ancer did it with rounds of 69-69-65-69 for a five-shot victory, the biggest win of his career thus far.
2019 Notes: Played in 27 PGA Tour events, making 20 cuts with four top-10 finishes. Ranked 21st in the final FedExCup standings. Started the PGA Tour schedule with a T-5th at the CIMB Classic and a T-4th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. After winning the Emirates Australian Open at the end of the 2018 calendar year, he didn't have another top-10 for 31 weeks, a T-8th at the Travelers Championship. Prior to that, his best finish was T-12th at the Players Championship. Entered the FedExCup playoffs 67th, but moved up with a 2nd-place result at the Northern Trust, shooting a final-round 69 to finish one stroke behind winner Patrick Reed. That performance helped him to his best PGA Tour finish along with clinching a spot in the Tour Championship and earning a berth with the International Team at the Presidents Cup. He finished T-28th at the BMW Championship and T-21st at the Tour Championship. With his dual Mexican citizenship, played on his first Presidents Cup team, won his first three-team matches, halved his last team match, and lost his singles match to Tiger Woods for a 3-1-1 record.

The final round included birdies at holes 15, 16, and 17 as he came within a whisker of making birdie at 18 which would have made him the first player to ever birdie Quail Hollow's "Green Mile."

His caddie Dale Vallely is one of his closest friends and has been on the bag since the summer of 2016. But after The American Express, Vallely, who is Canadian, ran into visa issues and hasn't caddied for Ancer since the Amex. In his next three events, Ancer used three different caddies and struggled. At the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, he got Benji Thompson, who used to caddie for Lexi Thompson and Kevin Chappell, and is now expected to be Ancer's caddie for the foreseeable future.
