PGA Tour: Abraham Ancer learned a valuable lesson because he imitated Rory McIlroy

World No. 22 Golfer Abraham Ancer learned a valuable lesson because he imitated Rory McIlroy at the PGA Tour. Ancer lost his PGA Tour card because he tried to change his style and give up his knack.

Ancer said on December 2 that he quickly realized he had made a big mistake when trying to follow the play style of other golfers. He is about to enter the Mayakoba Classic painting, the PGA Tour event in his native Mexico from December 3 to December 6.

It happened at the Frys.com Open 2015, now the Safeway Open. It was also the first time Ancer had fought the PGA Tour. At that time, the competitor born in 1991 happened to practice adjacent to the place of Rory McIlroy – now won four major in 10 PGA Tour titles and twice became number one in the world (OWGR).

It was cold that morning. He went to the training ground and practiced the number 7 iron. Then Rory came up beside him. He used the number 5 iron. The ball kept soaring up into the air, against the wind, and reaching 210 yards without touching the ground. He kept gasping, thinking he could not compare. Then he started trying to hit farther and higher without realizing his own strengths gradually shattering. That idea is terrible.

After opening his eyes to McIlroy, Ancer began to change his style of play. However, the new ones are patchy, fragmentary. He swapped golf clubs and tried many things. He kept wearing the play style of the world’s top players without taking care of his forte and overcoming his shortcomings. As a result, he quickly slipped down in just 5 months.

Ancer’s changes left a heavy technical and psychological impact. Ancer was cut in nine consecutive events. In the following 10 tournaments, he only returned to the top 20 once. In early 2016, Ancer lost his PGA Tour card and had to go down to Korn Ferry Tour to find his way back.

When he dropped, he was calm again. The lesson is expensive. But also thanks to it that he found himself again. And from there, he was determined to promote his strengths to achieve the present results.

Returning to his forte game during relegation, Ancer finished third three times, added three times to the top 5 and regained his PGA Tour card. Since then, he has steadily climbed to OWGR, from 272th to current 22nd and at times to 17th.

Since 2017, Ancer has twice entered the Tour Championship, the annual PGA Tour closing event for the top 30 players on the FedEx Cup scorecard. Last season, Ancer attended 20 events and 17 elimination times, of which twice came second, receiving nearly three million dollars in prize money. This season, he played the weekend in all five appearances, with the brightest point being in the top group after 54 holes and finishing T13 in the major Masters on November 15.
