CHICAGO – (January 19, 2021) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation's leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market and title sponsor of The RSM Classic – is pleased to welcome PGA TOUR Professional Abraham Ancer to Team RSM, bringing the total roster of RSM-sponsored TOUR professionals to seven, including Zach Johnson, Chris Kirk, Davis Love III and Dru Love (in addition to Ancer) with the PGA TOUR, and Hinrich Arkenau and Andy Sullivan with the European TOUR.
Twenty-nine-year-old Ancer has established himself as an up-and-coming golf star, completing an outstanding year in 2020 that was highlighted by four Top-10’s on the PGA TOUR, including two second place finishes at both The American Express and RBC Heritage. In November, Ancer’s play at the 2020 Masters garnered notable coverage, holding a T2 spot after 54-holes, and finishing T13 for the tournament. Throughout the calendar year in 2020, Ancer proved to be one of the most consistent players on TOUR, finishing 15th or better at 11 events and, remarkably, only missing the cut once in 21 starts. He completed the 2019-2020 PGA TOUR season Top-30 in FedExCup points, making the TOUR Championship at East Lake. The previous year was a special one for Ancer as well. His strong play qualified him for the 2019 Presidents Cup International team, held at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in December 2019, when the U.S. team defeated the Internationals 16-14. Ancer went an impressive 3-1-1 in his Presidents Cup debut. His sole loss came in the Sunday singles, 3 & 2 in a memorable match against U.S. playing-captain Tiger Woods.
Ancer was born in McAllen, TX, raised in Reynosa, Mexico, and has dual American and Mexican citizenship. He played golf at Odessa College and the University of Oklahoma, where he graduated in 2013.
During his year at Odessa, Ancer was a first-team All-American, and finished in a tie for second in the Junior College National Golf Championship. He was also a recipient of the Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year award. At Oklahoma, Ancer made an immediate impact, winning twice in his first year while having the sixth-lowest scoring average in Oklahoma history of 72.03. He completed his career at OU second in all-time scoring average.
