Swing Analysis: Abraham Ancer

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

Ancer came out of Oklahoma in 2013 and qualified for the Web.Com Tour in 2015. He finished 35th in the Web.Com Qualifying Final Stage and then finished 11th on the Web.Com money list to earn his PGA Tour card in 2016. He failed to keep his card, then played the Web.Com again in 2017, this time playing even better and finishing 3rd on the money list. This year he has 5 top 10’s on the PGA Tour and has won 1.65 million dollars. These swings are from the Dell Technologies Championship, the 2nd Fed Ex Cup tournament. His 7th place finish got him into the BMW Championship with a ranking of 56. He will need a stellar tournament to make it to the Tour Championship, but he has to be happy with his success this year. He has an interesting swing with a pronounced trigger and very high hands at the top of the swing, something which obviously works as he averages 296 off the tee while weighing in at 155 pounds at 5’7”. His putting stats are not the greatest, and he gains most of his stroke advantage off the tee and with his general ball striking. He has a truly sidearm motion with his hips staying deep in the box and his right arm coming in quite high with his right arm staying bent well past impact.
