A five-stroke winner of the 2018 Emirates Australian Open, where three spots were available in the opening leg of The Open Qualifying Series. A week later, Ancer partnered Roberto Diaz as Mexico achieved their best-ever World Cup result, joint second behind Belgians Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry.

Another runner-up finish at the 2019 Northern Trust tournament propelled him into the game’s top 50 and gave him automatic selection for the International side at the Presidents Cup – guaranteeing his place in Sandwich. He also went on to be one of Ernie Els’ star performers in the biennial event.

Ancer made his Open debut at Carnoustie in 2018, thanks to a joint fourth-place finish at the Quicken Loans National.

Born in Texas, he was raised in Mexico and has dual citizenship. He finished joint-second in the Junior College national championship while at Odessa College and, after moving to the University of Oklahoma, won twice before turning professional in 2013.

Having initially earned his PGA Tour card through the 2015 Web.com Tour, he returned to the latter in 2017 and finished third on the money list to graduate for a second time.

Ancer was denied a first PGA Tour win by Rory McIlroy at the Wells Fargo Championship in May.
