Biography

An Jae-Hyeong is the father of An Byeong-Hun, a golf prodigy who won the 2009 US Amateur Golf Championship at Southern Hills CC in Tulsa, at the age of only 17-years-old, making him the youngest ever winner of this event, surpassing the record of Danny Lee, from New Zealand, who had bettered the record set by Tiger Woods, who was only 18 when he won his first US Amateur in 1994. In 2005, An moved to the United States with Byeong-Hun, allowing him to train at the David Leadbetter Academy in Bradenton, Florida, while his wife, and Byeong-Hun's mother, Jiao Zhimin, stayed back in China and took a corporate job to pay the bills. An Jae-Hyeong was bronze medalist at the 1987 World Championships in men’s doubles and mixed doubles, and at the 1986 Asian Games, he won a team gold and a bronze in men’s doubles. He and his wife married in 1989 in Sweden, three years before their countries formed diplomatic ties.
